Storyline

Little Henery the Chicken Hawk wants to prove he's big enough to hunt chickens, but he doesn't know what a chicken is. He labels Foghorn Leghorn a loud-mouthed shnook and dismisses him, prompting Foggy to indignantly try to prove he's a chicken and therefore fit to be Henery's prey.

Foghorn Leghorn, The (1948)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Henery the Chicken Hawk wants to prove to his father that he's big enough to catch a chicken but the only problem is that he doesn't know what a chicken looks like. Foghorn tries to teach the kid but he's just too stubborn to listen and ends up trying to catch a dog. This is a pretty good short from the Merrie Melodies lot as it contains some minor laughs and some good action. I think what works best is all the action between the dog and Foghorn who keeps getting blamed for everything that happens. Henery is cute enough to work, although I didn't laugh at him too much.
