In Creepy Carrots! we meet Jasper Rabbit who loves carrots, especially from Crackenhopper Field. In fact, he gets them from there quite often. Then, one day those carrots start to plague him. They are everywhere- in his shower, in his bedroom, lurking on the hill as he walks. Or are they? Well, Jasper Rabbit has a plan to keep those carrots away from him.
