With fun songs and lively choreography, CLICK, CLACK, MOO teaches the importance of friendship and compromise.
Farmer Brown has an extraordinary problem: his cows like to type. He discovers this fact after taking away his granddaughter Jenny's laptop computer. Soon, the cows begin using the computer to write him letters demanding blankets for the animals in the cold barn. When Farmer Brown dismisses the complaints as ridiculous, the cows soon strike. The chickens join them in solidarity. Will Farmer Brown compromise? What will happen if he doesn't?
