While his mom goes to the store to get more lizard sauce for the turkey she just cooked, among other errands, Taz watches the house. The Bushrats smell the turkey and try to steal it. While Taz is busy thwarting their attempt, a battalion of army ants, complete with army uniforms, also smell it and try to steal it. Taz gallantly defends the turkey as it changes hands multiple times as they all struggle for it across the countryside. Serendipitously, Taz and the turkey land back home through the chimney with just enough time for him to clean it up so mom won't find out.
This episode marks the first appearance of Chief Bushrat and The Bushrats.
