This is a heart-warming story about rural life in the early 1900s. Jeremiah (Bobby Driscoll) lives with his grandmother Grammy Kincaid (Beulah Bondi) and raises his beloved lamb, Danny, on the family farm. Sometimes, Danny can cause problems, and Grammy wants Jeremiah to get rid of Danny. Uncle Hiram (Burl Ives) encourages Jeremiah to enter Danny in the county fair competition, and Jeremiah goes along with the idea. Problems unfold when Danny runs away one rainy night, and Jeremiah promises the Lord that if Danny returns, he will not enter him in the fair. But, Danny returns and does enter the fair because Granny had promised the Lord that if Danny returned, she would support his entry. Good Disney fare.
