Bobo the Elephant, making his first appearance since Hobo Bobo, also directed by McKimson, is baseball team mascot for the lean and meek Sweetwater Shnooks, all of whom are rendered unconscious by their opponents, the husky and brutal Greenville Goons. Just as a victory by the Goons seems nearly inevitable, Bobo singlehandedly rallies his team back for a win in the bottom of the ninth inning.
Robert McKimson directed the animated cartoon from a story (lifted in part from the Friz Freleng/Michael Maltese 1946 opus Baseball Bugs) by Sid Marcus and animator Ben Washam. Animation was done from Robert Givens' layout by Charles McKimson, Herman Cohen, Rob Scribner and Phil DeLuca with backgrounds by Richard H. Thomas and music by Carl Stalling. Voices were provided by Mel Blanc and an uncredited Robert C. Bruce as a play-by-play announcer.
- A local TV station in New York City (WNEW) made a strange edit in this cartoon (though whether that was a censorship cut or an audio glitch that couldn't be fixed is unknown): In the scene of the umpire and the Goons' catcher arguing over whether or not one of the players on the Sweetwater Shnooks team is safe or out, the punchline of the Goons' team catcher clobbering the Sweetwater Shnooks player on the head with his bat to prove that the player is out was left in, but the umpire's line: "Yeesh! Now he's out!" was muted .
