It is a very loose adaptation of ''Le Roman de Renart'', an anthology of satirical tales written in the French Middle Ages. The original stories were about a fox called Renart outwitting other animals as they try to chase food. Those tales were so popular that [[AKindOfOne it even replaced in French vocabulary "goupil" with "renard" (French for fox)]].

* OffModel: The characters will sometimes look very weird for a second or two, such as Renart showing a very cartoony face when in shock or Ysengrin being suddenly twice as large as Renart when standing next to him.
** The Fil-à-Film VHS releases had mostly '''AWFUL''' cover art, obviously done by some crony who used a screen-still as reference to clumsily reproduce something that looks like a bad child tracing (and Fil-à-Film had a lot of awful cover art to offer!).
* PaperThinDisguise: Some of Renart's disguises amount to that: he easily impersonates General Bigeard by simply tucking his ears in a cap and putting a big band-aid on his snout!
