After Farmer Rabbit has planted his corn and it begins to grow, he realizes that the crows are eating his plants. He decides to put a scarecrow out in the corn patch to scare the birds away. When this fails, he brings out another scarecrow, a female, to help keep the birds away. When the crops have been harvested, Farmer Rabbit puts the two scarecrows into his barn for the winter. There, they meet a magical mouse who brings them to life. They dance and sing and fall in love. When the winter is over and Farmer Rabbit returns to the barn to return them to his corn patch again, he is surprised to find that a new baby scarecrow has been added to his family.
