Woody is shooting pool at a farm house when one of his pool balls rolls into a nearby henhouse. He takes the ball back but must battle with the hen who thinks the woodpecker is taking one of her eggs. Woody makes several attempts to get the ball back from the protective poultry finally disguising himself as a macho continental rooster whom the hen falls for causing Woody to retrieve his ball. But it doesn't last long. The hen gets wise prompting Woody to trip spilling all the hen's eggs all over himself and getting conked with his own pool ball! Written by

Of all the non-Warner Brothers cartoon characters, Woody is by far and away the one that comes the closest to being as totally insane as the Warner family of cartoon "actors." Like his counterparts in the other studio, Woody does not shy away from dirty tricks and violent action to get his way - and he is as unrepentant as he is unrelenting. Solid Ivory is my favorite of the series - full of sight gags - he lures the hen into danger by dangling a pair of nylon stockings under her beak, causing her eyes to pop out in the shape of enormous ladies legs. He is silly - faking a French accent while "courting." He is vindictive - hooks a corncob up to the electric light socket and feeds it to her. He calls names - "You old BAG!" In short, he's a sadistic monster - never losing audience support. Finally, the production values are excellent. Don't miss it.
