Storyline

Foghorn's annoying college buddy, Rhode Island Red, comes for a visit and then won't leave. What's worse, he muscles in on Foggy's harem and reverses most of Foggy's traps and tricks. A football session with an exploding casaba melon backfires when Red returns the pass; the exploding golf balls only explode when Foghorn hits them, and the fist in the camera only pops out when Foggy examines it to figure out what went wrong. But Foghorn finally gets the last laugh with a phony telegram about an inheritance and an exploding bowling ball as a parting gift. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Finally a believable villain for Foggy
19 February 2004 | by (Rijswijk, ZH, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Sometimes a new character arrives on Old Macdonald's Farm that takes up so much of Foghorn's time that he just plain forgets to kick the Barnyard Dog around. Of course this is a good thing, as the unexplained hatred between rooster and dog was starting to get rather tiresome anyway. And why should he bother with that dog in the first place when he has a whole harem of good looking chicks craving for his attention?

After receiving the news that his old college chum Road Island Red is coming to visit, Foghorn panics and takes some amusing measures to detour him. The Jimmy Durante like Red turns out to be an even bigger practical joker than Foghorn and the Barnyard Dog combined. What's more, he plays the ukulele, which the chicks really dig. So for once Foggy has a legitimate enemy and turns into a Wile E. Coyote clone trying to get rid of Red with the use of Acme products.

The two fighting cocks try to out do each other while recounting their old football days and playing some golf. Apart from the Acme products, there seems to be a useful crate of explosives behind every other tree on this farm. Unfortunately you can see all the punchlines coming a mile off, resulting in every explosion being a letdown. This leaves the end result rather a sloppy mess, as Red would say.
