Fantastic Mr Fox, The


something about it.

Well, I'm off.

Have a good day, my darlings!

You know, Foxes live in holes

for a reason.

Hm, yes, I know.

What're you wearing?

Why a cape with the

pants tucked into your socks?

I guess he's just...


Oh, hey, Mr. Fox.

Yes. Here it is.

This is the tree.

Come on over. This is...

Uh, I'm gonna call you back.

Obviously, it's first growth,


Original dirt floor, good bark,

skipping stone hearth... as you can see.


Kylie! What'd I tell you?

I'm showing the property.

- You're not supposed to be here.

- Oh, what time is it? I'm sorry.

This is Kylie. He's the super.

He's a little...

What's in the bucket, Mr. Kylie?

Kylie? Kylie!

- Just minnows. Try one?

- Certainly. Thank you.

It's not exactly an evergreen, is it?

Aren't there any pines on the market

this side of the river?

But, pines are pretty hard to come by

in your price range.

What? What?

What's that?

May I ask what you do

for a living, Mr. Fox?

I used to steal birds,

but now I'm a newspaper man.

Oh, sure. I've seen your by-line.

Good afternoon, gentlemen.

- You're going? You're...

- Oh, and Kylie...

Thank you for the minnow.

It was superb.

Don't buy this tree, Foxy.

You're borrowing at nine and a half

with no fixed rate,

plus moving into the most

dangerous neighborhood in the country

...for someone of your type of species.

You're exaggerating, Badger.

I'm sugar-coating it, man!

This is Boggis, Bunce, and Bean!

Three of the meanest, nastiest, ugliest

farmers in the history of this valley!

Really? Tell me about them.


Walt Boggis is a chicken farmer.

Probably the most successful in the world.

He weighs the same

as a young rhinoceros.

He eats three chickens every day for

breakfast, lunch, supper, and dessert.

Roald Dahl

Roald Dahl (English: , Norwegian: [ˈruːɑl ˈdɑːl]; 13 September 1916 – 23 November 1990) was a British novelist, short story writer, poet, screenwriter, and fighter pilot. His books have sold more than 250 million copies worldwide.Born in Wales to Norwegian immigrant parents, Dahl served in the Royal Air Force during the Second World War. He became a flying ace and intelligence officer, rising to the rank of acting wing commander. He rose to prominence as a writer in the 1940s with works for both children and adults, and he became one of the world's best-selling authors. He has been referred to as "one of the greatest storytellers for children of the 20th century". His awards for contribution to literature include the 1983 World Fantasy Award for Life Achievement, and the British Book Awards' Children's Author of the Year in 1990. In 2008, The Times placed Dahl 16th on its list of "The 50 greatest British writers since 1945".Dahl's short stories are known for their unexpected endings, and his children's books for their unsentimental, macabre, often darkly comic mood, featuring villainous adult enemies of the child characters. His books champion the kindhearted, and feature an underlying warm sentiment. Dahl's works for children include James and the Giant Peach, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda, The Witches, Fantastic Mr Fox, The BFG, The Twits and George's Marvellous Medicine. His adult works include Tales of the Unexpected. more…
