This week on The Amazing World of Gumball, “Helmet”, the Wattersons realize that Gumball’s new lucky hat literally has the power to bring good luck to its wearer. With each family member (except Anais) being given a chance to test its effects, such as Richard being given a chance to participate in his favorite game show, and Nicole being considered for a promotion and raise at work immediately after wearing the hat.
The episode parodies The Lord of The Rings a bit, in the sense that Gumball, while initially bored of being lucky all the time, eventually realized that he needs the hat and becomes obsessed with getting it back from Richard and Nicole, who are currently fighting over wearing rights. Anais and Darwin, on the other hand, sees the hat’s dangerous effects and decides to go on a quest to destroy the hat, using a garbage crusher.
Will Gumball get his lucky hat back? Or will Anais and Darwin succeed in disposing of the dangerous headwear. Or maybe they will get corrupted as well. You have to tune in this Tuesday at 7:30 PM ET/PT on the Cartoon Network to find out.
