One of the better Foghorn Leghorn cartoons
28 June 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

My only real gripe with Little Boy Boo is that it is perhaps too short. Other than that, it is enormously entertaining and one of the better Foghorn Leghorn cartoons. The story does have some formulaic elements to it admittedly, like the wooing of Miss Prissy, but because a lot of Foghorn Leghorns cartoons are formulaic in structure I have come to accept it. Even if I considered it a flaw, which I don't this time round, a lot of things do compensate. The animation is colourful and lively and the music has an infectious energy to it. The writing is very funny, with three of Foghorn's lines being classic particularly the one about not playing baseball, and the physical comedy also amuses. Foghorn is a lot of fun, and the nephew character while nerdy isn't annoying thankfully. Mel Blanc's voices as they are consistently are superb. In conclusion, fun and one of the better entries of this set of cartoons. 9/10 Bethany Cox
