Storyline

A prize-fighting banty rooster, so slap-happy that he goes into a punching spree whenever he hears a bell, falls out of a truck and onto the farm where Foghorn Leghorn is in the midst of his usual sparring match with the barnyard dog. Foghorn and the dog use the fighter-rooster's manic punching against each other by ringing a bell once the rooster is within striking distance of their intended victim.

this brings up the issue of using someone as a mere means
17 February 2007 | by See all my reviews

When I took an ethics class, one of the topics that we discussed was using someone as a means to an end. It contradicts ethical practice to involve someone in a process so as only to benefit oneself (more commonly referred to as using someone as a mere means). In this sense, Foghorn Leghorn and Barnyard Dog violate ethical practice in "Sock a Doodle Do". When a boxing rooster accidentally falls out of a truck and ends up on farm, FL and BD use him as the fighter in their eternal fight; you see, whenever he hears a bell, he immediately starts boxing.

I admit that I'm probably reading way too much into this cartoon. After all, it was probably just intended as quick entertainment to be shown before a feature film (and it certainly is entertaining). But I always like to see whether or not I can derive a greater issue from these cartoons. If I'm wrong, then I am - to quote Foghorn Leghorn - as wet as a used tea bag and as sharp as a bowling ball.

All in all, a pretty good cartoon, even though "How many lumps do want?" was pulled out of the Bugs Bunny vehicle "Rabbit's Kin".
