Miss Prissy

Posted in WB Cartoon Companion on March 22, 2004

    Spinster hen who has her eyes set on Foghorn Leghorn in a series of McKimson cartoons. These include Lovelorn Leghorn (1951), Of Rice and Hen (1953) and Little Boy Boo (1954). Most of the time, her dialogue is limited to a long, drawn out “Yaeessss”, though not in the same way as Frank Nelson.

    It is my conjecture that Miss Prissy could well be the daughter of Emily, the foolish man-chasing chicken in some of the Freleng 1930s cartoons. Like mother, like daughter.
