Episode Summary

EDIT
The Blockheads / Fantastic Farmer / Gopher Trouble
AIRED:
The Blockheads: While trying to avoid the Blockheads, Gumby and Pokey enter the Old Western book. They decide to get some milkshakes. The Blockheads slip a scoop of ice cream into Gumby's shake, which the bartender completely ignores and soon, Gumby is stiff as a board. Before Gumby recovers, the Blockheads kidnap Pokey, intending to claim the reward Gumby will soon get. Thanks to the tremendous kick from Gumby's guns, he's able to blast himself through the sky and land on the Blockheads, just in time to save Pokey.

Fantastic Farmer: Pokey's farm is in trouble! All of the corn is growing up hideously deformed, and only Gumby can help. After nearly blowing himself up with a chemistry set in the toy store, he happens upon a formula that makes the corn grow as a single, giant cob. This is just as undesirable, so he turns himself into millions of farmers and races around the field until the corn all comes up right.

Gopher Trouble: The companion to The Fantastic Farmer, this explains why the crops were coming up all weird in the first place. It seems that a gopher with fangs has been putting additives into Farmer Glen's seeds to make them grow more roots so he can feed his family. He gives Gumby until five o'clock to come up with an alternative food source before he undoes all of Gumby's hard work. Necessity being the mother of invention, Gumby comes up with a box that turns dry wheats into roots. The gopher approves, and everyone's happy.moreless
