About Hank the Cowdog...
"It's me again, Hank the Cowdog, Head of Ranch Security." And so begins another wild adventure with Hank and Drover! Returning to Main Street Theater after over a decade and following its HUGE MST tour this season, Hank comes home to MST - Chelsea Market. This time Pete, the cunning little cat, has convinced Hank that his corncob will make him rich. With no need for ranch work, the newly "wealthy" Hank and Drover set off for excitement in canyon country where they visit Madame Moonshine, the owl and fall in love with Missy Coyote. But when trouble arises at the coyote village, Hank and Drover decide there is no better place than home on the ranch. Audiences will have a rip-roaring time with Hank and all his "friends"! Recommended for Pre-Kindergarten - 5th Grade.
