* VileVillainLaughableLackey: The Grand Duke is a serious villain, using weather machine clouds to blot out the sun and flood the valley, and he's got magic on top of that. His diminutive but eager nephew Hunch is nowhere near as threatening, as even Patou narrates: "He's more a hoot than horrible ..."

* SapientEatSapient: The owls all seem to delight in taking the time to properly inform their prey that they're going to be eaten.
** The Grand Duke goes so far as to transform Edmund into a kitten, and explain it's to make him "more digestible."

* RandomEventsPlot: The plot almost runs on stream of conscious logic. Although its kindof validated by the whole thing being revealed to be a dream, the plot is still very bizarre.

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 Duke) has anything to say about it.

Pretty straightforward as far as animated folktales go, right? Well, no. Because we didn't mention the [[BigBad Grand Duke]], an evil wizard owl who hates the sun and wants it to rain forever. Or, speaking of, the flood that started once Chanticleer left.
