Henny Penny, sometimes known as Chicken Little, is a European folk tale about a chicken who tries to warn his companions that the world is coming to an end by proclaiming that "the sky is falling!" Modern versions of the story include a 1943 animated short produced by The Walt Disney Company, an adaptation in the HBO animated series Happily Ever After: Fairy Tales for Every Child (with Sharon Stone, Henry Kissinger, and Jesse Jackson), and Disney's feature length computer-animated film in 2005 (with Zach Braff).
