The sky is falling

You all know the beginning premise: Chicken Little runs around saying "The sky is falling," and the rumor spreads.

But who can tell the rest of the story?

More and more birds (Turkey Lurkey, et al) become similarly afraid, and together they journey to warn the king. Along the way, they come across the path of Foxy Loxy, who generously offers her den to keep the others safe while she undertakes the perilous journey to the king. Of course the sky is fine, Foxy gets fat, and the birds go missing or KIA.

Next thing you know, the government imposes extortionate environmental standards, takes control of a major auto corporation, attempts to disarm the populace and silence opposition...
