WATERSHIP DOWN is a 1978 animation, based on Richard Adams' book, about a group of rabbits looking for a new warren, facing predators and other dangers on their journey.

Violence

Occasionally rabbits are attacked and shot at, or fight. One rabbit is caught in a snare, a dog picks up several rabbits and tosses them about, and there are scenes in which rabbits fight each other using their teeth and claws. Some of these moments result in bloody injuries.

Threat

The rabbits are chased by cats, dogs, and foxes. A rabbit describes how human construction workers destroyed his warren, causing some rabbits to panic and die. A larger, tougher rabbit threatens to hurt those who disobey him.

Language

There is a single use of 'piss off' squawked by a loud-mouthed seagull, as well as use of 'damn'.
