Yorick, a hapless skeleton, has just been dug up after a few hundred years of sleep. Bones, a curious stray dog, did the digging. Not realizing that he is a skeleton - or that he's no longer in the Elizabethan era - Yorick tries to make new friends. Much to his annoyance, Bones has quite literally latched onto him, excited to have a tasty leg bone to chew. But when Yorick's friendly overtures scare all the villagers away, it is Bones who remains by his side, and Yorick finally realizes that the friend he truly sought was attached at the hip - so to speak - all along.
