"Nice girl, but as sharp as a sack of wet mice"
22 February 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The Foghorn Leghorn cartoons are always fun to watch. I don't think they are quite masterpiece status but the best of them are enough to make your day whether it was hard or not. Lovelorn Leghorn is not one of the best of the series, some of it is a little slow with a couple of gags feeling a tad too drawn out and the story is not that much of a surprise. However, the animation is fluid and vibrantly coloured, and the music is upbeat and enhances the action, humour and every character expression perfectly. As always with Foghorn cartoons, there is some sharp witty dialogue(Foghorn as always has the best lines). "Your only chance to get a husband is to trap one" is a classic. The gags do work despite them being rather lengthy in development, the rooster trap gag is for me the highlight of the cartoon. Foghorn steals the show, being as interesting and distinctive as ever and Barnyard Dog is a great foil, I always love how he is mix of butt-of-the-joke and craftily vengeful. Both characters are flawlessly voiced by Mel Blanc. Miss Prissy(ably voiced by Bea Benaderet) is a worthy replacement for Henery, though with a different kind of motivation. All in all, solid fun if not quite among the best of the series. 8/10 Bethany Cox
