The Scarecrow is a 2000 American animated fantasy film written and directed by Brian Nissen and Richard Rich, who had both previously collaborated on The Swan Princess in 1994.


In the time of the Pilgrims, a scarecrow, who is brought to life and can look like a human being as long as he wears a feather in his cap, endeavors—with the help of an enchanted broomstick and a wisecracking mouse—to rescue a sweet, noble girl and three other orphans from an evil villain.


  • Shawn Hoffman as The Scarecrow/Feathertop
  • Belinda Montgomery as Polly
  • Ray Porter as Grisham
  • Corey Feldman as Max
  • Paul Masonson as Cheswick
  • Prince Davidson as Cooper


The Scarecrow has no approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes, but currently has a Want-To-See score of 33%.


Even though it takes place during the Pilgrim years, the song/dance sound more modern.
