"You gotta keep, I say, you gotta keep on your toes. Toes, that is."
27 September 2015 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Once again, Henery Hawk is out to get a chicken and has his sights set on Foghorn Leghorn. Once again, Foghorn points him at another victim. In this case it's Sylvester the cat who, at the start of the cartoon, is about to murder Barnyard Dog (!) before Foghorn saves him. This may be the only time in all their cartoons together that Foghorn does Barnyard Dog a favor. Usually the two are at each other's throats. But I guess this time they have a mutual enemy in Sylvester. Solid voice work from the always-dependable Mel Blanc, who seemed to still be perfecting his Foghorn voice at this time. It would be a little deeper as time goes on. Energetic music from Carl Stalling. The animation is good with well-drawn characters and backgrounds. The Technicolor is always a plus. The short is funny, if not particularly hilarious. It's nice to see Sylvester interacting with characters he doesn't normally share the screen with.
