Busby Berkeley meets Colonel Sanders
10 March 1999 | by (Denver, CO) – See all my reviews

This is a fantastic Silly Symphony short. The Cock O' the Walk comes into town and woos a chicken away from another rooster, which of course leads to a fight. The mid sections of this film are the most enjoyable as we witness a gigantic Hollywood musical production number performed entirely by poultry. The fight sequence is also a fantastic piece of colorful animation. A truly wonderful short!
