Musical Farmer (film) Mickey Mouse cartoon; released on July 9, 1932. Directed by Wilfred Jackson. Mickey and Pluto chase away crows eating their seeds and then wear the scarecrow to tease Minnie. This leads to a musical extravaganza with all the farmyard animals taking part. One of the hens, who has been unable to lay eggs, lays an enormous egg. Mickey takes a picture but uses too much powder, exploding all the feathers off the hens.
