16. Squire Fox Went Out in a Hungry
This spirited interpretation of the well-known song, "The Fox Went Out on a Chilly Night," also casts the fox in the role of a sexual predator who happens to fancy eating his victims. Wrapped up in a greatcoat like a highwayman, Squire Fox drags two innocents in their nightgowns out of their beds to their doom. Potter's foxy gentleman, however, has a certain gentility that the squire lacks, even though his intentions are equally dishonorable.
