All the best, hard-to-find cartoons of yesteryear

All about ‘Foghorn Leghorn’


'Toons:

Against a background of the Barnyard Dawg and Foghorn setting each other up for pratfalls and injuries, we again meet Henery the baby chicken hawk, who is calmly carrying out a series of tasks that will catch him a chicken. At each turn, Foghorn helps him, not realising that the chickenhawk’s ultimate purpose is to catch him.

This cartoon features a young rooster who is up to date with the latest fashions of 1963. A hep cat, he is constantly playing ‘modern’ music and chasing the girls. Thrown out of his own chicken yard, he persuades Foghorn that he is an orphaned rooster. Foghorn adopts him as his own.

This is the first episode with the highly popular baby chicken hawk. Henery is constantly trying to catch a chicken, but first, he has to learn what a chicken is!
