In this version, Chanticleer is an [[NoCelebritiesWereHarmed affectionate caricature of Elvis Presley]]. After learning his singing doesn't have any effect on the weather, he runs away to seek his fortune as a rich rock star. Wouldn't you know it, Chanticleer ''does'' control the weather, so his friends run after him to try and convince him to come home and save the farm from flooding. [[note]]It wasn't necessarily the ''WEATHER'' Chanticleer controlled, but rather [[spoiler:the sunrise. Without his crowing every morning, the sun would never rise.]][[/note]] Fortunately, [[CelebrityIsOverrated Chanticleer is disillusioned with his fame and fortune and fandom]], and agrees to return to the farm and save the day--unless his manager Pinky the fox (secretly in league with the [[BigBad Grand Duke]], an evil wizard owl who hates the sun and wants it to rain forever) has anything to say about it.

* InformedFlaw: Edmund is supposedly a "scardy cat," yet throughout the film he's never shown letting his fear get the best of him, if he's ever shown to be afraid at all. Yet, [[spoiler: Edmund's JourneyToTheCenterOfTheMind is depicted as him finally overcoming his FatalFlaw of fear... even though he never let his fear control him before.]]



* JourneyToTheCenterOfTheMind: Edmund [[spoiler:during Peepers' DisneyDeath]].



* LightIsGood / DarkIsEvil

* LightIsGood / DarkIsEvilDarkIsEvil: Contrary to Don Bluth's [[DarkIsNotEvil usual M.O.]]


Added DiffLines:

* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: The entire farm's reaction when they realize, oh shit, Chanticleer's crowing really ''does'' bring up the son, and by laughing him off the farm they royally fucked themselves.


Added DiffLines:

* SomewhereAnOrnithologistIsCrying: Owls hate the rain as much as any barn animal. Among other reasons, they are ''not'' aquatic birds; their feathers get soaked, rendering them incapable of flight, like most birds of prey. They also prefer things dark and ''dry,'' so the slightest snap of a twig or crunch of leaves can alert their fantastic hearing to far-away prey.
* SpeechImpediment: Averted with Peepers. She has a lisp, but it doesn't prevent her from being understood, nor from being the generally smartest, bravest, and most competent member of the group. She isn't even shamed when Snipes tries to make fun of her for it, as she considers her lisp something that makes her more special, not less. [[ElmuhFuddSyndwome Edmund? Not so much...]]


Added DiffLines:

* StayInTheKitchen: Snipes' view of Peepers, much to her annoyance.
-->'''Snipes:''' Girls! They think they know everything. Why don't you run along home, be a good house wife, make cheese?\\
'''Peepers:''' Snipes, you think you're ssso sssuperior!


Added DiffLines:

* ViewersAreMorons: Pateau's narration explains '''everything''', including plot points the characters already talked to death and scenes the viewer is watching at that very moment and thus can deduce for themselves. Sadly TruthInTelevision, as apparently test audiences were confused on what was going on in test screenings, so they added Pateau's narration to make everything as clear as possible, to the film's detriment.


Added DiffLines:

* WellDoneSonGuy: "Uncle Dukie" to Hunch, very much so. See PunchClockVillain, above.

This is a very loose AdaptationExpansion of the tale of Chanticleer the rooster, who believed his crowing made the sun shine. It is also an equally loose adaptation of the play [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chantecler_(play) ''Chanticler'']] by the French writer Edmond Rostand (also known for ''Main/CyranoDeBergerac''), bearing little resemblance to it apart from some of the characters.

* MinionWithAnFInEvil: Hunch, who attempts to kill Edmond's group ''twice'', but only helps them get further along in their mission. The first time, he "sucked em' into an adequate pipe" which only lead them to the city and the second time he tried killing them while they were tied up, but he only let them loose.

* DrowningPit: Snipes accidently causes one of these when his claustrophobia kicks in while they're trapped in a toy box going through an aqueduct pipe. He tries to peck his way out of the box, but this only ends up flooding the toy box. Luckily, they get out of the aqueduct pipe and get the lid of the toy box open before anyone drowns.
