Granny and Tweety are riding through the desert in their wagon, to the tune of Oh! Susanna, when they are ambushed by Indians (who bear remarkable resemblance to Sylvester). They are forced to hole up in a fort, where Granny begins to shoot them down while Tweety counts (Ten Little Indians). On the tenth, one nearly takes Tweety, but is shot down just in time.
More attempts include an archer and a battering ram, both foiled. One archer almost drags Tweety out again ("Granny! Help! A Mohican got me!") but Granny surprises him with a bomb instead. The cats' attempts continue like this, all of them backfiring or being foiled; usually the cats are blown up or shot. In one instance, the chief orders the actual Sylvester to sneak into the fort; Sylvester emerges later with the top of his head having been scalped off by Granny.
Finally, Granny and Tweety disguise themselves as a fellow Indian, and lead the cats into the powder house. When one asks for a match, they kindly oblige, and the powder house explodes, causing all the cats to erupt into the sky and then fall. "Oh my goodness!" Tweety comments, "It's raining putty tats!"
