What would a smart chicken try?
19 June 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

I think that, I say I think that by 1949, blustery old Foghorn Leghorn had become a Looney Tunes star about as much as Bugs Bunny or Daffy Duck. "Henhouse Henery" continues him on his streak of trying to explain to self-proclaimed chicken hawk (no, in this case it's not a warmonger refusing to serve in the army) Henery Hawk the idea of a chicken...by sending him after Barnyard Dog. Not only that, he also sends Henery after some ducks and even a turtle. Go figure! Yes, maybe these cartoons leave unanswered the question of the origin of the enmity between FL and BD. But whatever it is, it makes for some great scenes, especially at the end. In conclusion, they're not starting too big.
