Fridge / Rock-A-Doodle

Fridge Brilliance

  • Snipes is claustrophobic because, being a small bird, he's used to wide open spaces to fly in. Being stuck in a small, enclosed space would, naturally, be terrifying for him.

Fridge Horror

  • There are actually two in this movie. When Edmond and the gang are tied up in the trailer and Hunch breaks in to try to kill them, we see a tiger skin rug. Heck, Hunch even gets bitten by it. Now, a tiger skin rug would be perfectly normal if this wasn't a city inhabited by animals. Think about that for a moment.
  • The second one is about Hunch. Notice his thin, bare, pink neck. He's supposed to be a pygmy owl, right? Pygmy owls - heck, no owl has a thin neck like that. That neck of his most likely used to have feathers covering it. It's made quite obvious that the Duke hates Hunch and abuses him. So, how do you think Hunch lost all those feathers?
  • Make that three. When we are first introduced to the Duke's owl henchmen, there are six of them (besides Hunch). These same six owls appear alongside the Duke throughout the movie. Then comes the scene when the Duke turns into a tornado. Here, there are only five owls. You don't think that the Duke and the other owls got a bit too hungry after Edmond and the gang ruined their picnic, do you?
  • There's also a scene in which Hunch is singing a song, and finishes with "most of all, Mom... I miss you". It may be just a song, but considering that the Duke is his uncle, who's willing to bet the Duke killed his sister/sister-in-law (depending on how Hunch is related to him) for some reason?

Fridge Logic:

  • There are quite a few scenes that make zero sense. One of the first comes early on, when Edmond realizes he's naked, covering himself in embarrassment (though he doesn't appear to have anything to cover up). To help cover himself up, he puts on a long-sleeved shirt... which still leaves his lower half completely exposed.
  • Another instance of this is when the club Chanticleer is playing at bans all cats, mice, dogs and birds. How do Edmond and the gang sneak in? By dressing as penguins...
  • To say nothing of the glaring question, if Chanticleer is needed to make the sun rise, why did it rise that one time without his help?
    • Unkle Dukey did it, maybe?
      • More practical explanation: Chanticleer's crowing awakens the sun every morning. One morning it accidentally wakes up a little early, then (as shown in the movie) it basically realizes its "alarm clock" (Chanticleer's crowing) hasn't gone off yet and goes back to bed.
      • Chanticleer's crow energizes the sun. There was a little bit of left-over from yesterday's crow so the sun came up a little. Once it ran out of crowing energy, it went back down until Chanticleer's super-crow, which super-energized it, causing it to rise straight to the middle of the sky.
      • As a small child, this Troper always assumed that the Sun saw how the other animals mocked Chanticleer and drove him away so she refused to rise again as punishment for their bad behavior.
      • God got bored one day and wanted to fuck around with a rooster, so he played yo-yo with the sun.
  • When Goldie (a pheasant) loses her shoes, we get a closeup of her (albeit, stockinged) feet, which seem human-like with toes etc. However, doesnt every other birdlike-entity in the movie have talons? All other birds in the movie at least look like birds. Goldie is essentially a human with a fowl head.
  • As a nocturnal creature who's Weakened by the Light, it's understandable why the Duke would want to immerse the world in unending darkness. But why would he want it to never stop raining? If everything is flooded, then he and his boys aren't going to have any prey to eat.
