Cumulative rating:
(1 rating submitted)


Sheep herder Scrappy invites many sheep to a dance party. The black sheep is rejected by the others and leaves. While alone, a tiny white lamb approaches the sheep, who kicks the lamb. A ram is not amused and attacks the black sheep. Finally the sheep knocks the lamb into the ground, but Scrappy arrives and banishes the black sheep from the pen. The sheep lingers before leaving, but not before kicking Scrappy in the tush! Out on the prairie, a dairy cow laughs at the depressed sheep, who throws a log at it! The sheep are still not impressed, and at this point the black sheep snaps and throws rocks and logs at both Scrappy and the herd of sheep! All but two of the white sheep take refuge in a barn, leaving the tiny lamb without shelter. The black sheep chases the lamb while the white sheep baa in the barn. Scrappy breaks in but is quickly thrown out. The ruckus dies out and the white sheep escape from the barn sans wool, and the black sheep emerges triumphant!
