Storyline

Intending to catch a chicken for his dinner, little Henery the Chicken Hawk ventures onto the farm of the eternally feuding Foghorn Leghorn and barnyard dog. Foghorn tries to dump a load of concrete on top of the dog, but the chute for dropping the concrete suddenly extends itself to a position directly above Foghorn, who is covered over by the concrete and frozen in a "Thinker" pose. Little Henery attaches a rope to the cement-laden Foghorn and drags him home for a tough-to-chew chicken dinner. Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

Trivia

Just after Foghorn Leghorn gets rid of Henery Hawk by putting him on a tray and then tossing the tray away like a Frisbee, Barnyard Dog sees the tray and calls it "A little man from Mars!", which originated from Orson Welles's radio program 16 years earlier. See more »

The basics are good but it's too short and the hawk is the bird version of Scrappy Doo
7 February 2004 | by bob the mooSee all my reviews

The ongoing battle of frustration between Foghorn Leghorn and the farm dog takes a twist when a small chicken hawk arrives on the farm to try and steal chickens. When Foghorn ejects the hawk, the dog sends him back in having told him that Foghorn is just a big chicken ready for eating.

I do enjoy Foghorn Leghorn cartoons and don't see enough of them. This film starts promisingly enough but threatens it's own destruction when the chicken hawk arrives on the scene, proclaiming to all that he is an unnecessary third character that is being used as a plot device in a perfectly acceptable battle between Foghorn and the dog. That said he doesn't ruin the cartoon mainly because he is never more than a side issue.

The material is still pretty funny and my only real complaint is that it felt very short and ended suddenly with an unsatisfying punchline of sorts. The main characters are good as always; Foghorn is his `good ol'boy' self and is enjoyable for it - he has plenty of good lines here. The dog has no name here but is still a good adversary for Foghorn. As I have already said, the hawk didn't work for me but in fairness he doesn't really do damage to the short.

Overall this is a good cartoon if you like Foghorn Leghorn as he has some good banter and action with the dog. However it felt like it had been cut short when it was just getting going - but I guess that was down to the hawk suddenly being introduced (for no good reason) in the middle.
