“I used to like chicken more than beef, but that was hen and this is cow”

"That was hen, this is cow”—an animal pun on “that was then, this is now”—is a jocular one-liner that has been printed on several images. “That Was Then, This Is Cow” was a title of an episode of the French cartoon television series The Why Why Family in 1996.

“I used to like chicken more than beef, but that was hen and this is cow” was posted on Reddit—Oneliners on November 25, 2017.


Wikipedia: The Why Why Family
The Why Why Family (French: Les Kikekoi and also known as Saban’s The Why Why Family) is a French cartoon television series for children, which originally aired in 1996, written by Annabelle Perrichon and François-Emmanuel Porché and produced by Saban Entertainment and CinéGroupe. Later, in 1998, the show was broadcast in the United States by Fox. Character designs and comedy elements emulate vintage cartoons.
