''The Fearless Four'' (''Die Furchtlosen Vier'') is a German animated film about four {{Funny Animal}}s that all have one thing in common: they want to sing, but can't for whatever reason (they're supposed to be working at something else for Fred and Buster; for Gwen, her family wants to ''kill her'' and for Tortellini, it's because he's a fairly worthless husband). The film follows, in order, the easygoing bloodhound Buster, the woeful donkey Fred, the graceful Siamese cat Gwendolyn and the self-assured rooster Tortellini. Originally intending to go to Paris to seek fame, Buster and Fred, and Tortellini and Gwen later, wind up going in just the wrong direction--to Bremen. They only realize their mistake when they get lost in the forest and come upon an owl, who tells them they are, in fact, nowhere near Paris. She does however, point them in the direction of Bremen, the nearest city.

The story was very loosely inspired by the folk tale of the "Literature/TheBremenTownMusicians". Not to be confused with the German adaptation of the same fairy tale ''Animation/TownMusiciansOfBremen'' and/or the Spanish adaptation ''WesternAnimation/LosTrotaMusicos''.
