Storyline

Foghorn's going fishing, but a fox has other plans for him. Posing as a racetrack tout, he suggests Foggy get a hunting dog and go hunting. Once the dog is gone, the fox comes after the chickens. One of them pulls the fox alarm, and the dog comes running back (too late). The fox next poses as a quiz show host, tricking Foghorn and the dog into blowing each other up. They go through another cycle or two of abuse before identifying their common enemy. They team up and go after him. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

"I need a pointer and that dog's got just the head for it. Pointed, that is."
29 December 2014 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

A sly fox manipulates Foghorn Leghorn into getting Barnyard Dog away from the hen house but his schemes backfire. I love me some Foghorn Leghorn but here the real star is the fox. He's a fun character. Love the racetrack tout routine. Wish I had a yellow plaid suit like that. The tout seems to be modeled after Sheldon Leonard's character from the Jack Benny radio and TV shows. Foghorn is fun but almost seems like a supporting character in his own short. Barnyard Dog is good, as is the little rooster who keeps pulling the alarm at the hen house. This is a pretty funny short but not one of Foghorn's best. The animation's nice and the voicework from Mel Blanc and Daws Butler is great.
