Episode Summary

EDIT
This Little Piggy / El Toro / Bully for Gumby
AIRED:
This Little Piggy: Gumby's grandfather warns Gumby that raising a pig isn't easy, but Gumby's determined to win a prize at the fair next month for his pig, Piggy. He almost immediately goes crying back to his grandfather for help when Piggy won't eat anything. Grandpa suggests giving the pig some exercise, so Gumby gets a treadmill for Piggy. Unfortunately, the motorized walker breaks and starts running away with Piggy, with Gumby in hot pursuit. One month later, the walker arrives with Piggy at the fair, where he wins some cruel sort of joke prize for the skinniest pig at the fair. Gumby returns to the farm, pleased with the prize, but still confused about why Piggy won't eat. Grandfather is horrified to find that Gumby's been feeding Piggy nothing but candy and kindly informs Gumby that pigs eat vegetables. El Toro: Gumby and Goo are standing around happily one day when suddenly a bunch of people run by like they've seen the Tasmanian devil. Something is amiss! Turns out a bull escaped from the local bullfight, and it chases Gumby and Goo up a tree. Prickle is there too, it seems, and he tries to avoid being gored by acting calm. Unfortunately, the bull attacks him anyway, so he joins Goo and Gumby in the tree. Pokey happens along and comments on how ridiculous they look, until he notices the bull, then he climbs the tree too (quite a feat for a horse). They're at a stalemate for a while, until the branch that they're all sitting on suddenly snaps, and they fall to the ground. Just as they're about to receive horrible, bloody death, a torero comes along and scolds the bull for picking on Gumby and friends. For his punishment, the bull doesn't get to be killed in public spectacle. Bully for Gumby: Gumby, Pokey, and Nopey decide to get some apples from Tony Spumoni's push-cart. Unfortunately, they're chased off by a wind-up bull that the Blockheads brought along. With our heroes cowering in fear, the Blockheads come up and steal all of the apples. A whole dollar's worth! It takes Gumby forever to notice the wind-up key on the bull, but when he does, he hatches a plan. When the Blockheads try to repeat their success, Gumby sends a wind-up ape to attack them.moreless
