Somewhat formulaic, but fun
28 June 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I do agree that the Foghorn Leghorn cartoons follow a very similar formula in terms of story, that in mind I quite like them still, finding them entertaining. The Leghorn Blows at Midnight is not an exception to the somewhat formulaic concept, I admit the story here is by the numbers and the cartoon is a little on the short side. On the other side, I quite like the character of Foghorn Leghorn, sure he is not the best Looney Tunes character(Bugs or Daffy in my opinion) but he is with his distinctive voice and catchphrases, zany antics and his ability to trick the other characters especially Henery(not only tricking him in this cartoon into thinking that Barnyard Dog is a pheasant but in another cartoon of his, Crowing Pains I think, he tricks him into thinking Sylvester is a chicken using ventriloquism at the end) a memorable character in his own right. The animation is quite nice, the colours and backgrounds are colourful and the characters are well-drawn, while the music is lively, the writing witty and the gags well-timed. Mel Blanc's voice work further adds to the fun. All in all, formulaic but fun. 8/10 Bethany Cox
