Storyline

Chickens from Plymouth Rock College and the Rhode Island Reds prepare for the big game. At the pre-game dance at Plymouth Rock, a glee club sings the title song. The big game arrives; Plymouth Rock is coached by a duck, and Rhode Island by a rooster. And the game turns out to be, not football, but laying eggs (though the teams look and act surprisingly macho). Going into the half, Rhode Island leads 75-30. In the locker room, Plymouth Rock gets a pep talk, while the Rhode Island team is stuffed with billiard balls. For some reason, the Rocks get penalized for laying live chicks while there's no penalty for the billiard balls. Meanwhile, a Plymouth Rock benchwarmer who's been pestering the coach all through the picture gets sent in and single-handedly wins the game, 100-99, at the last second.

performance-enhancing drugs: the original version
2 August 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

With all the talk that we often hear about athletes using performance-enhancing drugs to win competitions, Friz Freleng's "Along Flirtation Walk" becomes all the more interesting. It starts out with a dance in Plymouth Rock College - which reminded me just a little of the dance in "The Way We Were" - a college for chickens. The next day, there's the big game against the Rhode Island Reds. It looks like it's going to be football, but it turns out that they're laying eggs. That's when the cheating starts, as the Reds ingest billiard bills so that they keep laying. More surprises lie ahead.

I know, the people making this cartoon probably never intended for anyone to interpret anything about athletes taking drugs. It's just that I always like to associate the portrayals with things about which I hear in the news. If that makes me a weirdo, then so be it.

All in all, an OK cartoon.
