Episode Summary

The Blue Goo / A Hair-Raising Adventure / Goo for Pokey
The Blue Goo: Gumby's been shot down by The Black Baron! So now, it's up to Prickle to defeat the vaguely evil pilot for some reason or another. He's annoyed when Goo wants to ride on the wing, but he tolerates her. As Prickle is ridiculously overwhelmed by the master pilot, Goo flies out and spits clay in his eyes, causing him to lose control and crash. In his stupor, Prickle doesn't notice and thinks that he's brilliantly outwitted the Baron, as does everyone else. Prickle is given a medal of valor for no reason at all and Goo is dreadfully pleased that she didn't receive any credit at all. A Hair-Raising Adventure: Gumby is tired of being bald and decides to lead a more active lifestyle with his new hair! Kapp has created a formula that makes him sprout a rich, natural-looking head of hair that blends naturally in with his existing hair. Prickle, being a reptile, is fascinated with the idea of hair and warm blood and live birth and stuff like that, and decides that the formula is his perfect opportunity to experience a taste of mammal life. Unfortunately, the Blockheads come in wearing gags and packing a machine gun, which pretty much forces them to hand over the formula. There's a chase which quickly spreads to airplanes and becomes a dogfight. The Blockheads escape and overdose on the formula, turning them into hideously hairy things. Prickle finally gets to try the formula, but, being a reptile, all it succeeds in doing is making him horny (in the sense that he grows extra horns). Goo for Pokey: For some reason or another, Goo goes to school with Pokey one day and spits clay at him during class. Pokey's rather annoyed by the odd gesture, but it turns out that Goo's just flirting with him. She decides to take a less bizarre approach and buys Pokey an ice cream cone. Things take an uncomfortable turn when she practically sits in his lap (she probably would have if horses had laps), and Pokey excuses himself. Goo will not stand for this, and she vows to pursue Pokey to the end of the world. Everywhere Pokey goes, he sees Goo. Naturally, he concludes that he's going insane and consults a doctor. The doctor gives him some vague advice and, on the way out, Pokey steps on a blue rug which turns out to be Goo. She wraps herself around him and drags him screaming off to nowhere, swearing that he'll never get away.moreless
