When an express wagon delivers Kiko the Kangaroo to Farmer Al Falfa, Al quickly finds the beast a demanding annoyance. However, when police bring the paddy wagon to arrest Al for keeping a kangaroo, Kiko rises to his host's defense.

Boxing kangaroos had been appearing on film at least since Birt Acres' 1896 short subject and Paul Terry was looking for a new lead character for cartoons. This cartoon, directed by Mannie Davis and George Gordon, has some excellent sequences, with the animators doing some nice semi-realistic movement. However, the movie seems underwritten and after half a dozen movies, Kiko would disappear from Terry menagerie. It would be another couple of years before Terry had some success with Andy Panda and half a dozen until Mighty Mouse would zoom in to terrorize cats everywhere.
