Leghorn Rooster Courts the Widow Hen
12 September 2005 | by (Montana, U. S. A.) – See all my reviews

Probably my all time favorite cartoon. Yields, at the end, a line which I would like to display on my wall permanently--a statement of philosophy, life experience, irony. But I can't quote it because that would spoil it for you.

Okay, here's the plot. Leghorn goes courting the Widow Hen in search of a warm perch for the coming winter. She requires that he make friends with her little son, the egghead genius. The rest is history--comic history.

If you like Warner Bros. cartoons, and have missed this one, I urge you to seek it out at all costs. Yields at least three classic lines (which keep coming up for me in more or less appropriate circumstances.)
