Freddy before becoming a Cowboy Freddy the Cowboy!


Freddy rescues Cy the horse from mean Mr. Flint, buying the horse with money kept in the First Animal Bank of Centerboro. After Mr. Flint sees the bank, the animals are sure he plans to rob it. Can they keep the bank safe from Mr. Flint and his henchmen? The Horrible Ten help out! Here are pictures of Freddy before and after becoming a cowboy. And we can't forget his cowboy song!


"When the moon rides high on the pine tree
branch
Then Two-Gun Freddy of the Lone Pig Ranch
(Oh, hi, yi, yippy-yippy-yip!)
He takes his guitar, and he tightens up the
strings
And he jumps in the saddle, and this is what
he sings:

Oh, hi, yi, yippy-yippy-yings!
Oh, hi, yi, yippy-yippy-yap, yop, yowp!
Oh, hi, yi, yippy-yippy-yings!

"Oh, the wild wind moans o'er the lone prai-ree
But Two-Gun Freddy, oh, louder moans he;
(Sing, hi, yi, yippy-yippy-yip!)
He shouts this song till the whole sky rings,
As he sits in the saddle and twangles on the
strings:

Oh, hi, yi, yippy-yippy-yings!
Oh, hi, yi, yippy-yippy-yap, yop, yowp!
Oh, hi, yi, yippy-yippy-yings!
