Episode Summary

The Magic Wand / The Magic Show / Pokey Express
The Magic Wand: Gumby and Pokey are running a lemonade stand. Their first customer is Professor Hokus Pokus, a guy with really silly magic powers. Unfortunately, he leaves behind his magic wand, which gets out of control and breaks Gumba's good pitcher. Gumby grabs the wand, only to be whisked away to Magic Land, where he finds the giant top hat that Hokus Pokus lives in. Pokus is so happy that he gives Gumby a magic wand of his own which will perform one feat of prestidigitation. Naturally, he decides to use it to fix his mother's pitcher before she gets mad. The Magic Show: The cartoon begins with Pokey spinning through limbo, calling to Gumby for help. Unfortunately, that has nothing to do with our cartoon. Gumby lands in the middle of Magic Land which, according to a living Jack in the Box, is a place where anything can happen. (So, just like any other Gumby cartoon then.) It seems like Gumby is trying to return a magic wand to a magician, but the cartoon basically consists of weird stuff happening mingled with Gumby's encounters with two fellows who guard a door that's set up in the middle of nowhere and are easily fooled when they're trying to keep Gumby from crossing a bridge. Pokey Express: Somewhere in the Old West, there's a big load of letters that have to get delivered to Santa Claus, but those pesky Native Americans keep getting in the way. Gumby and Pokey decide to make the delivery. Things go fine until a bunch of conical creatures show up and start firing suction cup arrows at our protagonists. Gumby and Pokey hide in a tipi and start walking away with it, which baffles the cone creatures sufficiently that they can make the delivery. Unfortunately, Gumby and Pokey are replaced by a buzzard, which can fly and, thus, make the delivery more quickly and with less trouble.moreless
