More Foghorn Leghorn fun...
13 February 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

While Foghorn Leghorn is not my favourite of the Looney Tunes characters, he is always fun to watch and I take much pleasure in his cartoons. Foghorn himself is an interesting and distinctive character and while the stories are fairly routine they are brightened by the humour and the rapport between Foghorn and his supporting characters(Barnyard Dog and Henery being the popular ones). Weasel Stop is very entertaining, I prefer Weasel While You Work, but a lot of what I liked about that cartoon is here as well. The animation quality has some lovely colours but generally could have been sharper. However, the music is characterful, with a mix of arrangements of familiar tunes and original themes as always with Looney Tunes, and beautifully orchestrated. Weasel Stop is very funny. The dialogue is very witty, sharp and precise, not the most quotable but I had a good laugh and smile throughout. I liked the folksy sayings too, though some may find they might go over their heads. The gags come by thick and fast and have a good deal of imagination and freshness. Of the characters, Foghorn of course steals the show, even worse in his treatment of those around him than usual but also gets his just desserts in the end. The dog is a nice addition, and the weasel- looking more like a squirrel rat if I may say so- likewise. Mel Blanc is faultless as usual. In conclusion, not Foghorn's best for me but much fun to be had. 8/10 Bethany Cox
