Home On The Range

Synopsis: Alameda Slim, a wanted cattle rustler, uses an alias to buy up properties all over western Nebraska, and his next target is the Patch of Heaven dairy farm, where the widow owner cares more for her 'family' of yard animals's welfare then for profit, so she just hasn't got the cash to keep in business. The other animals, mainly carefree youngsters, being unable, three cows of very different temperament and manners rise to the desperate occasion and set out to do battle for their dream home, teaming up unnaturally with each-other, the sheriff's megalomaniac horse and any other animal who can possibly help, even a crazy lucky rabbit and an invincible buffalo, hoping to beat the crook to the Patch's auction, or anything it takes...

# Out in the land #

# Where the men

are tough as cactus #

# Out in the land where

the wild, wild west was won #

Uhh! Ahh...

# Out in the land

of the desperado #

# lf you're soft

as an avocado #

# Yee-haw!

You're guacamole, son #

# Oh, home,

this ain't it, pal #

# Home, home,

home on the range #

# Home, home,

better go git, pal #

# You ain't

home on the range #

# Out in the land where

the weak are target practice #

# Out in the land where

they shoot the mild and meek #

Ooh! Aah!

# Out where the bad

are a whole lot badder #

# lf you're the type

with a nervous bladder #

# Yip! Yow!

Your saddle's gonna reek #

# 'Cause you ain't

home on the range #

# Cowboy,

you're really up a creek #

# Home, home,

home on the range #

# Home, home,

home on the range #

# Home, home,

home on the range #

Howdy, sheriff!




Home on the range.

Once upon a time,

l had a home on the range.

But not anymore.

Well, it's no use

cryin' over spilled milk.

Speakin' of which, that's me.

l'm the cow.

[Fly buzzing]

Yeah, they're real.

Quit staring.

l'm sort of between homes

right now.

l lost my old place...

thanks to the meanest bunch of

cattle rustlers in the west--

Alameda Slim

and the Willie Brothers gang.

# Ooh-ee #



they stole the whole herd...

right out

from under our noses...

and then they disappeared

without a trace.



After that...

poor old Abner couldn't

afford to keep the place...

or me, either, for that matter.

Well, no matter how bad

things get...

there's probably somebody

worse off.


That guy, for instance.

Hey, Maggie.

Take a look at your new home.

Hey! A dairy farm?

Now we're talkin'!

Hope it's not one of them

fat-free places.

[Upbeat music playing]


# l know a place #

# Pretty as pie #

# Out where the river bend #

# Hits up

with the end of the sky #

# lt's left of Nebraska #

# And over a crest #

# On a little Patch of Heaven

way out west #

# Everything's green #

# Know what l mean? #

# Darlin', it's quite

the sweetest sight #

# That you ever done seen #

# Ain't nothin' much

out there #

# Just life at its best #

# On a little Patch of Heaven

way out west #

# Bees by the dozen #

# Are buzzin' real peaceful #

# Every bluebonnet,

doggone it, smells nice #


# Even

the tumblin' tumbleweed #

# Slows down

to match your speed #

# On my tiny half an acre

of paradise #

# Darlin', l swear #

# Once you been there #

# There ain't a view

beneath the blue #

# That could ever compare #

# The only thing missing #

# ls you as my guest #

# On a little Patch of Heaven

way out west #

# Why don't you come visit? #

# There's room in the nest #

# On that little

Patch of Heaven #

# Way out we-e-e-e... #


# ...e-e-e-est #


Wah! Aaah! Ooh! Uhh!

Oh! Uhh!

Hey, that's my boy.

Can hog! Can hog!

Don't yell at me.

Oh. The call of duty.

Why don't you handle this one,


lt's time l gave you

more responsibility on the farm.



Thanks, Mrs. C.

l'll make you proud.

Can hog! Can hog!

Get off my case,

little cocktail wieners!

Whoa, whoa!

l'm sensing a lot

of negative energy here.

That's our can, and Jeb took it.

And now he says it's his can.

Now, let's not play

the shame and blame game.

This is an organic problem,

and there's a holistic solution.

You don't get this whole

farm concept, do you, sister?
