Henpecked Hunters is a 1946 American animated short film produced by Michael Shires Productions and released by Republic Pictures, starring Matthew Mouse and Felix Fox.


Matthew and Felix want a chicken dinner. Matthew's plans for catching a hen are constantly sabotaged by Felix's detrimental assistance. The duo take on more than they can chew as they attempt to get their hands on an alluring hen. Matthew dons a rooster suit to lure away the hen from her guardian rooster, who's sent rocketing to the North Pole! While the rooster walks back to civilization, Matthew and Felix wreak havoc upon each other dressing up as a worm (that is eaten by the hen) and a giant chick who is mothered to near-death in an attempt to get the alluring female onto the dinner table. At the end Matthew, after one too many screwups, kicks Felix hard into the air, only for the hen to deliver a hard kick of her own to him sending him flying. Satisfied, she wipes her hands but feels a hand tap on her shoulder and turns and is shocked to find the rooster has returned and less than happy about his trek back home and motions for her to bend over and gets his revenge and delivers several kicks to the hen's backside kicking her all the way back to the barn.
