When Beany sells the family cow for some Mexican Jumping Beans, his mother upbraids him and tosses them out of the window. They grow into a giant beanstalk which carries Beany up to a giant cat's castle in the clouds. Beany steals the Hen that lays Golden Eggs and is chased by the giant. The film ends when he tells the director he won't fight the cat.
