That night, Freddy tries to do an act with Mr. Jinks, but then Mr. Jinks comes to life and starts making personal insults towards Freddy's friends and Freddy gets blamed. Freddy tries to tell his friends that he's innocent, but they think he's insane. First, Mr. Jinks tries to drop an anvil on Otis' head, then he puts cement in Pig's mud jacuzzi.

The animals then decide to ban Freddy from the barnyard forever, but Mr. Jinks shows up and reveals Freddy was telling the truth. He traps the animals underneath a copper mesh net to electrocute them. Luckily, Freddy rescues them and they apologize for not believing him. Just when they can burn Mr. Jinks, it is revealed they the termites from the tree the dummy was made from was controlling Mr. Jinks all along and they vowed vengeance when the animals destroyed it.
