This is the first Foghorn Leghorn cartoon to feature the song "Camptown Races", which would be associated with the Foghorn Leghorn character.
Foghorn Leghorn was making a fire exit trap for Barnyard Dawg while singing and puts a dry grass in front of his rival and pours gunpowder trail. He whistles Barnyard Dawg waking him up and lits the gunpowder burning the dry grass scaring him and heads for the fire exit trap and climbs the ladder and fells on the ground.
He recovers and glares at Foghorn who is playing a beach volleyball while singing and is rudely interrupted by Barnyard Dawg who begins barking at him and Foghorn puts the beach volleyball unto his mouth shutting him up and resumes singing, not noticing Henery who swings a hammer at him but misses and nearly falls on the ground. Henery goes hunting for chickens and clunks Foghorn on the head.
Once more Foghorn misleads the chickenhawk into getting the dog, by telling him he's a chicken. Foghorn paints Barnyard Dawg's tongue into color green and tells Henery to catch some chicks there turning out he pointed to Henery some ducklings Henery chases them with a club into the pond but he doesn't know how to swim and nearly drowns and Foghorn saves and tells him that is not the way how to catch a chicken and gives him a CPR and Henery wakes up and tells him he needs to learn how to swim.
A while Foghorn draws a fake doorway on the fence and begins hitting Barnyard with a wood plank and he chases him and ends up getting hit on the fake doorway. Foghorn notices him now free from his leash and greets him. Barnyard tries to grab him but he makes a run chopping a tree nearby and carries it into a nearby workshop turning the tree into a baseball bat but before he could run Barnyard grabs the bat and pushes Foghorn and tries to hit him but misses and splits a worktable in half and chases him out of the workshop and Foghorn hides on trash can remarking "Much i say much is nuts!". Henery was walking gloomy and spots Foghorn who tells him there is a chicken in a turtle shell. Henery comfronts the turtle who is not a chicken and beats him remarking that a chicken can't get him when still in a shell. The dog appears carrying Foghorn's bat and was looking for him and meets Henery who tells him you are looking for Foghorn and ends up setting Henry straight, and helps him to set a trap involving a tree and able to get Foghorn.
When this cartoon aired on The WB, the scene where Henery clunks Foghorn in the head with the hammer is cut. This cut is actually very notable, as The WB was the first-ever TV channel in America to edit this scene (even CBS and ABC, which were prone to censoring violent gags from Looney Tunes cartoons -- often involving head injuries and the use and misuse of household tools to cause injury, surprisingly left the scene intact).
