Young hawk replaced by old hen
18 February 2004 | by (Rijswijk, ZH, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

`Lovelorn Leghorn' is rather a misleading title, as our Foghorn obviously prefers sunbathing over matters of the heart. He won't be receiving much love either, as he is in for a beating. Not only does the Barnyard Dog beat him to the chase to pull the first prank, but before Foghorn can take revenge, he gets another wallop from Prissy and her roller pin.

It's no wonder that old square britches Prissy has problems, with all those other hens pointing out her shortcomings all the time. As always Foggy is too much of a lumphead to listen to her and points her in the same direction he always did Henery Hawk. He tells her the Barnyard dog is actually a bachelor rooster in disguise. In return the dog shows Prissy how to build one of his ingenious traps. Even with a big ‘Rooster Trap' sign on it, that feathery nutcake of a rooster still helps her to complete it.

Not one of the most memorable Foghorn features. Robert McKimson takes his time in setting up and executing each gag, and therefore the laugh ratio seems to be much lower than usual. Prissy stands in for Henery Hawk quite well, and we do find out there's a whole football field on the farm, but that does not add much.
