The War of Independence has begun, and Tucker the Mouse, Harry the Cat and Chester C. Cricket are indispensable to the American colonies' effort to free themselves from the rule of the despotic English king. Harry and Tucker help Thomas Jefferson write the Declaration of Independence. Chester creates the tune for "Yankee Doodle Dandy." And all the animals--including John and Marsha, the lightning bugs--help Paul Revere spread the message that the British are coming. Written by

While attempting to write the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson uses various quotes from American history. They are as follows: "Let me make this perfectly clear." - This quote was made famous (or infamous depending on how you look at it) by former President Richard Nixon; "Two chickens in every pot, two horses in every stable." - A parody of President Herbert Hoover's 1928 election promise that there would be "a chicken in every pot and a car in every garage" if he was elected; "Speak softly but carry a big stick." - Quote by former President Teddy Roosevelt that summed up his view of foreign policy; "The Yanks are coming, the Yanks are coming." - A line from George M. Cohan's World War I patriotic song "Over There"; "54-40 or fight." - This was a slogan by the Democrat Party in 1846 calling for the U.S. to control the Oregon Territory all the way to the 54°40' north parallel or go to war with Britain; "I shall return." - Famous quote by GEN Douglas MacArthur after he was force to leave the Phillipines during World War II.
