Did You Know?

Foghorn Leghorn's line "Open the window, Richard!" is a reference to saxophonist Jack McVea's 1947 hit song, "Open the Door, Richard." In High Diving Hare (1949), when Yosemite Sam bangs on a closed door demanding that Bugs Bunny open it, he looks and speaks to the audience, saying "Did'ya notice, I didn't say Richard?"See more »

Walky Talky Hawky (1946)

**** (out of 4)

Hilarious short has a small chicken hawk being told by his father that he needs to eat chicken so he sets out to find out. He comes across Foghorn Leghorn who convinces him that a dog is really the chicken. This here is a wonderful short that remains one of the absolute best to ever come from Warner. There are so many classic moments here but the real highlight is simply the fact that all three characters are so downright funny and lovable in their own right. There are many funny moments here but for me the highlight will always be the scream that Foghorn lets out once the dog finally gets a hold of him. That scream itself is one of the funniest noises to ever come from the studio. As you'd expect the animation is terrific but the final line of the film is just priceless.
