  1. It’s very funny, but a little bit queer, I’ve never seen a fox do diving board, or even open a bottle of champagne! Of Course I understand as well. This is a joke with a lot of irony!

  2. You’re right , Roald Dahl is so talented. I read  » boy: Tales of chilhood » in the junior school, and  » charlie and the chocolate factory » after. These are two great book ,his life and work are so interesting.

  3. I’ve always loved this kind of animated drawings that have a very realistic look, I mean, not really drawn cartoons, but those who give the impression that the characters are plasticine. So thank you for showing this video.

  4. I also read many books of Roald Dahl, and every time I am never disappointed; the fantastic universe is always present, and the reading is not boring!

  5. I’ve never watched this but If you like this, I recommand you Chicken Run directed by Peter Lord and Nick Park. In fact, the trailer of Fantastic Mr. Fox remember me this British-American stop-motion animation family comedy film called Chicken Run because of human who are animals’s neighbors too and create an alarming atmosphere but it is comic too.
