8min · Family, Animation, Short · 25 May 1936
Quitting time for a scarecrow. He gets home, and his little boy scares him. To the title song, he teaches his son the basics of scare-crowing. Bedtime for junior; he prays to be a big scarecrow, just like his daddy. The next morning he sneaks out before anyone else is up and practices scaring a rooster, a squirrel, and a rabbit. He takes up his father's place, but the crows are not impressed; in fact, the crow goes on the attack. Junior finally thinks he's found a pose that works, but in fact Dad's come up behind him. Of course, in the telling, he's much more heroic...
