A real standout for a late McKimsom entry
8 April 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's very refreshing to see a 1960 Bob McKimson cartoon that's on a par with the concurrent work of his directing colleagues. The generally average-quality artwork takes nothing away from the great comedy in this short.

Elvis and Pappy make far better adversaries for Foghorn Leghorn (that foolhardy ignoramus) than they did for sly ol' Bugs in "Backwoods Bunny." Here they're chicken hawks, rather than buzzards, and as birds of prey they are quite formidable adversaries for the rooster. As characters, Elvis and Pappy make superior chemistry as their losses are shared (somewhat) equally with Foggy. The greatest moment is when Foggy (almost) tricks them into a duel, but they turn around and blast his beak off, prompting him to exclaim, "First time somebody shot MY mouth off!"
