Storyline

An insomniac fox residing in a forest needs duck down for his pillow in order to be comfortable enough in his bed to fall asleep, and to this purpose he pursues a wily yellow duck. The fox uses a decoy and duck call, and is blasted by hunters' rifles. He builds a series of wooden extensions from a tree branch in an effort to reach the airborne duck, but the duck drops a feather onto the fox's head, and the extensions beneath the fox collapse, with the fox plunging mortally to ground. His spirit, while ascending to Heaven, encounters and chases the duck. Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

Reasonably enjoyable, somewhat predictable cartoon
9 November 2000 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

There's nothing really special or unique about this cartoon, save the fact that the fox wants the duck's down for his pillow instead of duck for dinner (I wonder, if pork is the other white meat, is duck the other dark meat? But I digress.). The opening sight gag with the fox's pillow is excellent, the rest amusing, if better done in other cartoons. Still a most enjoyable cartoon and well worth seeing.
