Storyline

Little Henery the Chicken Hawk wants to trap Foghorn Leghorn for his dinner, and the barnyard dog says he will help Henery to catch Foghorn on one condition - that Henery find him a bone. Henery's effort to find the dog a bone involves obtaining cheese for a mouse and a fish for a cat, with Foghorn's help! Once the dog is given his bone, he uses it to knock Foghorn out so that Foghorn can be carried away by Henery on a toy train. Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

Goofs

Henery Hawk agrees to trade a bone, a fish and a piece of cheese for information, but he distributes the items all at the end of the cartoon, meaning that he got the information he needed before the exchanges. His original plan was to trade the cheese for information on how to get the fish and the fish for the location of the bone, but when he digs up the bone, he still has the cheese and the fish.

"I'm a rootin' tootin' chicken hawk!"
1 October 2015 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Henery Hawk's never-ending quest to catch a chicken continues in this funny short directed by Bob McKimson. Henery, now using a lasso as he thinks he's a cowboy or something (which is too cute), tries and fails to rope Foghorn Leghorn. The dejected chicken hawk believes he's "too teeny to catch chickens." Barnyard Dog steps in and promises to help Henery nab the rooster in exchange for a bone, which leads to amusing interactions between the adorable Henery and a funny cat and mouse, as well as blowhard Foghorn sticking his nose in where it doesn't belong. The incomparable Mel Blanc handles a variety of voices in this one and does a masterful job. The music is lively and cheerful. The animation is crisp with lush colors. I don't think you can go wrong with a cartoon that has Henery Hawk. This one's funny and cute with likable characters and nice animation.
