Bobby is stumped when he tries to write a paper for his History 101 class on ‘The Discovery of America,” but he gets a little help when he calls in to a radio station and is pulled back in time with the mythic Coyote of Native American lore. Bobby learns the hilarious tales of the Coyote and the Buffalo Skull, Christopher Columbus and his doo-wop trio (Nina, Pinta, and Santa Maria), and reflects on his crazy vacation to Mount Rushmore. But is it enough to get his paper done in time?
