Lum has organized a safari, and given jobs to Abner and Cedric. Today we find them suffering hardships as they camp just outside of town. Lum is having the time of his life, but Abner complains at his ordeal. Can’t they move their tent so they could be closer to the fishing hole?
While Lum and Abner sit tight, Cedric is the beater, and is out beating the bushes to see if he can turn up the lion. Well, he’s actually out scaring up some lunch, since he doesn’t like Lum’s idea of roughing it either.
Abner is a little confused over the phrase, beating the bushes, but returns to complaining. When Cedric shows up, word of a sighting of Irving the lion promises to bring a quick end to Lum’s safari. Bravery time… maybe.
