An elderly Foghorn Leghorn and Barnyard Dawg are exchanging old stories during a game of checkers. Their grandsons outside overhear their talk and imitate their old actions. The flashbacks between Foghorn and Dawg use footage from the following cartoons: (in order of appearance)
Henhouse Henery (1949): The scene where Dawg runs into the fence that Foghorn painted to make look like an open gate, and when Foghorn runs into a mill to create a baseball bat to use against Dawg. only a new bit of animation is made showing Foghorn coming out of the workshop apparently unscathed telling the audience "That, I say, that dawg keeps a-pitchin' 'em and I keep a-duckin' 'em!", but proves himself wrong when after briefly going back in, he falls over in a daze after coming back out. It also makes up the final clip in the cartoon, where Foghorn scares Dawg out of his dog house and proceeds to paint his tongue green.
