Storyline

A rooster is unable to get worms; the other chickens either get there first or trick him out of the worms. But there's one worm nobody else competes for, because it's a trickster. It uses the garden hose, a balloon, toothpaste, and a high-voltage line to fool the chicken. It gets the chicken stuck in a pipe, then launches it with a hotfoot. The rooster doesn't believe it, so the worm launches him again. The worm then attaches a baby rattle to his tail and fools the chicken, but a real rattler mistakes the worm for her child. The worm and rooster team up to get the rattler stuck in a fence, using a couple of golf balls, then shake hands and walk away. The light finally dawns on the rooster, and he comes back after the worm who traps him in the fence, right next to the snake. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Foghorn Leghorn's (possible) relative
28 July 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

When I first read the title, I naturally assumed that "The Rattled Rooster" was going to be a Foghorn Leghorn cartoon. It was a little jarring to see a different rooster (he looks like a slimmed-down version of FL) running through the routine. When he misses his chance to catch a worm in the morning - despite messing with the grandfather clock - this anonymous rooster comes across a rapscallion worm (a worm version of Bugs Bunny, you might say). After the rooster comes up with several tricks to catch the worm - all of which the worm turns against him, natch - the worm gets the rooster to think that he's a rattlesnake...at which point a female rattlesnake mistakes him for one! What is it with these characters?! So, it's one of the lesser known works from the Termite Terrace crowd, but worth seeing (if only once). Available on YouTube.
