Henry, it's time.

Which one did you say moved?

The one on the left.

Aw. Aw.

You're a poppa.

You're a momma.


You little sneak.

Hello, Libby.



Hello, Buck.

He's got your eyes.

Get out of there, you

little prickle bush.

All right, this is gonna be a big one.


Hello, Arlo.

Come on out.

Look at you.



That's Clawtooth Mountain.

And this is our farm.

And we're all gonna

take care of it together.

What? Gotcha!




Ha-ha. Gotcha back!

Momma, I'm done watering.

Good job, Libby. Buck,

get back to your chores.

What? Thanks, Buck.

But I... I...

You're all set.

Can't I do something else, Momma?

Get going.


Who is that?


Hey, Eustice.

Aw, you stuck, little guy?

Let me get that for you. You're free.

Hello, move. Go find

your poppa and your...


Whoa. The river's not something

to mess around with there, Arlo.

Be careful. What's the problem?

Poppa, Henrietta is the

worst one in the coop!

Yesterday you said

Footless Fran was the worst.

She's only got one foot.

You don't have to like 'em, Arlo.

You just have to feed 'em.

That should do it.

Now, this will keep them rotten

critters from stealing our food

because I made this

silo 100% critter-proof.

Put your mark on there,

Henry. You earned it.

Yeah, Poppa, do it! Come on! Yeah!

Only if your momma does it first.

If anyone's earned a mark

around here, it's her.

Did you just put your

mark higher than mine?

What? No. It's just the

angle you're looking at it.

The "angle," huh?

Ooh, ooh. Me too! Me, me, me! My turn!

My turn!

Now hold on. It's not that easy.

You've got to earn your

mark by doing something big.

For something bigger than yourself.

Someday you'll all make your mark

and I can't wait to see it.

That is how you clear

a field. Attaboy, Buck.

He'll figure it out. Be just fine.

Go on, Buck. You earned it.

Good job, son.

You've got it, Libby!

Just a little bit more.

Beautiful. You earned

your mark, sweetheart.

Whoa, whoa, whoa!


He'll get there.

All right, you cluckers,

you're about to get fed.

Arlo. Huh?

Come here. Buck! What happened?

I came to help you with your chores.

And then they attacked.

You're gonna be okay.

Tell Momma I love her.

I see a light.

I'll go get help!

Oh, you should see your face!

I should've known!

Always got to mess me up. Me?

You mess up your chores

and everyone else's.

- You're such a coward.

- Buck!

I ain't a coward. And

I'm gonna make my mark.

Just like you, and Libby, and everyone!

You will, darling. You just

need a little more time.

Forget it. I didn't even

want that dumb mark anyway.

I got an idea.

Arlo. Arlo. Wake up.


Come with me.


Where are we going? You'll see.

Okay, now take a walk out there.

By myself? Go on.

Poppa. Poppa.

Calm down. Breathe.


Sometimes you got to

get through your fear

to see the beauty on the other side.


I got a new job for you tomorrow.

That is if you still

want to make your mark.

The dang wilderness critter's coming

over the fence, eating our food,

and I've had it up to my snout.

If this keeps up, we won't have

enough food to survive the winter.

That's why you are

gonna catch that critter.

Then along comes a critter...

And this is how you're

gonna finish the job.

When that critter's taken care of,

you'll put your mark on

the silo right next to mine.

I'll take care of the critter,

Poppa. It won't stand a chance.

What are you doing, you bug?

Get out of here.

Huh! Move along, leaf. Move along.

You're dead, critter.

Okay. You're free.
