The View Welcomes Barbara Back With Singing Farmer & Dancing Chickens (Did You Expect Anything Else?)

Barbara Walters made her return to The View this morning after suffering from chickenpox, and was welcomed by a “surprise” musical performance by a man dressed as a farmer and three others in dancing chicken suits.

It has become unofficial tradition for comedian Mario Cantone to do goofy musical numbers whenever the ABC talk show welcomes back its most senior host from her various hiatuses.

In light of Walters’ recent bout with chickenpox, Cantone dressed up this time as a farmer and sang — with help from dancing “chickens” — a doo-wop song all about her illness and chicken-related puns.

So, to summarize: The View welcomed back Walters with a farmer and his four dancing chickens.

Did you really expect anything less?
