Henery meets his match... in a turtle
18 February 2004 | by (Rijswijk, ZH, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Henery Hawk still gets top billing in his fourth cartoon appearance but judging from the still frame at the start, Foghorn was quickly gaining in popularity. Henery sure knows how to use a hammer (five time his size) to his advantage when hunting. But while the Chickenhawk dutifully explain his actions to the audience each and every time he appears, the intense hatred between Foghorn and the Barnyard dog remains forever unexplained.

Foghorn looks a bit fatter and Barnyard's (or Br'er Dog as he is referred to) voice was still changing when they appeared in `Henhouse Henery'. It must also be noted that Foghorn not only picks on Br'er Dog, but points Henery in the direction of some ducks and a turtle too. The sequence where Henery tries to catch this ‘chicken still in it's shell' is probably one of the highlights in his career.

`Henhouse Henery' also turned out to be one of the more influential entries in the series. No less than two of it's gags were edited into the compilation short `Feather blustered' (1958), even though only one of those was truly inspired. Furthermore, near the end Br'er dog and Henery come up with a rooster trap that Egghead Jr. would improve upon some years later in `Crockett-Doodle-Doo' (1960).
