- 1. Where shall we go?
- 2. Good morning to you too, Twig.
- 3. Have you definitely got
all your books today?
- 4. Oh, your bag's behind the sofa.
- 5. - Don't forget your lunchbox.
- Thanks, Mom.
- 6. I'll see you later!
- 7. Twig, you know you can't go to school.
- 8. Hey, boy. How was your day?
- 9. Oh, whoops.
- 10. I was going to take him out
but I guess I lost track of time.
- 11. Sorry, Twig.
- 12. How was school?
It was fine, thanks.
- 13. Frida and David are downstairs.
- 14. I'm going to go play with them for a bit
if that's okay?
- 15. Just be back for dinner and,
you know, just don't get in any trouble.
- 16. Hat, scarf, Alfur.
- 17. Got everything?
Yep! Okay, see you in a bit!
- 18. There he is.
- 19. If you squint, you can just see him.
- 20. I still can't believe
you let this guy steal your shoes, David.
- 21. Let him? If you hadn't…
- 22. We don't need to get into that again,
I think we all know what happened.
- 23. Hmm. Actually, my records are
a little hazy on this particular incident.
- 24. Let's just stick to Hilda's plan. Ready?
- 25. Always.
- 26. This kind of thing never happened
before I met you.
- 27. Huh? You!
- 28. - Oh, cruddlesticks.
- 29. Ooh…
- 30. Hey, give them back!
- 31. You snooze, you lose your shoes!
- 32. That didn't work, any more ideas?
- 33. Where shall we go?
- 34. Twig? Twig?
- 35. Twig? Twig?
- 36. He's not in Nowhere Space.
- 37. Mom, he's not here.
- 38. Are you sure you looked under your bed?
- 39. The snack cupboard?
- 40. He must be in the house somewhere.
- 41. I wouldn't be so sure of that.
- 42. Antler scratches.
- 43. Made some hours ago if I'm not mistaken.
- 44. He went out in the night?
- 45. I've got to go and look for him.
- 46. Good idea.
I'll take the car and look, too.
- 47. Any luck?
- 48. No.
- 49. He's never done anything like this before.
- 50. He'll turn up.
He's got a mind of his own, that one.
- 51. Uh-huh, uh-huh. I have news!
- 52. - Alfur?
- 53. I've received word
from the Lost Clan that,
- 54. last night,
a deerfox was seen leaving the city!
- 55. Do you think it was Twig?
- 56. You don't see a deerfox every day.
- 57. In fact, the chances of seeing
a deerfox any day are really pretty low.
- 58. - He's run away.
- Oh, Hilda.
- 59. But where would he go?
- 60. Well, some animals have a homing instinct.
- 61. But this is Twig's home.
- 62. No, wait. Our old home. The cabin!
- 63. Exactly what I was thinking.
- 64. Things haven't really been the same
for him since we moved here.
- 65. Of course, he'd miss the wilderness.
The hills, the forests, the freedom.
- 66. The fantastic, rural town planning.
- 67. Mom, we have to go and find him, now!
- 68. Maybe not now. It's getting dark.
- 69. We can't risk breaking down
with all those trolls out there.
- 70. - But…
- 71. We'll leave at sunrise, I promise.
- 72. Oh, I'll draw up a missing poster
- 73. and send it out
via courier-pigeon right away.
- 74. I hope you're okay, boy, wherever you are.
- 75. I can't believe he's out here all alone.
- 76. You know Twig. He can look after himself.
- 77. He's probably the scariest thing out here.
- 78. Mom, look out!
- 79. Oh, blimey!
- 80. These trolls
are getting bolder all the time.
- 81. I think I'm starting
to recognize some things.
- 82. I'm not surprised, we're not far now.
You never forget the place you grew up.
- 83. Wow.
- 84. Wow.
- 85. - What's that?
- 86. Hello?
- 87. Oh, no!
- 88. - I'll get my mom.
- 89. Okay, just hold on. I'll help you.
- 90. Hello.
- 91. What are you?
- 92. You're beautiful.
- 93. Look at these horns.
- 94. They're like little twigs.
- 95. There you are!
