The basics are good but it's too short and the hawk is the bird version of Scrappy Doo
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.
