Decent enough, but doesn't really have much of a point
16 April 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Foghorn Leghorn may not be my favourite of all the Looney Tunes characters, but he's funny and stands out from the rest. He's also like Pepe LePew in the sense that I appreciate him more now than I did. Most of his cartoons are thoroughly entertaining and have good re-watch value. Feather Bluster was a decent one from him but didn't see him at his best. The animation is lovely in the clips shown and in the reminiscing parts, it's colourful, detailed and never looks jerky. The music has lots of energy and is lushly orchestrated though I do marginally prefer Carl Stalling's work over Milt Franklin's(that is not knocking Franklin at all as he was a fine composer indeed). Both Foghorn and Barnyard Dog in the clips and in old form are on top form, and their children are pleasant additions but not given much to do(though that was most likely the point). Mel Blanc does a bravura job in what is essentially a vocal one-man show, doing six voices and giving a different voice and personality when needed. There isn't anything terribly wrong actually with the writing, it is funny and sweet but overall I did miss the sharp wit and manic energy that I usually see, it's these that makes Foghorn's cartoons so fun. The gags in the clips are also good, but I agree that none used are the best gags of their respective cartoons(it actually wasn't until recently when I finally understood the significance of the green tongue gag though), though the one used for the All Fowled Up clip came closest. I like all three cartoons used a lot and all three should be seen in their entirety on their own for the gags to have an even stronger impact. The story is a nice idea, the reminiscing parts are touching but deserved more time because a lot of it was more an excuse to string along the clips. At around the 6 minute mark, Feather Bluster did seem rather short for a Foghorn cartoon, if it was about a minute-and-a-half longer I think it would have given the parts where Foghorn and Barnyard are reminiscing a more powerful punch. Overall, it was nice enough and I was entertained but at the same time I didn't really see much of a need for it. 6/10 Bethany Cox
