Ferngully is a spectacular rainforest where a bat named Batty, whose radar has gone haywire, joins together with Crysta, Pips and the Beetle Boys to save their world from the evil Hexxus. Ignoring the warnings of her friends, Crysta, the curious tree fairy, explores the world beyond Ferngully. She discovers Zak, a human who is helping to demolish the rainforest. Once Zak sees the beauty and magic of Ferngully, he vows to save it. But it may be too late. The diabolical Hexxus is on the loose and is intent on destroying all of Ferngully.



  • Crysta's father

    Crysta, don't you think you're a little old to believe in human tales?

  • Batty

    Human tails? Humans don't have tails. They have big, big bottoms that they wear with bad shorts and walk around saying "Hi, Helen."

  • Batty

    Are you sure?

  • Zak

    I'm positive.

  • Batty

    Only fools are positive.

  • Zak

    Are you sure?

  • Batty

    I'm positive. Oh! I fell for it!

  • Batty [Batty Rap lyrics]
    Yo - The name is Batty
    The logic is erratic
    Potato in a jacket
    Toys in the attic
    I rock and I ramble
    My brain is scrambled
    Rap like an animal
    But I'm a mammal

    I been brain-fried - electrified
    Infected and injectified...
    Vivisectified... and fed pesticide!
    My face is all cut-up
    'cos my radar's all shot-up
    Nuurse! I need a checkup from the neck-up
    I'm batty...

    They used and abused me
    Battered and bruised me
    Red wires - green wires
    Stuck 'em right through me
    So hear my batty word
    Exercise a little prudence
    When dealing with humans

    'Cause I'm a real fruit bat
    And I'm ready to rap - I'm ready to snap
    I suffer from sciatica and chapped lips
    And jock itch - like a rocket in my pocket
    And I need to scratch - but now I can't stop it
    I'm batty - I'm batty - It's my batty rap
    It's my batty rap
    It's my batty rap


"Do you believe in humans?"

They live in a secret world touched by magic and surrounded by nature, and the only human who has ever been there, must now fight to save it.
