Granny tells Gumby that The Astrobots are taking away the characters in a National Hero book. Then, Gumby commands Pokey and Prickle, and Pokey later informs that he was hiding in a book and that the last of the people in the book (Washington) was being stolen by the Blockheads in a vehicle. Later on, an Astrobot pays the Blockheads. Gumby asks Gumbo for a pumper to save the National Hero characters. Then, all four use a liquid extinguisher to defeat the Astrobots. Gumby, Pokey, Prickle, and Goo are now getting out of the book to send the heroes back into the book.
In this episode, the characters are Gumby, Pokey, Goo, Prickle, the Blockheads, the Astrobots, Gumbo, and several other characters.
