On the lam from the circus, a lion, a lion tamer, a circus mouse and a stinkbug find a small deserted cottage to make their home. The industrious stinkbug sews lace curtains for the windows and chisels a plaque that reads "Home Sweet Home." His lazy companions, on the other hand, won't even budge from bed to switch the boring old weather station on the television! It isn't long before the lazy trio starts to take advantage of the stinkbug's boundless energies. However, they soon learn that it's unwise to push a stinkbug too far.
