Episode Summary

EDIT
The Groobee / The Witty Witch / Hot Rod Granny
AIRED:
The Groobee: The zoo's most ferocious lion has suddenly got sick and died. Five years later, Gumby meets Pokey at an exotic pet store, where Pokey is investigating Groobees. When W. C. Fields comes out to give them a demonstration, Pokey warns Gumby to increase his sales resistance, but Gumby won't let the man sell him anything. Gumby buys a Groobee, impressed with its ability to build boxes around animals. The next logical step is to go to Africa and get some new zoo animals. Gumby is attacked by a gorilla, a rhinoceros, and a lion all at once, but fortunately, the Groobee boxes them all up, so no harm done. Later, he gives a speech to the happy zoo-goers about his safari and gives them a free demonstration by accidentally losing control of the Groobee, which boxes everyone in the audience up before the bee can be restrained. The Witty Witch: A witch captures Gumby and Pokey by helicopter (as one would expect) and takes them back to her castle. No matter what they do to try and flee, they witch and her hired help are one step ahead of them. They're sent to the dungeon, where Gumby promises to come up with a plan and never does. They're taken to a theater with hundreds of other prisoners. Gumby, convinced that the witch plans to put on a spook show to scare them to death, closes his eyes and misses the witch's stupid comedy bit, which involves a piano that throws a pie in her face. Turns out the witch just wanted a captive audience for her one-joke show, and everyone goes home. Pokey refuses to tell Gumby what he missed by keeping his eyes closed. Hot Rod Granny: What are all those young kids into these days? Really fast cars, and Gumby's no exception. He and Pokey tear up the road, little knowing that they're on a collision course with wackiness. An old lady who's lost her glasses mistakes Gumby's hot rod for her little car and Pokey for her dog, Hexibar. As Pokey doesn't tell her about her mistake, she takes Gumby's car and drives around half-blind, putting herself in several hilarious and nearly lethal situations, like inadvertently entering a drag race. She's eventually stopped by the police. After serving her term, she decides that she likes the taste of speed, and buys Gumby's car, giving Gumby the funds he needs to buy another car.moreless
