Leghorn by the numbers
19 February 2004 | by (Rijswijk, ZH, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

The misadventures of Foghorn Leghorns usually follow the same pattern: rooster hurts dog, dog maims rooster, rooster meets somebody (in the early years Henery Hawk) and uses him to pester dog, dog then does the same to strike back at the rooster. It is ironic that while Henery was originally the star (being the hunter, at least he has a reason to be on the attack), he would soon have to make way for other visitors to Old Macdonald's farm.

In their fifth feature together, Chickenhawk Henery still can't tell a chicken from a dog (or a pheasant for that matter). He does however know the lyrics to `A hunting we will go' and joins Foghorn for a duet. Foghorn has also broadened his range from the usual "Camptown Races" to give us his rendition of `Old Macdonald'. Between all this merry farmyard singing, there is some serious mutilation going on.

Foghorn's schemes normally involve a certain dispensation of disbelief, like telling the little hawk that Barnyard Dog is a pheasant, or selling him some vanishing cream. The Dog on the other hand likes to use elaborate traps to get his own back at Foghorn. When he instructs Henery to built his latest rooster trap, Foggy not only falls for it, but helps set it up! How typical. When both parties have exhausted their bag of tricks, rooster and dog get into an old fashioned fist fight. However, the winner remains undecided.
