Minnie and Moo are cows, best friends, and the drollest duo to come along since Frog and Toad. "We could do that," says Moo to Minnie, as they watch the farmer quit work and hang his hat on a nail. "Do what?" Minnie asks. "Drive that tractor," says Moo, ever the dreamer. "I have been thinking. What does the farmer have that we do not?" "Hands and feet," says Minnie, ever practical.

"No," says Moo. "Boots and a hat." And buoyed by that undeniable logic, the two set off on a drive that they believe takes them to the moon. Other farm animals are involved—all with hilarious consequences.

At the farmer’s house they, in their party togs, are mistaken for Opal and Ruby, the farmer’s twin sisters from California. "You gals sure know how to hoof it!" says one of their human dance partners. But when hamburgers are served, Moo and Minnie are struck suddenly by their own connection to beef. "We could be next on the grill,," says Minnie. "Run for it!"