- 96. You frightened me to death.
- 97. How many times have I told you?
- 98. You know you're not to go
too far from me while we're out here.
- 99. I'm old enough to look after myself, Mom.
- 100. Oh, are you now? So if I wasn't here,
- 101. I suppose you'd know
which direction we need to walk in
- 102. - to get home, would you?
- Of course, I would.
- 103. It's this way.
- 104. Oh, Hilda.
- 105. There. I wouldn't get lost that easily.
- 106. Home sweet home.
- 107. I forgot how little was left.
- 108. Twig? Twig?
- 109. Here, boy! Twig!
- 110. Oh. Well, this is new.
- 111. Excuse me. Hello?
- 112. Hello.
- 113. So you can see me.
- 114. You are the legal owner
of this creature, correct?
- 115. Yes, I am! Well, we are.
Have you seen him?
- 116. Seen him?
Why, we're still doing the paperwork!
- 117. Twig was here?
- 118. What happened? Did he look okay?
- 119. He looked all right to me.
- 120. But I wish I could say
the same for our rabbit cavalry.
- 121. You should keep that thing on a leash!
- 122. Is he still here?
Do you know where he went?
- 123. Unfortunately, my intel
is extremely limited.
- 124. The only thing my team's turned up
so far is this set of footprints.
- 125. But it's really too soon to say
- 126. if they're of any real value
to the investigation.
- 127. You showed that wolf, Twig!
- 128. I think he went into the forest
but the tracks stop here.
- 129. Hilda, wait.
- 130. You know it's not a good idea
to wander into a forest
- 131. if you don't know where you're going.
- 132. But I do know.
We're going to ask for help.
- 133. Hello?
- 134. Wood Man?
- 135. Obviously.
- 136. Hmm…
- 137. So you really haven't seen him?
- 138. I'm afraid I have not.
- 139. But you must have a book about deerfoxes
- 140. or something that might help?
- 141. Nope.
- 142. There aren't really
any books about deerfoxes
- 143. because no one
really knows anything about deerfoxes.
- 144. A lot of people
aren't sure they even exist.
- 145. But that's ridiculous. Twig exists.
- 146. So do I.
- 147. But there aren't any books
written about wood men either.
- 148. Nothing peer-reviewed anyway.
- 149. - Hmm…
- 150. That's where you'll get
the real lowdown on deerfoxes.
- 151. But I don't really go in for that stuff.
- 152. Well, this was very helpful
but we should probably be getting along.
- 153. Thanks for your help, Wood Man.
- 154. Sometimes,
it's better to retrace old steps
- 155. than it is to forge new paths.
- 156. Did you know the eagles
are back in the valley?
- 157. Mm. Take care of yourself.
- 158. Hmm…
- 159. We're not going to find him. Are we?
- 160. We're not giving up, Hilda.
We keep looking. However long it takes.
- 161. Do you remember what happened here?
- 162. Come back a bit.
- 163. You don't need
to get so close to the edge.
- 164. They're beautiful, aren't they?
- 165. What are they doing?
- 166. They're catching food
to give to their babies.
- 167. Their nests are in the cliffs.
- 168. Whoo!
- 169. Whoa.
- 170. Mom? Do you see that?
- 171. Hilda!
- 172. Hilda!
- 173. Stay there, I'm coming for you.
- 174. I'll find a way down,
just, just… don't move.
- 175. I won't!
- 176. Oh!
- 177. Nope, not that way.
- 178. At least I have you to keep me company.
- 179. Mom!
- 180. Hilda, hold on!
- 181. - Hilda!
- 182. Where did you come from?
- 183. Follow him!
He's showing you a safe way up!
- 184. I don't know what would've happened
if Twig hadn't been there that day.
- 185. Mom, look!
- 186. Hilda, for goodness sake!
- 187. Be careful, remember?
- 188. Of course, I remember.
- 189. I was looking at something when I fell.
- 190. It was that.
- 191. - What is that?
- I don't know.
- 192. But I bet it has something to do
with Twig and where he's going.
- 193. Hmm. I agree.
- 194. So, I guess we have to climb down there.
