No, I say nobody interferes with this rooster!
18 July 2016 | by See all my reviews

Once again, Miss Prissy tries to win Foghorn Leghorn's heart, while the immature Foggy keeps trying to avoid her, while Barnyard Dog decides to enter the scheme. By now it should be clear that Foggy is probably the least inclined of all the Looney Tunes to do anything productive: he either wants to play pranks - especially if they involve tormenting the dog - and sit around all day. "Of Rice and Hen" also makes clear that the other hens treat Miss Prissy like dirt. There are some true heels in the Warner Bros. animation universe.

Anyway, it's a funny cartoon. Foghorn Leghorn must have been one of the most enjoyable characters for Mel Blanc to voice.
