Episode Summary

The Golden Gosling / Do-It-Yourself Gumby / Behind the Puffball
The Golden Gosling: Once upon a time, King Ott was pretty evil and he hired a witch to put a curse on a goose so that it could only lay golden eggs. This is sort of interfering with its reproduction plans, so it escapes at the first chance, only to wind up with Gumby and friends. Fortunately, Gumby majored in curse-breaking, so he gets the goose all set up. Unfortunately, Cad Waliter has been stalking them, and he takes them all prisoner. King Ott is dismayed to find that the goose no longer lays valuable eggs, but he's delighted when he learns that it has valuable offspring. And so, Gumby and friends are released, and the goose's children are used as legal tender. Do-It-Yourself Gumby: Gumby's got himself a big ol' thing-maker! Type in what you want, and out it comes. A turkey dinner! A piano that plays itself! A kitty cat (that accidentally turns out to be a tiger)! A cage to hold your newly-created tiger in! A robot to do all of your chores! The robot ends up playing with the thing-maker, so Gumby shut it off with a giant hammer. Remember kids: robots won't do your chores. Don't even think about it. Behind the Puffball: Prickle and Pokey are having a mini-golf tournament to see who's going to pay for ice cream. Unfortunately, Prickle hits his ball off the fairway, and instead of his ball, he hits a different ball that was lying there. Unfortunately, it was no ordinary golf ball; it grows ten feet across and starts rolling after Prickle and Pokey! Prickle is swallowed up by it, as are Pokey and several other pedestrians, but not before Pokey makes one last, desperate call to the Fire Department. Gumby and Goo track down the mischievous sphere. Fortunately, hoses and fire extinguishers are the answer to everything in Gumbyland, so the ball vanishes, leaving its victims behind, none the worse for their experience.moreless
