When a fox spots a scrumptious-looking goose in the street, he invites her over for dinner. Despite the chicks’ protests that “that is NOT a good idea!” the goose agrees. They go for a stroll, then go further into the deep dark woods, and soon they’re in the kitchen boiling water for soup. All the while the chicks are adamantly protesting, and just when the two of them realize a key ingredient is missing… the goose pulls the fox into the soup! And then she and her children enjoy the fox soup together.
