Plot

Energetic Egghead is bouncing around pretending to be a cowboy until his obnoxious cadence gets him kicked out of the apartment complex he's living in. While on the street he finds a newspaper ad for a wanted cowboy in Wyoming. He applies and goes to the ranch in Wyoming where he goes through various training sessions, but fails them all (including, most spectacularly, an attempt to rope a calf who ends up roping Egghead instead). A dejected and humiliated Egghead starts crying and decides to leave as the cowboys laugh at him for his failure, but the lead cowboy gives him a different job: cleaning up after the cows and horses.

Trivia

  • First appearance of Egghead, who would later provide the inspiration for Elmer Fudd.
  • The dubbed version is featured on the Kid Galahad DVD.
