Sylvester meets Foghorn
27 October 2008 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

As far as I know, "Crowing Pains" is the only cartoon in which Sylvester appears alongside Foghorn Leghorn. As is the case in many of Foggy's cartoons, the blustery rooster tells Henery Hawk - a self-proclaimed chicken-hawk (which in this case is not a warmonger who refused to serve in the armed forces) - that another character is a chicken. Believing that Sylvester (who earlier had teased Barnyard Dog) is the chicken, Henery goes after him. Following a series of goof-ups in every direction, Henery decides to wait until dawn to see who crows: Foghorn, Sylvester or Barnyard.

It was certainly an interesting trick to cast the screen's most famous slobbery cat with the most famous rooster. Any combination of characters is bound to create a cool situation (Robert McKimson later cast Foggy with Daffy Duck in "The High and the Flighty"). But its probably best that FL and Sly only co-starred this one time; I can't see them as repeated co-stars. Worth seeing.
