YMMV: The Animals of Farthing Wood
Adaptation Displacement: The TV series was based on a series of books by Colin Dann, but a lot more people know about the TV series than the books.
Just as well known at the time was the magazine spin-off: "Farthing Wood Friends" which had a catchy enough name that children often used it when they were referring to the show, and it ran to over a hundred issues. It's been forgotten because, well, magazines don't go into syndication.
Alternate Character Interpretation: If one read the Farthing Wood prequel stories (published after the initial book series), they'd discover that Fox's father was one of those responsible for the eventual destruction of Farthing Wood by banishing a troublesome protected species. With this in mind, it's possible to interpret Fox's character as one who resigns himself to protecting the animals, out of his own guilt for what his father caused.
Nightmare Fuel: The butcher bird's larder, crossing that damn road, among a lot of other scenes. This show was not primarily for children, or at the very least took on a ballsier PG Watership Down direction.
Seasonal Rot: Season 3 tends to be the least well-regarded amongst fans of the show, largely due to the change in animation style, the greater emphasis upon slapstick comedy over drama, and a less solid plot. Season 3 also drops a number of well-liked named characters without as much as an explanation (presumably to keep the cast smaller).
Poor, poor Bold. Whilst he may have started out well in life, once he left the safety of White Deer Park he was shot, crippled, injured by a snare, hunted, and would have starved if it wasn't for Crow and Whisper. Then, once he finally thinks life is turning around, Whisper insist they return to White Deer Park so their cubs can be born in safety. He's subsequently attacked by dogs, and if that wasn't enough the journey back is too much for his weak body to endure and he dies before his cubs are even born.
