The plot generally revolves around Otis, a bull and his barnyard friends. Otis wants to goof around, but has to be responsible and protect the inhabitants of the farm. He and his friends Pip, a mouse, Pig (a pig), Peck (a rooster), Freddy, a ferret, Abby, a cow, Duke (a dog) and Bessy (a cow) have many crazy adventures, while at the same time help Otis protect the farm.

Otis and his friends have to overtake many obstacles like Mrs. Beady trying to prove that animals can talk, and goals like to distract the farmer, so they can party every week. Frequently, the gang's fun is interrupted by Mrs. Beady, a woman obsessed with showing the world that the animals can walk and talk so they can "be paraded around the world in cages like the freaks you are!" The gang's other nemesis is Snotty Boy, Mrs. Beady's obese teen nephew who enjoys torturing the animals. The animals dress up like people when out in public, though nobody ever notices except Mrs. Beady.
