A couple of feathered surprises
18 February 2004 | by (Rijswijk, ZH, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

For those who think that all Foghorn Leghorn cartoons follow the same pattern, especially the ones involving Prissy the lovelorn Hen, this one has some surprises in store. One of them is that Foggy never sings "Camptown Races", as he's learned a new Calypso song instead. Even more surprising is that Foghorn does something noble for a change!

All the hens have new born chicks except Prissy (she's to much of a D.R.I.P.), and most of those spiteful hens sound exactly like Betty Rubble. When Foghorn saves Prissy from committing suicide, she tries to impress him with a Mexican dance. However, Foggy belongs to Bachelors Anonymous and is more interested in spanking the dog. We finally learn where he gets those planks from: he simply rips them off the fence.

When the old hound dog decides to help the little old gall out, for once he uses psychology instead of brute force. After all these years of Foggy trying to make him out for being something other than a dog, it is amazing to see Barnyard dress up as a rooster of his own accord! The sight and sound of the dog playing a love struck rooster has to be seen to be believed and naturally this proves to be Foghorns undoing.
