In Merry ole England, we find the Sheriff of Rottingham posting a wanted poster with a dagger as a makeshift hammer and says He'll offer 50 gold pieces for information leading to the capture of Jerry Hood and his band of Merry Meeces. While the Sheriff is talking to the village mice about Jerry's dastardly deeds, including being merry in public places, doing nice things for poor people, and robbing in a no-robbing zone. Jerry's band shows up and steals the 50 pieces of gold reward. The Sheriff is then insulted by Jerry a second time, first being the theft of gold, when Jerry shots an arrow with a poster attached showing a caricature of "Stinky the Sheriff" infuriating the sheriff after being a victim of character assassination.
The next scene shifts to Sherwood Forest where we are introduced to Mouse Scarlet, Friar Mouse, Little Louie, and lastly Mouse Marian the one who owns Jerry's heart, but Jerry doesn't know it. Jerry then heads to practice his bow and arrow skills which are unparalleled. The Sheriff then sends Sir Tom to rid the forest of Jerry Hood and his band of thieves. However, Tom is sent back running as a flurry of arrows descend on him followed by another volley at the seated Sheriff. This annoys the Sheriff and goes to the top of castle walls dressed in full plate armor as He taunts Jerry and his men as arrows bounce off is armor. However, Jerry's arrow hits the sheriff's weak point, His rear end, sending him flying into the air. Now the Sheriff is really vexed so he places Tom on a catapult with an order to infiltrate the forest and capture Jerry.

The Sheriff then climbs up to the tower where Sir Thomas is and accepts Tom's resignation as the Sheriff is about to drop Tom into the moat where the Alligators are readying to eat Him whole.
