A Turkey Day Obscurity
Rhode Island Red was by George Lemont, and ran Sunday only from October 28 1962 to June 26 1966. The star of the show was Red the chicken, the remainder of the dramatis personae being an assortment of other barnyard denizens.
The strip was renamed to Feeny Farm with Rhode Island Red on September 19 1965, then shortened to just Feeny Farm after November 7 of that year. I guess the chicken just wasn't making it in the leading man role.
