Foghorn, Barnyard and Daffy all together in the same cartoon? What fun!
7 April 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

All of Foghorn's cartoons are great fun to watch. The High and the Flighty is no exception, it is quite possibly one of his best actually. And it is not just because of the presence of Daffy, though he is one reason why. The animation is lovely to watch. The backgrounds are fluid and detailed, all the characters are well drawn and while there is vibrant colouring the use of darker shades make sure that it isn't ever too saturated. The music again enhances the action wonderfully with lush and lively orchestration and a perfect matching of gestures, facial expressions and sounds. The writing is sharp and witty, Foghorn's word repetition for example is still endearing, and the gags- revolving mainly around Daffy selling Foghorn and Barnyard violent items- imaginative and highly amusing. The story is fast paced and always maintains interest, it was nice with the inclusion of Daffy to have something different from the norm. Even if the ending is like a slightly different variation than what you see in other cartoons from Foghorn, in terms of humour it is hardly a let down. All three characters are on top form. Daffy is in greedy mode, which not many people like- though this is a different type of greedy than seen in his outings with Speedy Gonzales, and a more subtle type- though his effortless charisma really shines through. Foghorn excels also just by what he does best without it ever becoming tiring, and Barnyard likewise both as the butt of the joke and a cunning and vengeful barnyard dog. Mel Blanc is fantastic as you'd expect. To conclude, a lot of fun. 9/10 Bethany Cox
