While Ben is eager to teach his son a sense of responsibility, Otis is all about having a good time. Sometimes that results in rude comments as well as irresponsible behavior such as driving in a stolen car with open bottles of milk that mimic the behavior of humans driving under the influence of alcohol. But not everything is fun and games. When the farmer inadvertently comes across the festivities, he is repeatedly kicked in the head while the animals decide how to cover their tracks. After coyotes attack the creatures on the farm, the untimely death of one of the animals causes a showdown in the junkyard that includes some scary and tense moments for young viewers. The brief discussion and portrayal of pregnancy and childbirth are also included.
