Back Roads, Country Toads
Hank and Buckeroo are a couple of country toads. They hang out by the country general store, and one day they overhear some men at the store are planning on going fly fishing. Flies? Hank and Buckeroo can’t think of anything tastier. They jump into a picnic basket in the fishermen’s truck and go along for the ride. At the lake, they meet Emmitt, a raccoon. And it’s a good thing because Emmitt keeps the two from catching the fake fishing flies with their tongues. Emmitt steals a fish, and that gives Hank an idea that will allow Hank and Buckeroo the best day of their lives so far.
