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
Once again, blustery old Foghorn Leghorn tries to woo Prissy - he
doesn't want to spend a cold winter alone - but there's a catch: he has
to befriend her intellectual nephew. What follows just goes to show why
it's so funny when nerds meet hicks; I sure couldn't understand any of
those charts! Anyway, "Little Boy Boo" is one of the many cartoons that
remind us that nothing was too outlandish for the Termite Terrace
crowd. They created ultra-zany situations and were proud of it. And
they, I say they had every reason to be.
Still, I can't help but wonder why Foghorn has to go through the sorts of things that he experiences.
Probably my all time favorite cartoon. Yields, at the end, a line which
I would like to display on my wall permanently--a statement of
philosophy, life experience, irony. But I can't quote it because that
would spoil it for you.
Okay, here's the plot. Leghorn goes courting the Widow Hen in search of a warm perch for the coming winter. She requires that he make friends with her little son, the egghead genius. The rest is history--comic history.
If you like Warner Bros. cartoons, and have missed this one, I urge you to seek it out at all costs. Yields at least three classic lines (which keep coming up for me in more or less appropriate circumstances.)
