In The Snowman and the Scarecrow, young Joe's grandfather dies as they're making their traditional Christmas snowman. (Always a festive downer when that happens.) As a way of coping, the boy searches for the missing snowman; it's a small town, how far could he have got? (Unbeknownst to Joe, the snowman was destroyed by insensitive local teens.) Before long, Joe runs into an out-of-town drifter who promises to help ... but does the old vagrant have ulterior motives?
