Miss Prissy or Prissy is typically described as an old spinster hen, thinner than the other hens in the chicken coop, wearing a blue bonnet and wire-rimmed glasses. The other hens describe her as "old square britches".

The premise of her cartoons are centered around the fact that the other hens are ridiculing Prissy. Her first appearance was in the 1950 short An Egg Scramble, the only cartoon featuring her and Porky Pig together, in which the other hens are making fun of the fact that she cannot lay an egg (because she think it's embarrassing). Her next appearances are centered around Foghorn Leghorn. In Lovelorn Leghorn (1951), she is set on finding a husband and in Of Rice and Hen (1953) she is looking to have children. However, in Little Boy Boo (1954) she is depicted as a widow with a child Egghead Jr. and with a much more extensive vocabulary in long sounding words than her trademark "yeeesss". A Broken Leghorn (1959) and Strangled Eggs (1961), featuring Henery Hawk. In these shorts, it is usually Foghorn who is pursuing Prissy for his own selfish needs.

Miss Prissy also appeared in the 1980 cartoon The Yolk's On You, and The Looney Tunes Show episode "The Foghorn Leghorn Story" voiced by Grey DeLisle. She played Mama Leghorn in Foghorn Leghorn's movie called "The Foghorn Leghorn Story."