- 195. I guess we do.
- 196. But let's find somewhere
a little less steep.
- 197. - This got steep fast.
- 198. Not worn out, are you?
- 199. Come on. Race you to the top.
- 200. Not worn out, are you? Mom?
- 201. Keep climbing, Hilda.
- 202. Just don't look to your right.
- 203. - It's okay, just watch your footing…
- 204. and move very slowly.
- 205. Just, whatever you do, don't…
- 206. Hilda!
- 207. Hilda, no!
- 208. Twig!
- 209. - Oh.
- 210. Twig, come to me!
- 211. Hilda!
- 212. You two are quite a team.
- 213. Oh, Twig, I'm so sorry
you felt you had to run away.
- 214. I promise, I won't take you for granted,
and Mom can take you out more,
- 215. and we could get
a cat flap put in, a deerfox flap!
- 216. And…
- 217. Will you come home?
- 218. - But what made you come here?
- 219. Twig!
- 220. Whoa.
- 221. Have you ever seen anything like this?
- 222. I don't think anyone has.
- 223. They look just like Twig did
when we found him.
- 224. Twig? Is this…
- 225. Is this where you were born?
- 226. - What's happening?
- I think they're leaving.
- 227. Mom!
- 228. Hey! Hey, wait!
- 229. You can't just run away again,
not after saving my life.
- 230. I've got to thank you at least.
- 231. Where did you come from?
Are you all alone, you poor little thing?
- 232. Where are your parents?
- 233. It's okay, Twig.
- 234. I understand.
- 235. You've been the best friend
a girl could have.
- 236. You've always been there for me
and never asked anything in return.
- 237. If this is what you want,
then you should go.
- 238. But I'll miss you, boy.
- 239. Do you think he can come back
and visit one day?
- 240. I don't know.
- 241. Come on. It's time to go.
- 242. Everything's changed, hasn't it?
- 243. Yes. But it's the way
of the world for things to change.
- 244. It wasn't for nothing.
- 245. We'll always have
our memories of this place.
- 246. But that's all it is! Memories.
Our house is gone. The mountain's gone.
- 247. Our life here's gone. And now…
- 248. Now, Twig's gone too.
- 249. Oh, Hilda.
- 250. Twig, stop it, I'm not in the mood.
- 251. Twig?
- 252. Twig!
- 253. What are you doing here? I thought…
- 254. I thought you…
- 255. Looks like somebody
changed his mind after all.
- 256. Did you? Are you going to stay?
- 257. I thought I'd lost you.
- 258. All right. Let's go, everyone.
- 259. I'd like to get back to Trolberg
before this snow piles up.
- 260. Things are going to be different
from now on. I promise.
- 261. - All right, Twig, you ready?
- 262. Huh?
- 263. - Aha!
- 264. Remember us?
- 265. Not so fast!
- 266. We're not leaving without David's shoes.
- 267. You'll never get these shoes!
- 268. What were you saying?
- 269. No! I'll get you for this!
- 270. You've got a lot of shoes between you!
- 271. - You haven't seen the last of…
- Oh, boo off.
- 272. - Thanks, Twig.
- That was amazing.
- 273. Well, David,
aren't you going to put them on?
- 274. - I got new ones.
- 275. My parents wouldn't let me
just not have any shoes.
- 276. Then why did we
even need to get them back?
- 277. For justice.
- 278. I think we should give them to Twig.
- 279. I don't think they're his style.
- 280. All right,
you've got your hat, your scarf,
- 281. there's sandwiches
and juice in your bag, and your compass.
- 282. Are you sure you're going
to be okay out there without me?
- 283. - I'm sure.
- Do you remember what I told you?
- 284. Uh, be back before sundown,
- 285. don't go further north
than the stone circle,
- 286. don't crawl into any strange holes.
- 287. And the most important thing?
- 288. Stay with Twig the whole time.
- 289. I'm counting on you to look out for her
when I'm not there, okay?
- 290. Will you do that for me?
- 291. Now, off you go. Have fun.
- 292. Our first adventure, Twig.
- 293. Just you and me.
- 294. Where shall we go?
