the egg and she
While I've usually seen Prissy cast as Foghorn Leghorn's love interest, here she gets a lead role. As one of the hens on Porky Pig's Hammond Eggs farm, she can never lay an egg. So, another hen sticks an egg under her and Prissy believes that she has finally laid one. Her elation melts, however, when Porky sends the egg off to get sold. Even after Prissy finds her egg, she ends up hiding out with a criminal! Will this woman ever find true happiness?! So maybe Prissy can't quite carry a cartoon like Bugs or Daffy can, but I would say that "An Egg Scramble" shows her to be more assertive than I've seen in her appearances as Foghorn Leghorn's love interest. Maybe she needed to be alone in the world to show her true strength. As for Porky, it seems like they actually could have cast a non-star as the farmer, as I like to see the porker's roles developed more so that he can really turn into his reactive self.
But overall, it's worth seeing, if only once.
