Synopsis

Using a mixture of animation and live action Canning Town Fox tells the true story of a hapless shoe salesman named Barney Banard who borrowed £30,000 from a one-legged loan shark named Beryl in order to buy up the world supply of Speed Brogues, (a new type of motorised shoe).
 
Unfortunately, it transpired that the company manufacturing the Speed Brogues were also illegally importing Nigerian Fighting Kittens, (hidden in crates of shoe leather) into this country. When the news broke Barney found himself unable to sell his Speed Brogues and as such had to find another way to repay the money that he had borrowed fom Beryl. After sometime he encountered an African national named Godfrey Breslaw who offered to share a fortune in gold doubloons with him, (which unbeknownst to Barney had been stolen from his girlfriend Athena's father several years earlier) if he helped to reclaim them. Unfortunately, when Barney went to pay off his debts Beryl smelt a rat and decided to tie Athena to a train track until Barney told her how he got the money and if there was anymore where it came from - And then things really started to get complicated.
