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.

Classic short is what this is. Foghorn Leghorn is a great character and always provides a good laugh in his shorts. As opposed to trying to trick Henry Chickenhawk into thinking he is not a chicken, he does the opposite. And what are the results? Laughter.
