Gandy Goose leads a baseball team of mostly roosters and one goat against a team of pigs in this very amusing Terrytoon.

Co-directors Mannie Davis and Connie Rasinski have turned in a nice cartoon, with nicely timed and expected gags. That sort of detail was a given at Paul Terry's studio. He had been making cartoons for two dozen years at this point. Mostly the problem with a certain amount of stodginess and lack of character. Gandy Goose, who had been introduced in 1938, was turning into decent, if not great lead comedian. Here, given things to do, he does them well.

As for the stodginess, musical director Philip Scheib had done a fine job of turning that into charm. He does this by choosing 19th century songs to use in his musical cues.
