The witty tale of a determined young lady and her untameable hairdo! Fanny B. Kranny loves her long, frizzy hair, even though it's always getting her into trouble. It ties itself in knots on the buttons of her dress and gets caught in the refrigerator door. Her parents want her to get it cut so it's nice and neat like her smug sister Bertha's, but Franny refuses. However, when they insist that she gets it put up for a family reunion, Franny has to do as she's told. But then a brown bird flies down and settles in her posh new hairdo on the way home from the hairdresser's, and adds a whole new dimension to Franny's wild hair!
