Synopsis:Curious Goo follows the guys into a knight book.
Gumby went through many books, and here he, Pokey, and Prickle go into a book then Goo goes in. Prickle's always
had a case of profound discrimination-a dino who is constantly mistaken for a dragon (see "Dragon Daffy",1967-68),
which happens here. But Prickle's sneezing, with a trick taken from Bugs Bunny's sole Oscar Winner (ya know, "that
Oscar Winning Wabbit" on the multi network Bugs Bunny show as annoucned by announcer Dick Tufeld?) cartoon,
Friz Freleng's classic "Knighty Knight Bugs", a fire sneezing dragon. But wait------Prickle is a dinosaur! Anyway, he
sneezes in such a way that which causes the yellow dinosaur to slide into a medieval book causing me, aka your fearless
blogger Pokey and Gumby to catch him first, then Goo sneaking in, all of "us" wearing the proper attire.
A group ofpeople form the nearby king's castle (it is in a MIDDLE AGES book!) capture Prickle, mistaking him for a dragon while
a REAL one catches Goo, who then spits a clay call into the REAL dragon's mouth.
We then get a inside view of the castlewith Gumby and Pokey trying to clear Prickle's dinosaur identitry (again recalling "Dragon Daffy") with a stark group of
castle interioirs designsed by the Clokey set building staff and skechers. Goo just then comes in, followed by the REAL dragon who the
King promises can be a barbecue, so what about Prickle? Oh, he just sneezes and wheezes his firey way...around the castle.
Music includes the usual Gumby cues..
