It is Sunday and black families are getting ready for church. There are mammies who put shoeshine on their son's heads, and pappies who polish their head to be all shiny and new. On the way to church, a lady who has twin sons uses a brassier as a baby bonnet for them. Then a lady who is ready to go finds that her husband Nicodemus is busy shootin' craps. She pulls him by the ear and heads for church, but Nicodemus sneaks out and finds a chicken-yard. He chases a chicken and gets hit on the head by a fence. He finds himself in the devil's court.

One of the "Censored 11" banned from T.V. syndication by United Artists in 1968 (then the owners of the Looney Tunes film library) for alleged racism. Ted Turner
continued the ban when he was hired and stated that these films will not be re-issued and will not be put on Home Video. These cartoons will probably never air on television again, and only non-Warner Bros. licensed public domain video tapes will probably ever have these cartoons on them. See more
