"Some chicken hawk I am. Can't even get a chicken when he's still in his shell"
3 April 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Foghorn Leghorn's cartoons are always a lot of fun, and while Henhouse Henery is not one of his best it is still very entertaining. The animation is nicely coloured and fluid, but more vibrant later and Foghorn still looks a little overweight. The story is also on the predictable side with a situation that we have more than once with Foghorn. But it is also still fun and well paced, and the ending is well-rounded with Foghorn getting what he deserved. The music is outstanding, Carl Stalling was the quintessential Looney Tunes composer and Henhouse Henery boasts one of the most rousing and energetic scores of any of Foghorn's cartoons. The writing was even better later on, but the sharpness, wit and distinctive repetition for Foghorn, even in one of his earliest cartoons, are here and just as funny. The gags are similarly clever, the interplay between Foghorn and Barynyard Dog is inspired but it is Henery's battle with a turtle, which he mistakes for a chicken, that provides Henhouse Henery's best moment. Barnyard Dog doesn't have as much to do as he did later on and his voice has the sense of not-quite-settling, but he is a good foil for Foghorn, who is as distinctive and funny as ever. Henery, with a voice that recalls both Tweety and Speedy Gonzales, steals the show and has some great lines. Mel Blanc's vocal characterisations are consistently exuberant. Overall, a very entertaining cartoon, though Foghorn has done better. 8/10 Bethany Cox
