"Chanticleer and the Fox" is about a rooster named Chanticleer and a fox named Reynard who tries to lure the rooster away from the farm house and have him for dinner. While Chanticleer is initially wary of the fox, he soon gives in after the fox showers him with flattery, telling him how much he wants to hear Chanticleer sing to fool him into singing with his eyes closed. Chanticleer eventually escapes from the fox but only after learning not to fall for easy flattery.
