With the help of the sheriff's horse, who wants to be a hero, the cows rescue the cattle, but learn that the rustler has gone to buy their farm at the bank's auction.

The review of this Movie prepared by Brandon Swenson

In this enjoyable hand-drawn animated film from Disney, we see something that isn't normally tackled from them. Home on the Range is a musical about cows. That's right, and they are voiced by Roseanne Barr, Judi Dench, and Jennifer Tilly. When a small dairy cow farm must pay $750 or be auctioned off, the cows decide to catch the cattle stealer, Alemeda Slim and collect the reward. Slim meanwhile uses hypnotic yodeling to catch the cows, but he is unable to hypnotise the charming Grace. The cows have to watch because the famous bounty hunter, Rico and his horse, Buck are also out to catch Slim. Although this isn't Disney's best, it's a cute little film with wonderful songs by Alan Menken, and wonderful voices by the entire cast, especially Roseanne.
