"But I can't help smelling chicken...and when I do smell it...I like it, I like it, I like it!"
19 February 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Foghorn Leghorn cartoons are always fun and Strangled Eggs is no exception. The animation is not as vibrant and the pace not as snappy as others in the Foghorn Leghorn series, and for Foghorn it's more talky than you usually are accustomed to with him and his cartoons. There is still much to like though, because the music is very upbeat and catchy enhancing the action and gags wonderfully. While there is more dialogue than usual, it is very amusing and witty stuff Henery's line about smelling chicken(in the summary) and Foghorn's final line being the standouts, and the gags are well-timed and clever, especially the cauldron "what's cooking?" and the egg grenade gags. Henery, sounding like a mix of Tweety(without the speech impediment) and Speedy Gonzales, is not as strong as he is when he is teamed with Foghorn and Barnyard Dog, but he is a good foil for Foghorn, who as usual steals the show. Mel Blanc doesn't disappoint, and Julie Bennett makes the most of her small role as Miss Prissy.

In conclusion, decent and fun but not one of Foghorn's very best moments. 7/10 Bethany Cox
