The Cowardly Lion and the Hungry Tiger have grown bored with their guard duty at Ozma's throne in the Royal Palace of the Emerald City. The Lion wants to attack a man and make "chop suey of him." The Tiger longs, at last, to satisfy his hunger for a fat baby. The two big cats prowl the emerald streets with mayhem in mind.
Neither cat, however, can bring himself to fulfill his darker desires. The two end up saving a lost child and returning him to his mother.
