Storyline

A prize-fighting banty rooster, so slap-happy that he goes into a punching spree whenever he hears a bell, falls out of a truck and onto the farm where Foghorn Leghorn is in the midst of his usual sparring match with the barnyard dog. Foghorn and the dog use the fighter-rooster's manic punching against each other by ringing a bell once the rooster is within striking distance of their intended victim.

Cockfights
18 February 2004 | by (Rijswijk, ZH, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

The relationship between Foghorn Leghorn and the Barnyard Dog might well be the strangest in the entire Warner stable, as there is just no natural reason for a rooster and a dog to fight. The fact that both of them seem to enjoy hurting each other equally makes it hard to feel much affection for either of them. To make matters worse, they always try to manipulate each and every visitor to their farm purely to get at each other.

While Foggy and B.Y. are trying to out doodah each other, Kid Banty, the world's pinfeatherweight Fighting Rooster champ accidentally arrives on Old Macdonald's farm. The Kids' problem is that each time he hears a bell, he starts throwing punches. It does not make any difference to him if it's a cow bell, an alarm clock, a triangle or a grandfather clock.

Naturally Foghorn forgoes his game of hopscotch to make use of the Kid's potential. At one point he even convinces Barnyard Dog to be Kid Banty's sparring partner. But eventually Barnyard always gets the better of Foggy's by building another elaborate contraption. In fact, Barnyard comes up with some of his most inventive traps ever in "Sock a Doodle Do", involving flying saucers and a Hula Hula hut. You can bet all the gags ring a bell for Banty.
