Henpecked Hoboes is a 1946 MGM cartoon directed by Tex Avery. It is the first George and Junior short.


George and Junior are craving a chicken dinner, but George's clever plans to catch a chicken are constantly destroyed by Junior getting in the way. Eventually, the two settle on dressing up as a rooster to lure away a hen from a barn, who's being watched by her eagle-eyed mate. Then, they feud about who gets to be the chicken, instantly giving the idea away to the hen. George kicks Junior miles away, as usual, in frustration. However, the hen then kicks George miles away. This gag ends when her mate kicks her miles away. Overall, George and Junior had no chicken for dinner, on account of their bickering.
