Having become an oil millionaire, diminutive Native American Moe Hican redecorates the interior of his huge mansion to resemble a forest, complete with rippling stream running under the grand piano. Every morning, Moe and his long-suffering butler set out with bow and arrow to hunt such wild game as the elusive midget moose (full-sized head, teeny-tiny body). Fed up with Moe's eccentricities--and tired of getting stray arrows in his backside--the butler finally quits, whereupon Moe goes hunting alone, with the usual slapstick consequences. Though hardly what one would call Politically Correct, The Oily American is undeniably funny.
