Patou is both the deuteragonist and the narrator of Rock-A-Doodle. He was voiced by the late Phil Harris who also voiced Baloo in The Jungle Book, Thomas O'Malley in The Aristocats and Little John in Robin Hood.
Patou is a Basset Hound who is a good friend to both Chanticleer and Edmond, and plays the narrator character of the story. He is quite vocal on his distaste for the Grand Duke and intends to aid Edmond to bring Chanticleer back home. Likewise he is courageous and reasonable, but somewhat temperamental. His endeavor to find Chanticleer is hampered by the fact that he does not know how to tie his shoes (which he wears because of bunions, in which it is a running gag). However, in the end, he finally figures out how to tie them right, after Edmond teaches him.
