Neither Henery Nor Foghorn Is Funny In This One
19 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After telling his pop that he has a craving for something and can't figure out what it is, little "Henery" hears the facts of life from his dad. No, nothing to do with the birds and bees, just telling his boy that they are "hated and hunted down" because they are chicken hawks and chicken hawks eat chickens. That's what they do!

"Hey, that's for me," says the little bird. Henery doesn't even know what a chicken looks like, so he goes out looking. Just his luck - the first one he encounters is the huge "Foghorn Leghorn." From that point, this is Foghorn's cartoon, not Henery's. He's loud, he's abrasive, he's obnoxious, but who doesn't love Foghorn?

Along the way, as Foghorn puts on the little guy by telling him the nearby dog is a chicken, we get parody of a cigarette commercial from those days ("round, firm and fully-packed"), but overall I didn't find this a very funny cartoon. I doubt others did either which is probably why Henery never became a star. Foghorn wasn't either, but at least many of us have heard of him.

Henery sounds a little like Bugs. I guess Mel Blanc couldn't disguise his Brooklyn accent enough to make Henery sound different, although he did fine with Foghorn.
