Storyline

Edmund is a boy whose favorite story of Chanticleer, a rooster 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 rooster had gone and became a great singing rock star!

Trivia

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.

Goofs

It's established that Chanticleer's crowing causes the sun to rise every day. But, early on in the movie, the sun rises without Chanticleer's crowing. And after he leaves shamed, it stays dark and begins to rain eternally. Later the sun rises again after Chanticleer returns to crow, with no explanation as to why the plot seemingly contradicts itself. See more »

Quotes

Pinky: [a phone conversation] Yeah? Oh, howdy, boss. How are you? Uh-huh. Huh? You say a cat, a dog, a bird and a mouse? What is this? Some kind of joke, huh?
Grand Duke: [talking on the phone] Oh, well, I don't think it's funny, Pinky. They want to bring Chanticleer back to the farm. You don't want that, he makes you lots of money; I don't want that, he makes me miserable
Pinky: Right, boss, and what should I do about it?
Grand Duke: Your chicken thinks they don't want him on the farm. Well, that's good. All you have to do is make ...

This is an excellent movie for kids
10 December 2010 | by (FLORIDA) – See all my reviews

This is a great cartoon movie. My boys watched it over and over. It is colorful with great animation. it has a good story line that is easy for kids to follow. I truly enjoyed this movie. All the kids I showed it to enjoyed it. I am currently trying to get my hands on a copy for my grandchildren because I know they will love it too. The voices are clear and easy to understand and the music keeps the kids attention. This film ranks right up there with "Finding Nemo" and "101 Dalmations" in my opinion. There is funny stuff, serious stuff and sad stuff. The story teaches a good lesson in a positive way. I recommend getting this movie if you can find it.
