Episode Summary

Toy Capers / In the Dough / Baker's Tour
Toy Capers: Gumby and Pokey decide to play catch, so Gumby works a giant pitching machine while Pokey mans a giant baseball mitt. Unfortunately, the machine goes out of control! When it's out of balls, Gumby goes to investigate what went wrong, only to get sucked in and pitched out. Then it's off to Car City to look at a sleek little toy car. Unfortunately, Gumby accidentally starts it up, and it whisks Pokey away! Gumby's harassed by a little yellow car for a while, until it goes back to its hive and summons a swarm of its brethren to destroy the clay boy! Gumby escapes by a hair's width. Fortunately, Pokey has gained control of his vehicle, and together they escape Car City. There's still a minute or two left to kill, so Pokey gets stuck on a monorail and Gumby climbs a tower of clear cubes to find him. The blocks collapse and Gumby goes through an unlikely series of tumbles, only to end up on the monorail with Pokey. In the Dough: Gumby's lack of cooking skills becomes painfully apparent when his pies and jelly rolls balloon into giant balls of dough in the oven. Fortunately, a lump of bread dough comes to life and offers to give Gumby and Pokey a tour of the giant bakery built into the back of his oven. Things go swell as Gumby learns the art of baking and Pokey refuses to understand anything, but things take a grim turn when the lump of dough grows about five times its normal size and reveals its sinister plan to make them into pie filling. They're mobbed by sentient baked goods, and the next thing we know, Gumby's parents find a Pokey pie and a Gumby jelly roll in the oven. Fortunately, the boys are none the worse for their experience. Baker's Tour: A little lump of bread dough beckons to Gumby and Pokey from within their oven. So, naturally, they shrink down and go in to take a tour of the bakery built into the back of their oven. The first room features dangerous automatic rolling pins which roll Pokey flat. Gumby leaves Pokey on a cookie sheet in the second room, and he mysteriously disappears. In the next room, the lump of dough rises into a threatening monster ball. They find Pokey just before he gets hit by a cookie cutter, and dozens of baked goods laugh at them. Gumby and Pokey have somehow been made into cookies.moreless
