Foghorn Leghorn's final cartoon and one of his best
17 February 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

While not my favourite Looney Tunes character- either Bugs Bunny or Daffy Duck- Foghorn Leghorn is still an interesting and distinctive one and also one that I appreciate more as a young adult than as a child 10+ years ago(same I feel about Pepe LePew also). Banty Raids was his last cartoon, and at the same time one of his best. Okay like with most Foghorn cartoons you do know exactly how the story is going to map out. But knowing that isn't enough to ruin the enjoyment of watching them, especially when it is paced in such a jovial manner that it is impossible to be bored for one second during it. The animation makes Banty Raids one of the better-looking Looney Tunes cartoons of the 60s, while more fluid in character designs in earlier entries there is a lot of vibrant colour and detail. The music is catchy and has a great deal of energy, while the dialogue is razor sharp and extremely witty- some repetition but that is a unique part of the Foghorn cartoons' charm- and the gags imaginative and as funny as you'd expect. Barnyard Dog and the rooster(who refreshingly is a counterpoint that reflects the time in which Banty Raids was made) are vastly entertaining characters, but as usual it is Foghorn who steals the show. Mel Blanc's vocals are characteristically brilliant. Overall, a lot of fun and one of Foghorn's best despite being his last. 9/10 Bethany Cox
