Silent till Junior and Gumby get outside "Catching the Mouse"[brief wa-wa-quote]"/PHIL GREEN

PLOT:Gumby proves that he sucks at babysitting a brat.

Gumby babysitting a brat. His mother [shown rather form waist down] leaves the kid in trust of our hero, only to have the brat yell at Gumby several commands, and then when Gumby's walking away, the brat gets in his way. Gumby can't even have a chnace to kick a beach ball, not even in anger! All this is accompanied by kettle drum sounds from comic bandleader Spike Jones [1911-1965]'s venerated drummer and comic JOE SIRACUSA, best known for his "Jay Ward/Rocky and Bullwinkle/Peabody" cartoon sound FX. Goo, Pokey, and Prickle come up only to hear:
"Get that horse off the yard".
"No friends over here".
"NO playing BALL"
The four clay stars manage to sneka up behind the kid when his mother-how convenient, right-comes up to get the kid and praises Gumby. Goo offers some jobs as a close gag "for all my friends". This is a pretty odd episode for reasons mentioned above, and one that definitely deserves to be on the next disc.
