    Threat and horror

    There are scenes of threat in which a family of ducks and other animals are chased by a knife-wielding chef, caught in nets and storms, almost trodden on by dancers, and in one sequence they fear they will be eaten by two aging herons. Although some sequences are tense with scary moments, there are reassuring outcomes and moments of comedy throughout.


    There is a use of ‘heck’.

    Rude humour

    A young bird gets paranoid about pooping while flying, and being seen while she does her business in some bushes. A bird teases her older brother when his attempts at talking to a girl fail, saying she is sorry he won’t get to “make babies” with her”. There is a slight play on words as a pigeon apologises to some ducks for “busting your bills”.

    Dangerous behaviour

    A duck accidentally inhales helium from a balloon, inflating and then talking in a squeaky voice.
