PLOT: Gumby hunts a bone for Nopey.
Our green clay hero has got a couple of bones to pick with his dog, namely for him to bury. Little Nopey keeps buryin' 'em faster than Gumby than throw them as it were, so Gumby get s a big dinosaur bone to bury. Using a steam shovel, he then summons up a small choo-choo train to go get a big one, then sits on that but has others--Gumby, Pokey and Prickle riding EACH of their own..this cameo group appearance results in a buried bone [and a verison of "Yankee Doodle", and buried characters, who pop up like flowers in the Bullwinkle closing graphic, laughing]." And NO, this is NOT the new PORNM flick just because of the title!
Good title animation of the title beiung animatied on and then being animated off. Gumby taking a big dino bone, very risky given someone could spot him..
