"Heroes, Villains and Cows" was a deleted song from Home on the Range sung by the Mariachi Butterflies, who were to serve as narrators before being scrapped. It was originally going to be the opening, but You Ain't Home on the Range was chosen at the last minute. The song also uses live-action footage from various silent era westerns with the butterflies animated over them.
