Hoboken Chicken Emergency
The emergency of the title is caused by a hen named Henrietta. The problem: she weighs 266 pounds! When the father of Henrietta's young owner (A Christmas Story's Peter Billingsley) makes plans to sell Henrietta, she goes berserk, wreaking Disney-like havoc on downtown Hoboken. Mayor Dick Van Patten goes to desperate lengths to solve the problem, even unto hiring a professional "chicken catcher" (Gabe Kaplan). Arlene Golonka co-stars in this 55-minute family comedy, originally telecast November 19, 1984 on the PBS series Wonderworks. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
