Saturday Morning's Forgotten Heroes: Super Chicken vs. Wild Ralph Hiccup (1967)

From the original George of the Jungle series comes this Super Chicken short.

In one of the most absurd plots to come out of the Jay Ward studio, Super Chicken battles a cowboy hijacker named Wild Ralph Hiccup (Daws Butler doing a semi-mimic of John Wayne, but coming off as a cross between "The Duke" & Huckleberry Hound). Considering that Super Chicken's alter-ego, Henry Cabot Henhouse, was a loose parody of Henry Cabot Lodge (get the joke?), well, who d'ya suppose Hiccup was a parody of? Hint: He wasn't an outlaw.

Standard silliness. Rating: C.
