Storyboard Text

  • An old widow with two daughters to care for and fed them with what she had: three pigs and a sheep named Moll.
  • The main rooster is named Chanticleer, he is always perfectly on time with his crowing. He was simply the best. He had a lover named Pertelote whom he loved a lot, along with the other six hens. 
  • Chanticleer had a nightmare one night that woke Pertelote and she asked him what was wrong. He told her all about his nightmare of a beast coming and killing him. Pertelote did not even hesitate to call him a coward and said she can't love a man who's a coward, she needs a real man.
  • Chanticleer then went on about how she should listen to him and his dreams and goes on to state the many cases that dreams have come true.  Such as the two men that spilt up and one was murdered which the other one had dreamt,or the man who dreamt his own drowning and died, or the man who saw himself in a tree who was hung, and another who saw himself being murdered who was.
  • He then tells Pertelote that she was beautiful and spent the rest of his day with his head held high and felt like he was on top of the world, along with his women. That night a fox snuck into the old women's yard and waited for the rooster and his wives to come out. The next morning Chanticleer saw a butterfly that made him notice to fox. The fox scared him but then the fox proclaimed that he wasn't there to hurt him he was just there to listen to him sing. Drawn towards him for saying that the fox sneakily grabbed him by the neck and ran to the forest.
  • Whislt in the fox's mouth the rooster told him to tell everyone following to get Chanticleer back to back off and the fox thought it was a good idea. When the fox opened his mouth the rooster flew to the highest branch he could. The fox pleaded that he was just going to have him over for dinner and didn't mean any harm. Chanticleer learned his lesson and said no. He wasn't foolish enough to fall for his flattering again.
