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>

Trivia

After Foghorn Leghorn & Barnyard Dog team together at ridding the farm of the continuous trouble-making fox, then they do a very quick & short spin. After their spin is over, Foghorn Leghorn is on top of Barnyard Dog, wearing an English sports jockey, with a bugle & blows the opening notes of a fox hunt, as if they were about to go on a fox hunt.

Crazy Credits

After Foghorn Leghorn and Barnyard Dog, teamed together & got rid of the trouble-making fox just after it ran away, Foghorn Leghorn then said "That's only the beginning". The smaller chick corrects him, saying "Un-huh", to Foghorn Leghorn and Barnyard Dog & then flipped over its newspaper, that reveals THE END, on the other side of it, then the musical closing credit begins.

Where do they sell yellow plaid suits like that?
19 February 2004 | by (Rijswijk, ZH, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

When measuring Foghorn Leghorn shorts by their co-stars, ‘Fox-Terror' comes out a winner, as it features two inspired new characters. First up is the terror of the title, who got his paws on the most incredible plaid suit that shows the same pattern which ever way he turns. The second new character is a tiny panic stricken rooster in charge of pulling the Fox Alarm cord.

For once Foghorn and the Barnyard Dog (or ‘Mule' as Foggy affectionately calls him) are not interested in hurting each other at all. The rooster only wants to go fish (figure that) while the dog is very adamant about guarding the chickens for a change (shame he misunderstands that tiny rooster all the time). It is that foxy master of disguise who continually tricks them into hurting each other.

This Foghorn feature has a lot more surreal gags than usual. For instance characters change their outfits simply by spinning round (years before Lynda Carter made it hip). This leads to nearly everybody wearing one of those plaid suits and a surprising ending (compared to some other Leghorn shorts I could mention).
