Storyline

A hen's chicks hatch, but one of them is actually an ostrich. She treats it as her own, but the ostrich keeps getting into trouble, first getting stuck after eating a goldfish, then falling down steps into a basement and swallowing a car jack, then having a little run-in with a worm and a lawn sprinkler, and finally getting captured by the weasel. The weasel sings a version of the title song, with lyrics about how great the ostrich will be when it's cooked. Meanwhile, the ostrich swallows first the hanging light bulb; when forced to disgorge that, he swallows a box of fireworks, which goes off when the ostrich is in the oven. The weasel, having had enough, sets the ostrich free. The ostrich puts on a fireworks show, ending with "eat at Sloppy Joe's." Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Eggs can have mysterious things

A hen lays eggs and one egg hatches into an ostrich. The ostrich is very curious and lands himself in trouble. He finds a moving water hose and tries to attack it but loses and he also gets his head stuck in a hole.

A weasel tries to make him his dinner but when he eats the lightblub and the fireworks, the weasel can't take it anymore. The ostrich's fireworks explode attacking the weasel and damaging him. The hen reunites with the ostrich. One of his fireworks says Eat Sloppy Joes as the cartoon ends.

First cartoon with Merrily We Roll Along in closing titles. Blue Ribbon reissue on 12/9/44 retains original closing but there is a dubbed version however, the colors look worse than the original.
