The Ballad of Cow and Chicken is the episode of Cow and Chicken and is the part of fifty-second episode first overall. And the last and final episode after the show got canceled in 1999.


This episode starts with Earl and Flem with Teacher as they dressed up in a cowboy style attire while they play instruments to an disinterested and unamused crowd. Teacher begins to sing a ballad. At the introduction of the ballad, Cow and chicken are at the front lawn of their house while the Red Guy is dressed up as a phony detective scammer named officer Mike Heiney. As Red Guy puts his hand in his coat, Cow and chicken thinks it’s a gun, and they go on Cow’s bike as they get away from him. Red Guy chases him on his buttocks. As the ballad continues, they go to a train as Red Guy falls into a waterfall. Cow and Chicken gets through the adventure as they run into a boxer dog, and a sheep that beat up the Red Guy, (probably because they knew that he’s bad, and wanted to get rid of Cow and chicken ). As they head to the train, the siblings goes to a farm. Chicken goes into a hen house, and sits by the female hens, until an angry rooster chases Chicken around in the woods. Flem interrupts Teacher because he doesn’t like where this is going with Chicken getting chased by a rooster. Teacher gets irritated by him, and yells at him to keep playing. As the crowd leaves in annoyance, Red Guy follows Cow into the horse stables. Suddenly, Red Guy notices Cow by calling her funny looking. Then an old farmer gets offended by punching him in the face, flying across in the air while Chicken is there for Cow. The farmer’s wife beats Red Guy in the head with a rolling pin. Cow and Chicken run for their lives again. Then they go into the city where Red Guy follows them with a bear trap, but accidentally hits the bear on the foot. The bear attacks Red Guy, and throws him on the ground. Red Guy chased the siblings once more by cornering them into a corner. Earl asks about what’s gonna happened with Cow and Chicken. Teacher gets very annoyed by him, and says it’s a song for entertainment as she insults him. Flem and Earl play the instruments again. Chicken defensively asks Red Guy for the chasing. Red Guy says he was going to give Cow’s toy, Krabs the warthog because she drop it, but she had it for the entire time. Red Guy laughs and rolls around with crabs crawling on him. Cow and Chicken are both weirded out and confused at the same time as they exchanged glances at each other. Teacher ends the song as she yells at the empty chairs in the theater. Red Guy applauded for the song as the crabs pinched on him again.
