Episode Summary

EDIT
Turnip Trap / Indian Challenge / Gold Rush Gumby
AIRED:
Turnip Trap: Prickle's got a secret, evidenced by the way he chants, "I've got a secret!" over and over as the cartoon opens. Seems he's remembered his birthday wish and he must prepare for it to come true. He starts building a giant cage in the back yard. Gumby, Pokey, and Goo, worried about Prickle's strange behavior, offer to help, and accidentally get built into the cage with no way out. (That was pretty easy to avoid.) Prickle goes back inside to wait for his wish to come true as his friends wonder how they'll get out. Along comes a friendly farmer, who offers to dump his turnips into the cage until Gumby and friends can climb out the top of the cage on the turnips. In an amazing blend of luck and planning, Prickle goes outside to find his wish has come true; he has a giant cage full of turnips. Indian Challenge: Some Native Americans are after Prospector Pete for all of the tales he's told about killing their people. He must face Old Joe, the champion of their tribe. He's scared, what with how they were all a bunch of tall tales, so Gumby and Pokey agree to spy on the tribe and see what he's up against. Wouldn't you know it, Old Joe's just a big blowhard too. And so, Pete and Joe enter a tall tale contest where the loser has to stop telling stories. Gold Rush Gumby: Gumby's lookin' for gold deep in the Pesky Indian Reservation with Pokey and Nopey. When he strikes gold, he's captured by the Peskies. Normally they're a friendly people, but the chief's in a bad mood today, so they're gonna have to get burned to death. Gumby offers to help the chief, whose ailment comes from a toothache. Gumby has no idea about dentistry, so he just pulls it out. Everyone laughs at the gap where the chief's tooth was, so Gumby makes a gold one with the tooth-making kit he brought along.moreless
