Storyline

The grasshopper Hopalong Casserole easily outwits two birds that are modeled on Laurel and Hardy; he substitutes a bee when they think they've trapped him in a bag, he lures one off a cliff (apparently these are flightless crows), he plays "The Storm" on a piano they are hiding in, and he escapes through the closing "iris out."
