Storyline

Chickens from Plymouth Rock College and the Rhode Island Reds prepare for the big game. At the pre-game dance at Plymouth Rock, a glee club sings the title song. The big game arrives; Plymouth Rock is coached by a duck, and Rhode Island by a rooster. And the game turns out to be, not football, but laying eggs (though the teams look and act surprisingly macho). Going into the half, Rhode Island leads 75-30. In the locker room, Plymouth Rock gets a pep talk, while the Rhode Island team is stuffed with billiard balls. For some reason, the Rocks get penalized for laying live chicks while there's no penalty for the billiard balls. Meanwhile, a Plymouth Rock benchwarmer who's been pestering the coach all through the picture gets sent in and single-handedly wins the game, 100-99, at the last second.

Quaintly amusing

Merrie Melodies short, directed by Friz Freleng, about the students at a bird college. We see them dancing, singing, and having fun the night before a big game. Then we see the game itself, which looks like it will be football but turns out to be egg-laying. Funny and mildly gross. The animation is decent but nothing special, even for its time. The music is upbeat. It's all light and fluffy and silly. Many viewers will find it corny I'm sure. There's something to be said for the idea of the birds playing a game that involves egg-laying but beyond that there isn't a lot to work with here. Harmless enough but doubtful anyone will be impressed by it.
