The story revolves around the sale of tickets for the annual sweepstakes in Bedrock. Fred buys the last ticket and decides, with the help of his good conscience, to split it with Barney. Of course, they also decide to keep the ticket a secret from Betty and Wilma so that the girls don't go off on a pre-winning shopping spree with monies not yet won. Fred and Barney hide their ticket in an old coat. Betty and Wilma, however, have decided to purchase their own ticket this year, and they plan to keep the purchase a secret from Fred and Barney, hiding theirs in a coffeepot. The fun comes in the cat-and-mouse (or, in this case, saber-tooth tiger-and-mouse) game of hiding the tickets from one another and keeping the secret. Fred has another battle of conscience (in the form of the classic tiny devil and angel incarnations of Fred himself); this time, the bad conscience wins out, talking Fred into sneaking over to steal back his ticket from Barney in the middle of the night. Much fun comes from the interplay between Fred and the consciences throughout the show. Ultimately, there is a mix-up with the tickets, and Fred ends up with the winning ticket, which turns out to be Wilma's and Betty's ticket, and the girls go out on their annual shopping spree (this may be the first use of the girls' call to battle, "CHARGE IT!"), followed close behind by the boys, whose bad consciences talk them into cashing in on Wilma and Betty's winnings before the girls spend it all on themselves.
