Perfect partnership between Foghorn, Sylvester and Henery
16 January 2010 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

This Looney Tunes cartoon is very entertaining from start to finish. Whilst some of the animation isn't always that great as Foghorn is a little overweight here, the music is good, the gags come by thick and fast and the short essentially is funny.

The characters are still their fun and likable selves. While Sylvester is suitably slobbery and Foghorn witty, it is Henery who steals the show, and their partnership is perfect. Barnyard Dog also gives an entertaining performance. The marvellous vocals of Mel Blanc really made Crowing Pains so fun to watch especially, and the story was cool. I admit there is a fair amount of violence and poor Sylvester gets the most of it.

All in all, it is fun, helped by the perfect performances from the Looney Tunes characters and most importantly from Blanc. 9/10 Bethany Cox
