With the help of a smooth talking tomcat, a family of Parisian felines set to inherit a fortune from their owner try to make it back home after a jealous butler kidnaps them and leaves them in the country.
Edmund is a human boy whose favorite story of Chanticleer, a crow whose singing makes the sun rise every morning until the Grand Duke of Owls, whose kind despises the bright sun makes him look like a fraud. With Chanticleer driven from his farm, the owls put it under a spell of perpetual darkness and rain. As Edmund's own farm floods, he calls to Chanticleer, only to summon the Duke himself who transforms him into a kitten to devour him. Rescued by Chanticleer's former friends Patou the hound, Snipes the magpie and Peepers the mouse, they go on an adventure to the city where the crow had gone and became a great singing rock star!

The film originally included more darker elements, a famous one being a deleted sequence from the kitchen scene. In this sequence the Duke bakes a live baby skunk in a pie. Oddly enough the reason this was cut wasn't because of the content but because Dun Bluth received a note from the preview audience that most cases of child abuse happen in the kitchen, and involve baking instruments.
