Mayberry is having an underpass put in and this is requiring some blasting out at the construction site. Hodge brings his goat (Jimmy) into town for the day and, while running errands the goat gets loose and eats some of the dynamite. Everyone becomes afraid of the potential for explosion Jimmy possesses. They seek to find solutions to the quandary. Finally they stumble upon the idea of Barney playing his French Harp and lead the goat out of town. The mayor and Hodge hear an explosion from the construction site and think Andy and Barney were blown up leading the goat away. They break into a eulogy not knowing the duo had returned and were listening in the other room.
