Host Michael Moore begins the first segment of the program by noting that while violent crime has gone down in recent years, corporate crime has gone up. To reverse this phenomenon, he introduces Crackers, the corporate crime-fighting chicken. Crackers directs his crime fighting effort against Disney because of accusations of unfair labor practices. He travels to Disney World to have a talk with Mickey Mouse, feeling that the two old friends can patch up the misunderstanding. While visiting the Magic Kingdom, however, Crackers is detained by security. When he finally does talk to giant mouse who resembles Mickey, Crackers throws him out of the car for suggesting they start a new company and use sweatshop labor. In the second segment, Moore travels to R.J. Reynolds and Philip Morris with the "Voice Box Choir," a group of singers who have lost their voices due to cancer. The group sings carols through their voice boxes at each location until they are asked to leave.
