Storyline

Foghorn has egg-sitting duty while his wife plays cards. Henery Hawk, dressed as an Indian ("Me last of mo-hawk-ens!") comes by as Foggy is looking for someone to relieve him. Foggy gets Henery to egg-sit for a little while, but the little hawk gets impatient. Foghorn sends him off with a "hen grenade" which explodes under the dog (leaving him covered with a fried egg). The dog helps the hawk steal the egg, and calls Foghorn's wife. The egg then changes hands several times; Foghorn's wife comes along and beans him with her rolling pin. As the final insult, Henery scalps Foghorn with his tiny tomahawk. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

These, I say these guys got seemingly no reason to fight, but it's funny that they do.
19 June 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Somehow, I say somehow the worst things always seem to befall Foghorn Leghorn. In "The EGGcited Rooster", he has to sit on his wife's egg and not leave it, or else. But when Henery Hawk - dressed as The Last of the Mo-hawk-ens - enters the fray, Foggy naturally sends him to harass Barnyard Dog. Guess what all ends up happening! Why did Foggy always have the worst luck? Who knows. The point is that his blustery attitude, and desire to play nasty tricks on Barnyard Dog, always get the better of him. And Henery's pride at being a chicken hawk - in this case, it means a chicken who eats other chickens, not a warmonger who never served in the army - always benefits him.

So it's a pretty funny cartoon, despite the stereotyping of Indians. As it's not available on any video or DVD that I know of (at least not yet), you can watch it on YouTube.
