It's a bad day out in the badlands, as Sheriff Abner and Deputy
Ewalt despair over their boredom and lack of people to hang. So they advertise for some villians to hang, and wind up with
outlaws only slightly less stupid than they are, Three-fingered Hoek and Stupis the Kid. They send the two hapless desperados
out to steal Mr. Horse. This gives them a pretext to break out the ropes for a good old fashioned necktie party and hootenanny.
Cuts made by Nick-
Before airing Nickelodeon cut the last line of the song:
Abner saying "Bring the kids next time!"
A line that never made into the finished cartoon,
the line where Ren makes his gallows confession to Stimpy that "While you were asleep, I polished my boots with your tongue,"
originally was a reference to Ren soothing his saddle sores with Stimpy's tongue. Needless to say Nickelodeon story editors
had conniptions over that one. This edit is fix on the Spike TV verson.
