Storyboard Text

  • Out in the broad plains of Arizona
  • *snort*
  • I'll get you, you wild bronco!
  • In the East - the city, where Jim lived with his Uncle Charles 
  • Jim, you've put on a good show, but it's gotten a little boring.
  • Outside the Butcher Shop
  • Is ye interested in rid'in me young beast to Plympton's patures?
  • Buy one chicken, get the next one for half the price!
  • There was once a young cowboy named Jim, who lived on the broad plains of Arizona. He had learned from his father how to lasso just about anything, with perfect precision.
  • In the country, where Jim's wild spirits broke forth into wild jubilation
  • YEE HAW!
  • When Jim was twelve years old, he decided to go live with his Uncle Charles in the East. He took his lasso with him, for he wanted to show off what a real cowboy could do. At first, many were astonished by Jim's tricks, but soon, they grew tired of watching the same thing over, and over again. Even Jim decided this wasn't a good career.
  • Jim's lasso caught onto something invisible
  • Here, let go! Let go, I say! Can't you see what you've done?
  • One day, the butcher asked Jim to ride one of his horses into the country. After his recent ordeals with the children, Jim had begun to think that these city people didn't like true cowboys. Yet the butcher was presenting a wonderful opportunity to him, and he agreed heartily to the butcher's request.
  • Suddenly, an old man appeared in front of Jim
  • I said, "let me go"!
  • Jim rode peacefully enough through the city streets, but as he reached the countryside, his wild spirits broke free, and as he urged the butcher's horse into a gallop, he began to whoop to his heart's content. He was so excited, he even began to swing his lasso around at imaginary cattle in true cowboy fashion.
  • Neigh!
  • Suddenly, the loop of Jim's lasso caught upon something, and and rested about three feet off the ground. But the lasso was hovering over...nothing... So he attempted a trick that his father had taught him where he made the butcher's horse run in circles around where the lasso had caught on something.
  • Soon the butcher's horse began to pull away and snort with fear, so Jim dismounted and led the horse to the place where the lasso had caught onto something. Suddenly, when Jim was three feet away from his 'destination', an old man snapped into view.
