"Oh, Doggy, you're gonna git some lumps. Oh, Doggy, you're gonna git some bumps"
11 April 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Foghorn Leghorn, a character I appreciate even more than I did 10+ years ago, and his cartoons are always entertaining. Of Rice and Hen is no exception, though I do think that Foghorn has done better. The animation has been cleaner and sharper before and since, though the colours are very nice to look at, Prissy while essential to the plot is a little bland compared to Foghorn and Barnyard and I'll be honest in saying that I am starting to get tired of seeing Foghorn smacking Barnyard with a wooden object on the bottom(it was fun a certain number of times, repeated in what feels like every cartoon of his it does feel tiresome). The music is energetic and beautifully orchestrated, Foghorn's song is one that gets in your head in a good way. The writing is very witty and funny, Foghorn's dialogue is as sharp as ever and the repetition is never annoying. The visual gags also make a good impact, the sight of Barnyard disguising himself as a rooster is priceless. Barnyard is a cunning foil though also showing a somewhat caring side towards Prissy. But it is Foghorn who steals the show, helped by a story and writing that compliments his personality. Mel Blanc's voice work as always is sterling. All in all, a solid Foghorn Leghorn entry that just falls short of being great. 7/10 Bethany Cox
