A collection of clips is not a good cartoon
19 March 2004 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Foghorn Leghorn and his dog companion are old and retired from the henhouse game. They sit on the stoop and watch their grandchildren chasing each other around - putting them in mind of themselves of their earlier days together.

This cartoon looks like it will be one of those rather horrid `replace characters with child equivalent' films, but it soon reveals itself to be a `remember when' clips film instead - neither particularly desirable types in my opinion. The kids' stuff is mainly used as a prologue and epilogue to allow the main characters to have something to do their reminiscing against. The clips they show are quite funny but, having seen some of the films they come from, are much better in the context of the film they are shown in - although I know there are funnier gags from the series and I did wonder why they chose one or two of the ones they did.

In clip mood, Foghorn and the Barnyard Dog are both as funny as they can be, however their old characters are a little annoying and are giving way too much screen time considering all they are doing is acting as hosts of a mini clip show. Their grandchildren are OK and are mercifully kept in the background for the majority of the film.

Overall this is a cartoon that is really just a mini clip show. It is funny because the original cartoons that the gags are lifted from are funny - but it is worth hunting down those rather than watching this by itself.
