Four famished foxes make fun of their brother Fosdyke, who feels fondly for fried figs, fennel, and French bread. Leaving him behind to ry and flambe, they go foraging for fowl in aforbidden farmyard. Unfortunately, the foxes find the fowl forewarned. Foiled, they return to their den. Will they ever filch a fabulous farmyard feast? or will they forgo fowl and finally admit that" a fox is a fox, whatever the food"?
