Storyboard Text

  • Mother duckling is resilient and will not stop laying on the egg until it is hatched, no matter what the other ducks are saying. The chicken even told the mother duckling to stop wasting time laying on the egg that will never hatch.
  • The ugly duckling hatches and looks different than the other beautiful ducklings, however the mother duckling does not care how the duckling looks.
  • The ugly duckling's siblings constantly remind him of how ugly he is and how he is different from them, treated him as unequal from the rest.
  • The Ugly duckling runs away from home and from his family because he feels like they do not accept him. The ugly duckling flew a great distance and eventually found himself amidst a flock of wild ducks.
  • A sportsmen shot at the geese, tinging the pond red with blood. The ugly duckling was thankful he was so ugly that he was not shot or bitten by the sportsmen's intimidating dog. The ugly duckling decided to fly away and it was safe and finally reached a cottage.
  • He leaves the cottage and goes to the other swans and imitates their actions of bowing their heads underneath the water. When he did it the pond was nearly frozen and he was struggling to survive.  A man walking saw what had happened and saved him and took him home to his family where he is called "young and pretty."
