There have been many great cartoon foes through the years. Among the best known are Itchy vs Scratchy, Tom vs. Jerry and Bugs Bunny vs. Elmer Fudd. When the next chapter of cartoon rivals is written The Family Guy’s Peter Griffin vs. Ernie The Giant Chicken will surely be given its due among the greats.
The Peter vs. The Chicken rivalry as described by Wikipedia:
The giant chicken is a half-chicken half-man that often fights with Peter Griffin. He is voiced by Danny Smith. The fight scenes are often very long and dramatic, involving the destruction of large sections of Quahog. Peter wins most of the time. This rivalry begins when Ernie gives Peter an expired coupon. In “No Chris Left Behind,” the recent fight is ceased when Peter and Ernie forgot what they have been fighting about and Ernie takes him and his wife Nicole to dinner. When it came to paying the bill, Ernie and Peter ended up in another fight which ends with Peter knocking Ernie out with a pan. In “Big Man on Hippocampus,” Ernie ends up attacking an amnesiac Peter when he insults his lawn. A hit in the head causes Peter to remember who he is and states that he doesn’t remember making peace with Ernie. Ernie is shown as Boba Fett in the Star Wars episodes. In the episode “New Kidney in Town”, Dr. Hartman tells the Griffins about his failed cloning attempt, which resulted in a violent man-sized chicken. That prompts Peter to tell Dr. Hartman that they need to have a talk.
