Johnny Appleseed, the seed spreading man with a pot on his head, is the key figure in this episode of Shelley Duvall's Tall Tales and Legends. A star-studded cast, including Rob Reiner, Molly Ringwald and Martin Short bring this beloved story to life. Johnny (Martin Short), is a bit different - he has no friends, refuses to eat indoors and obsesses over apples. Accused of being a bum and a full-grown nut for rejecting a Harvard education, Johnny, at the tender age of 18, sets out to find his fortune. One night Mother Nature (Anne Jackson) visits Johnny in a dream and tells him of her woes. She has a shortage of apples and needs him to travel the country planting apple orchards. And so begins this classic American folktale. Johnny's quest takes him on an adventure that has rooted its way into history and even today, stands as a symbol of hope for those who dare to dream.
