Foghorn Leghorn: What's the big... I say, what's the big idea chasin' my worm? You're a cat, son. Cat's don't eat worms. You're takin' the food right outta my mouth! I don't go around chasin' mice!

Foghorn Leghorn: Stand up boy, you're trippin' over your own feet. Now you stay away from worms and I'll stay away from mice. That's fair and square, and if you'd stop all your arguin' and jawin', you'd see my side of it!

Absolutely hilarious, one of Foghorn's best cartoons
14 April 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Foghorn Leghorn is a very funny and distinctive character. As far as Looney Tunes characters go, I prefer Daffy and Bugs but like Pepe LePew I appreciate Foghorn and his humour more as a 20 year old than I did as a child. A Fractured Leghorn is one of his absolute best. The animation is very nicely done, with fluid backgrounds, vibrant colour and a slightly thinner-than-before Foghorn is well drawn. The cat is not quite so much but still good enough. The music is similarly terrific, it's very beautiful and energetic and enhances the humour and action wonderfully. A Fractured Leghorn is hilarious, as heard in his dialogue Foghorn has such a sharp and quick wit that you're in non-stop laughter mode throughout. Seeing how he knocks over the cat constantly and bets him in who gets the worm makes for some of the best physical comedy of any of Foghorn's cartoons. The story is simple, and also more surprising and less routine than some of the outings with Barnyard Dog(every bit as great, don't get me wrong), the energy similarly is great. Foghorn is hilarious as usual, the cat is a good crafty character without saying many words(he only has one line) and the worm is cute. Mel Blanc is top notch as Foghorn, he is very loud and not very subtle here but I just marvel at his effortless manic energy and the ability to make each piece of dialogue even funnier than they already are with his line delivery. To conclude, if you love Foghorn, you will find A Fractured Leghorn a pleasure. 9/10 Bethany Cox
