Crowing Pains is a cartoon in the Merrie Melodies series that was released in 1947. The cartoon, directed by Robert McKimson, stars Henery Hawk, Sylvester, and Foghorn Leghorn and The Barnyard Dawg.
This is one of the latest-released cartoons in the pre-1948 package to enter the public domain, as United Artists (successor-in-interest to Associated Artists Productions) failed to renew the copyright in time. It is also the only cartoon starring either Foghorn Leghorn or Sylvester to enter the public domain.
It will be featured, fully restored, on the Looney Tunes Golden Collection: Volume 6.
Foghorn convinces Henery that Sylvester is a chicken. Foghorn sticks Henery in an egg and sticks it under Sylvester.
- When this cartoon aired on the now-defunct WB channel, the part where Barnyard Dawg is hanging from a tree branch by his leash and Sylvester, armed with an axe, is about to swing it at him, was cut, making the cartoon jump from Barnyard Dawg chasing Sylvester to Foghorn telling Sylvester, "Let's bury the hatchet, but not in anyone's head."
