Storyline

Pete Puma is trying to raid the henhouse Foghorn Leghorn is guarding; Foggy decides to have some fun with Pete. He tells Pete what he really wants is a Venezuelan Racing Chicken which has unfortunately run back to Venezuela. Pete runs there and back in jig time. Next, he really wants an Irish Wrestling Chicken, which turns out to be a rope tied to a bull's tail. When Pete makes off with a chicken, nest and all, Foghorn grabs the chicken, then says Pete's found the rare Mongolian Disappearing Chicken, and the only way to make it reappear is tap dancing; Pete dances into a hole; Foggy drops an anvil on Pete's head ("a whole lotta lumps!") . Foggy walks away, chuckling at his cleverness, when a genuine Irish Wrestling Chicken pins him ("I'm glad I didn't show him the Norwegian Exploding Chicken") .

In honor of the late Stan Freberg, I watched his second cartoon as Pete Puma-Pullet Surprise
7 April 2015 | by (Baton Rouge, LA) – See all my reviews

Several years ago, I watched Rabbit's Kin-a Bugs Bunny short. It was notable as the only one to feature one Pete Puma as his adversary. In fact, it was the only one to feature Pete Puma, period, during that classic WB cartoons era. I did mention in my review of that cartoon that he later appeared in a future short made a few decades later that I wanted to see. So now that the voice of that character, Stan Freberg, passed away recently, I finally watched that one-Pullet Surprise-on YouTube. He's paired with Foghorn Leghorn this time. Mel Blanc had died by that time so Mr. Leghorn's voice is done by Frank Gorshin here. Anyway, this was quite funny both verbally and visually though perhaps maybe a bit rushed. Still, I laughed throughout heartily. Darrell Van Citters did pretty well as director. So on that note, I recommend Pullet Surprise. R.I.P. Mr. Freberg
