"A mother? How corny can ya get?"
As part of his never-ending feud with Foghorn Leghorn, Barnyard Dog steals an ostrich egg and places it under a sleeping Foghorn. When the rooster awakens and sees the egg, he inexplicably believes he's its mother. The egg hatches, of course, and the rest of the short is a protective "mother" Foghorn fighting with Barnyard Dog who keeps insulting the little ostrich's looks. A pretty silly (stupid, to be honest) premise but it does have its moments. Most of the humor comes from Barnyard Dog's wisecracks. The animation is bright and colorful. The music is lively and upbeat. Good voice work from Mel Blanc. The ostrich is not the most inspired Looney Tunes creation and I can't say that I cared for the way it was drawn. Not the best Foghorn short by a long shot but watchable enough.
