The series 'The Animals of Farthing Wood' is definitely the best cartoon ever made and this particular video is the best one out of all 9.
It is the conclusion to the war between the blue fox, Scarface and the leader of the animals that came from to White Deer Park from Farthing Wood, Fox.
In the previous video, Scarface had killed Fox's daughter, Dreamer, prompting the war between the foxes to begin. Fox's son Bold wanted to fight back but his father, Fox was unsure of what to do and refused to go out into a war with Scarface and his family, forcing Bold to leave White Deer Park for a new life as far away from the park as possible.
At the end of the previous video, Fox had made an unsuccessful attempt to kill Scarface by sending Adder to do it but she got the wrong fox, enraging Scarface, who attacked Adder and forced her into hiding, where she planned to get revenge.
This video starts in the town where Fox's son, Bold went to after becoming injured by hunters.
Bold meets a vixen called Whisper and they become mates but it seems that she is only using him and when the chance arives she calls on him to make a dangerous journey through the countryside back to White Deer Park as she is expecting to give birth to their cubs in a month or so. Bold returns for the sake of his cubs, although in his heart he knows that the journey will cost him his life.
Meanwhile back at White Deer Park, after a fight between the vixens, Fox's mate and Scarface's mate, Scarface declares an attack on all of the animals that came to White Deer Park from Farthing Wood in order to kill them all, including Fox. He and a pack of blue foxes plan to do this but one fox from Scarface's family is secretly on Fox's side, since a romance with Fox's daughter, Charmer. It seems that he must decide where his loyalties lie.
This is truly an excellent video but if buying this for your children then make sure you watch it with them as it is a very mature cartoon. It has even been rated PG whereas every other Farthing Wood video has always been rated U. After seeing it you'll understand why this one qualifies as a PG rating.
But don't be put off by the fact that its a PG rated video. It is still a brilliant cartoon to watch and suitable for people of all ages.
