Farmer Bosko has a (literally) high old time singing and dancing with the barnyard animals; baby ducks cavort in unison (taking time out for a potty break), an improvised horse-hair fiddle scratches out a lively tune, and so on. But the fun really begins when a bottle of liquor gets passed around, resulting in a drunken rendition from a quartet of pigs and innumerable shouts of "Whoopee!" Most of the music in this cartoon is adapted from the Oscar Hammerstein operetta Song of the Flame, filmed by Warner Bros. in 1930. The film's most outrageous gag, involving a regurgitated corncob, is often cut for television.
