In the Wild West countryside sits a charming farm called OinkADoodleMoo, with a black and white farmhouse and a big, red barn. Three crazy critters live in the barn: a pig (Oink), a chicken (Doodle), and a speckled cow (Moo). One day, a dark shadow is cast across the land when a hungry grizzly bear shows up, looking for food. What will become of the barnyard friends? How will they avoid ending up a bear snack? Only the music will save them, with the help of one big cowboy boot!
