I don't think that George Washington ever really chopped down a cherry tree
9 July 2008 | by lee_eisenbergSee all my reviews

I remember how, when I was young and watched Robert McKimson's Foghorn Leghorn short "A Fractured Leghorn", I heard Foggy ask the anonymous cat "Who do you think you are?! George Washington?!". I of course didn't understand, as I had never heard the story about our first president chopping down a cherry tree and confessing. Of course, I suspect that it was a made-up story, part of our national myth. Analogies include stories in the Soviet Union about some glorious peasant rebelling against the landowners and often getting martyred.

But anyway, this is a pretty funny cartoon. As always, FL spends much of the time talking (as many southerners would do), until finally the cat has a statement of his own; since that was his only line, I would call him a feline version of Bill O'Reilly.

All in all, an entertaining one. Foghorn, I say Foghorn Leghorn is definitely an admirable character. Likable, that is.
