Episode Summary

The Magic Flute / Sticky Pokey / The Ferris Wheel Mystery
The Magic Flute: Pokey and Prickle watch in amazement as Goo's magic flute makes a table dance. When she sets it down and leaves, they decide to "borrow" it a bit. Not only does the flute make tables dance, it also builds brick walls, scores them some free ice cream, and makes a woman get up from her wheelchair and walk again. Now how much would you pay? Unfortunately, they don't pay attention to where they're driving, and they crash right into a zoo. They're thrown from the car, and the flute lands in the possession of a horribly ill-constructed gorilla. The ape plays the flute and makes them dance until Goo comes along and gets the flute back. For stealing a magic flute and screwing with just about everyone in the neighborhood, they're sentenced to raking the front yard. Sticky Pokey: It’s been several years later, and the Blockheads are still trying to get that 100 ice cream cone reward for Pokey. It's driving the little red horse out of his mind! Fortunately, Professor Kapp has created the stickiest glue known to humanity, and he's got a plan. They build a wooden horse that looks like Pokey and cover it with the glue. The next time the Blockheads chase Pokey, they switch him for the wooden horse at a crucial point in the proceedings, and when they grab it, they get horribly stuck. And so, the Blockheads never did anything bad ever again ever. The Ferris Wheel Mystery: Panic strikes when the carnival is robbed of its cheap stuffed animals by hooligans running a black market cheap stuffed animal ring! The Gumby, Pokey, Prickle, and Goo Detective Agency is called in to do a thorough investigation consisting of Prickle, since it's far too complicated and expensive to ask the carneys to keep a closer eye on their stuff. The carnival's problem seems to lie in how they let the Blockheads on the Ferris Wheel and let them stay at the top long enough to snatch a toy with their fishing pole. Unfortunately, Prickle has the observational powers of a blender, and he has to call in Pokey. The Blockheads mistake Pokey for a prize and try reeling him in, leading, ultimately, to their capture. Justice is served!moreless
