Foghorn feuds with an ugly dog
31 December 2015 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Decent Foghorn Leghorn short, directed by Robert McKimson. The story has Foghorn helping a weasel try to get into the chicken coop, for no other reason than to tick off the guard dog. The dog, by the way, is not Barnyard Dog but a new one voiced by Lloyd Perryman. The weasel (and this basic plot) was used more than once in Foghorn cartoons. It always seemed like the Looney Tunes version of a crackhead jonesing for a fix. This one also includes the famous "numbered feathers" bit. Solid voice work from Mel Blanc and Lloyd Perryman. Lively music from Milt Franklyn. The animation is nice and colorful. Can't say I care for the character design for the dog, though. It looks like an old dirty carpet or something. It's not a great Foghorn cartoon but it is enjoyable enough. The weird country dog and the crackhead weasel keep things interesting and Foghorn gets some funny lines.
