Heckle & Jeckle try to steal some logs from Big Pierre's lumberyard to build their own log cabin. The big burly French dog is not too thrilled at having his lumber being pilfered by the two magpies and tries his best to stop them. In the end, Big Pierre fails and the two magpies get their wood to build their own log cabin.
Heckle and Jeckle, the talking magpies, are in need of upgraded-housing and decide to help themselves to the logs and lumber laying unused in Big Pierre's lumber yard. Big Pierre thinks this a bit high-handed on the part of the two birds, and his objections leads to several battles and mêlées, which leads to a big explosion which causes the logs to fall and form a house. But the house collapses, and Heckle and Jeckle shrug it off and depart the premises.
