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") .

One of my personal favourites of the newer instalments
28 June 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I say this as a big Looney Tunes fan, I absolutely loved Pullet Surprise and not only is it one of my personal favourites of the newer instalments of Looney Tunes cartoons, but I also prefer it over some of the original Foghorn Leghorn cartoons. Admittedly the cartoon is a little formulaic in the story structure and how Pete Puma always falls for Foghorn's tricks, but that said I also found the original cartoons with Foghorn Leghorn formulaic too for similar reasons. Pullet Surprise does very well in respecting the style of the originals, not only in the fast paced gags, cracking pace and the hilarious dialogue(" Now I can run faster than that with high heels on... I ain't saying I wear high heels", "don't get too close son, I'm a heart breaker" and "A whole LOTTA lumps") but also in the indirect reference to Rabbit's Kin with "try something easy like hunting rabbits" "nuh-uh. No rabbits". Foghorn Leghorn is just a sheer delight here, and Pete Puma is a more than worthy foil and that alone makes a somewhat refreshing change. The voice acting is one of the better voice over jobs in these new instalments, Stan Freberg is excellent as Pete Puma and Frank Gorshin(who I admittedly found too deep and abrasive in intonation in From Hare to Eternity, that cartoon is still good though) nails Foghorn. In conclusion, wonderful and one of my personal favourites of the newer Looney Tunes cartoons. 9/10 Bethany Cox
