Before Back at the Barnyard aired as a regular TV series, Nickelodeon previewed the series with four shorts during regular programming leading up to the show's premiere on September 27th, 2007.

I'm a Loopy Nut Job


Otis and Pip play a prank on Mrs. Beady by cutting into the audio of her satellite dish and replacing it with their own silly commentary while she's watching a yoga exercise program and later, a cooking show.

Cow in the Road


A family is driving down the road and Otis stands on all fours in the middle of the road. Pip, Freddy, Peck, and Pig distract them and the scared family drives away while everyone gets a good laugh.

Sloshy Sloshy


Snotty Boy is not too happy to be on a field trip with his school class to the Barnyard, so he starts to poke at Bessy's udders. She gets the last laugh on him and squirts milk at him.

Pig in a Bottle


On a relaxing afternoon, Pig is in the mud, and Freddy throws a bottle of barbecue sauce intended for Peck that gets stuck in Pig's butt. Needless to say, Otis, Pip, Freddy and Peck get a good chuckle out of this situation.

A storyboarded version of this, with Kevin James' voice instead of Chris Hardwick used that would have been part of the movie which includes a sight gag using a leather protectant is available at this location:
