A hillbilly sleeps; atop his bald head, flies have constructed a playground. Other flies ski-jump off his nose. A couple is having a picnic when a spider drops in; the boy runs away as the girl fends off the spider. The spider slinks home and reports the news to his wife: "No flies." A fly goes by in an airplane; he picks up a girl fly that is passing by, but when he gets fresh, she slaps him. He throws her out of the plane, and she lands in the spider's web. The spider, elated, starts playing a tune on the web like a guitar. The fly joins in, but when she shows the spider her shoulder, the spider's wife sternly orders him: "No flies."
