The great appeal of this film is watching the beaver at work, busily and cheerfully demonstrating the characteristics for which it is famous. Sometimes, however, the beaver's industry runs counter to the plancs of people. When the beaver's dam floods their father's hayfield, two boys devise a plan to save the beaver from their father's displeasure.
