How many time can one bear bend over?
22 March 2004 | by (Rijswijk, ZH, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

If only John Steinbeck had known how many cartoons his characters from "Of mice and men" would inspire. This time George and Lenny (or 'Junior' in this case) are two bears mind set on catching a chicken. Not the rooster, whom they send to the North Pole in no time, just the chicken. As usual in a Tex Avery cartoon, "Henpecked Hoboes" is no more than one joke repeated a number of inventive ways: George tries to lure the chicken by wearing a crazy disguise, Junior hits George on the head instead of the chicken, George kicks Junior in the behind ("Bend over, Junior"). They should have gone for the rooster instead.

It's the crazy disguises the two of them wear that are truly inspired. First George (who is actually a lot smaller than either rooster or chicken) dresses up as rooster stud, then he puts on an appetizing king-size worm suit. The enormous Lenny gets to dress up as a baby chick, but takes his role way too seriously. Meanwhile, in a sub plot we see the rooster making his long way back home from Antarctica. Unfortunately the payoff is not as elaborate as the set-up. Oh yes, there is also one of those gags with African stereotypes that were common at the time but have been outlawed since.

7 out of 10 (one for each scheme)
