Two farmers' kids trying to rid their corn crops of crows buy a scarecrow from a strange man who is using his wares in a plot to bring the world to an end.
- The original ending: During the scarecrow vendor's monologue about the world ending, Bobby sets fire to the scarecrow and walks off into the lifeless world.
- The alternate ending: Bobby and the salesman are turned to scarecrows.
- The alternate ending is the one that plays most frequently in reruns. The original ending is mostly seen in international versions and on some cable On Demand programs.
