|~ The Falcon reminding Margalo as he was the one who raised her.|
The Falcon is the sole antagonist of the 2002 family film Stuart Little 2 and the main antagonist of the episode "A Little Bit Country" in Stuart Little: The Animated Series. He’s a nameless, ruthless peregrine falcon who’s described to be feared by all animals that he abuses and is known for stealing objects including planning to steal a wedding ring belonging to Mrs. Little. He also serves as Margalo's adoptive father figure, ex-boss and slave-driver and the primary arch-enemy of Stuart Little, Snowbell and Monty.
In the film, he was voiced by James Woods, who also played Hades in Disney's Hercules, himself in Family Guy, Lex Luthor in Justice League Action, Owlman in Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths, Dr. Phillium Benedict in Recess: School's Out!, Gloomius Maximus in Rolie Polie Olie, Captain Ahab in The Adventures of Moby Dick, Ned Trent in The Specialist, George Sheffield in Scarface: The World is Yours, Martin Walker in White House Down, Lester Diamond in Casino, Byron De La Beckwith in Ghosts of Mississippi and Maximilian "Max" Bercovicz in Once Upon a Time in America. In the animated TV series, he was voiced by Pat Fraley.
The Falcon is Margalo's egotistical master who treats Margalo much more like a pawn than a daughter figure in a very mean, abusive and traitorous way. He threatened Margalo to get Mrs. Little's ring for him or he’ll kill Stuart and have him for lunch.
By the time Margalo's loyalty with him wavers, the Falcon's darkest side eventually come to light: It is revealed that he is not just mere bully or abuser, but is also a ruthless, unpleasant and cold-hearted bird who will not hesitate to kill those whom stood against him, which he proved by nearly killed Stuart and Snowbell (despite the fact that cats eat birds). He’s even willing to kill Margalo, and would have succeeded had Stuart not stopped him.
It was revealed in Stuart Little 2 that the Falcon had found Margalo when she was an orphan and took her to his lair and he shared everything with her, even though he treated her more like a slave rather than a daughter figure.
Stuart Little 2
In Stuart Little 2, the Falcon bullied all creatures living in Manhattan, including Margalo, making him a feared bird. He’s known for stealing jewels and keeping Margalo to work as his pawn to work on many scams on families for him, including the Littles. When Margalo landed in Stuart Little's car, she gained the influence and trust of him and the rest of the Little family.
When the Littles were all out the next day, Margalo met with the Falcon and when he asked for any "valuables" the family had, she told him that they only had a ring. He asked for anything else and she stated that they were a kind, loving family that had each other to care for, much to his disgust. Falcon grew suspicious of Margalo actually beginning to like the family as much as they liked her. She remarked that no one else invited her to live with them, to which the Falcon reminded her that he found her as an orphan "plucked her out of the gutter" and "taught her a trade" and reminded her that she was there to do as he told her and get the valuables, not to make friends.
The more time Margalo spent with the family, she grew to like them and Stuart. The Falcon notices this one night when he spies on her spending a movie night with Stuart and sees how close they've both become. Finally losing his patience, the Falcon storms in on Margalo the next day when she was bathing in the birdbath and threatens her to fetch Mrs. Little's ring or else he'll eat Stuart. Margalo is forced to go through with this and she steals the ring and leaves later on in the evening. Stuart becomes concerned and worried about Margalo gone missing with only her pin left behind.
He suspects that the Falcon kidnapped her and sneaks out the house with Snowbell to go find her. They find out from Monty that the Falcon lives in the vacant observation deck of the Pishkin Building. Stuart arrives with a small bow and arrow as his defense weapon. He confronts the Falcon and asks him where she is, but then Margalo is remorseful behind him. The Falcon tells Stuart that Margalo's been playing him like a harp and reveals Mrs Little's ring. Margalo explained she didn't mean to hurt him. The Falcon mocks Stuart saying that he really thought that they were really friends, but Margalo said that she actually was his friend.
Furious, the Falcon picked up Stuart, took him outside the building and with a cruel smile, drops him attempting to let him fall to his death and restrained Margalo from trying to save him and imprisoned her in an empty paint can to provide her with an "attitude adjustment" and leaves. Fortunately, Stuart had landed on a garbage truck, but it took him to a garbage barge.
Meanwhile, Snowbell, getting worried about Stuart, makes his way there and finds Margalo and releases her. But the Falcon arrived and Snowbell hid in the paint can. The Falcon arrived and spotted Snowbell and said that he didn't like "canned food" and was about to throw him over the top of the building when Margalo stopped him and stated that she was through with being a thief under his orders and left him, taking the ring with her. The Falcon gave chase, but before he could catch up to her, Stuart had escaped the barge using a now-fixed toy biplane of his that he had accidentally broken earlier and rescues Margalo and the Falcon chases them through the city and then the sky. He attempts to crash the biplane by picking it up with his talons and ripping off the top, but Stuart managed to take control of the plane again and pulls up.
Stuart leaves Margalo to keep her safe from the danger and faces the Falcon and reflects light from his mother's ring into the Falcon's eyes, temporarily blinding him and allowing Stuart to parachute away. The Falcon's vision clears too late as Stuart's biplane then rams into him, causing him to lose several of his feathers and explodes into pieces, sending the greedy bird of prey plummeting several meters out of the sky and he lands right into a trash can where Monty was looking for food in.
In Stuart Little: The Animated Series
In the episode "A Little Bit Country", the Falcon returned and apparently didn’t get eaten by Monty after all. He has now made a trio of new crow henchmen and is out for exact revenge on Stuart and his friends. The Falcon chased Stuart, Snowbell and Monty into Crenshaw's new farm. Soon, the Falcon corners both Snowbell and Monty and Monty warns the Falcon to back off since cats eat birds, only for the Falcon to scare them. Snowbell then corrects Monty, telling the Falcon what he meant to say was "cats meet birds", then introduces himself to the Falcon before begging him to let him live.
Before he can kill Snowbell and Monty, Stuart distracts the Falcon by taunting him with a shouting in a sing-song voice, "You'll never get me! You'll never get me!", and then by blowing a raspberry out at the Falcon. The Falcon was then defeated again by crashing into a cage, fell down, then Snowbell closed the door and locked it, trapping him. Snowbell then told the menacing bird that he had the right to remain silent. From then on, the Falcon was never seen or heard from again. It’s implied that Falcon had been starved or was taken to taxidermy.
- Due to him having a sharp tan nose with a black tip, a spotted chest and city habitat, fans identify the Falcon as a peregrine falcon.
- The Falcon raising an orphaned Margalo could be a reference to the fact that falcon puppets are used to feed orphan birds.
- The Falcon is similar to Aunt Pristine Figg from Tom and Jerry: The Movie, which was released one decade before Stuart Little 2, as they are both the main antagonists of their respective films and serve as the corrupt guardian of the deuteragonist (Margalo and Robyn respectively). Also, they both attempt to kill the main protagonist (Stuart and Tom and Jerry respectively) in order to eliminate the deuteragonist's help.
- The Falcon is also the sole antagonist in the second film. Originally, the Falcon was going to have an army of pigeons to help him out.
- In the second movie, the Falcon works alone, but in the TV show, he has crows for henchmen.
- He’s proven to be the most evil and prominent Stuart Little villain since unlike characters such as Smokey he has no regard for any form of life and as opposed to Snowbell his alignment doesn’t alter across adaptations.
- Falcon's attempts to kill Snowbell and Monty shows that he doesn't care about the fact that cats are natural predators to birds like himself.
