The Scarecrows appeared in the book and TV episode The Scarecrow Walks at Midnight. They are inanimate scarecrows brought to life by the main villain of the book so that he can take over the farm.
Three Scarecrows are among the many monsters that are released by Slappy. They are taller than the other monsters just like the Punpkinhead. Around the end of the movie when all the monsters are sucked back into the book, one of the Scarecrows said "No" as he is getting sucked in after losing his grip on a nearby tree.
