Henry the Rooster's wife, Chicken Pie, is a rolling pin-wielding bully. She forces Henry to do all the work around the house, as she sits around eating corn candy (as opposed to candy corn) and reading "How to Lay an Egg" by Bob Hope. When Chicken Pie finds a mouse in her candy, she is terrified and of course orders Henry to get rid of it. Henry manages to trap the mouse in a cage, and is near to drowning it, when the streetwise rodent makes a deal with him. In exchange for his life, he'll stick around and scare the missus. That way Henry can be king of the barn as nature intended. When Chicken Pie learns that Henry and the mouse are colluding, she sets out to get rid of the pest herself. Written by
