Along with his friends — Jimmy Skunk, Sammy Jay, Old Mr. Toad, Johnny Chuck, and others, he sets out to discover a new and more appealing name. Meanwhile, Granny Fox is so hungry for barbecued rabbit, she sends Reddy Fox to capture Peter. Reddy makes a variety of plans to trap Peter, but he is clearly outfoxed by the rabbit.
