Dancers Animated hens
Shira's Feedback It's very silly. The depiction of dance isn't very Oriental, but it's entertaining.

My copy of Chicken a la King appears on a DVD compilation of vintage animations titled Felix the Cat & Friends: Neptune Nonsense. A rooster presiding over his harem of hens wears a turban and harem pants. The hens too are clad in harem pants pulled up over their tails and dance for him. Their dance isn't very Oriental - they parade about and do high kicks. I like it anyway because it makes me laugh.
