Storyline

The citizens of Birdville are going about their business: weaving baskets, patronizing the bank (depositing nuts and worms), etc. In the saloon, a gangster type sings the title song, mugs a passing cop, and drinks a row of shots. He looks out and spots the bank; leading his gang across the street, he acts as lookout while the gang robs the bank. The police pursue; shootout. In the hideout, the ganster laughs at his wanted poster. A beat cop spots the getaway car and summons help; shootout, including air support. The cops shoot out the floor of the hideout birdhouse, capturing the lead, who sings, from jail, the flip side of the title song, "I'm just a jailbird now." Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Extremely Fast-Moving & Action-Packed
20 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Boy, does this action-paced animated short go by fast. Of course, it's not long to begin with, but at seems like it's over in a couple of minutes.

At least half of this involves shootouts as the crooks, led by the lookout crook who sings the title song, fire away in a Bonnie & Clyde-type chase scene and then go after him when they discover in what birdhouse he resides.

It all takes place in"Birdville," and we see someone enter the Birdville Bank where there is "2 1/2 worms interest on all deposits." Across the street, on the poor side of the tracks, resides the bad guys are dancing away in the saloon. They spot the bank (they've never seen it before??) and decide to rob it.

I laughed hardest at the saloon dancing, the Tarzan-imitating cop and the lyrics to the song.
