    No relation to the character of the previous entry. This was the silent, poker-faced little chick who appears in a handful of Robert McKimson’s Foghorn Leghorn shorts. His unusual tastes in reading material include books such as Splitting the Fourth Dimension. Deliberately or not, he manages repeatedly to make a complete idiot out of Foghorn Leghorn, who is usually attempting to teach the boy some simple game or trick that he improves on in amazing ways.

    Filmography follows. All directed by McKimson.

  • Little Boy Boo (1954)
  • Feather Dusted (1955)
  • Crockett-Doodle-Doo (1960)
