Click, Clack, Moo Cows That Type Synopsis

Farmer Brown has a big problem. His cows found an old typewriter in the barn and all day long Farmer Brown hears click, clack, moo. He doesn’t understand what is happening until he relieves a letter demanding electric blankets to keep them warm at night.

When Farmer Brown refuses their demands, the cows leave another note to say they are going on strike. “Sorry. We’re closed. No milk today.” In the next letter, the cows raise their demands and request electric blankets for hens. The farmer again refuses and the hens refuse to lay eggs.

Farmer Brown cannot run his farm without milk and eggs, so he sends a letter. He tells the cows and hens they don’t need electric blankets and they should do their job. After an emergency meeting, the cows reach out with a compromise, they will return the typewriter if they get electric blankets. Duck, a neutral party, delivers the letter.

Farmer Brown agrees to the compromise and leaves the electric blankets. He waits for the duck to return the typewriter but instead gets a letter demanding a diving board for the duck pond.
