Storyline

A prize-fighting banty rooster, so slap-happy that he goes into a punching spree whenever he hears a bell, falls out of a truck and onto the farm where Foghorn Leghorn is in the midst of his usual sparring match with the barnyard dog. Foghorn and the dog use the fighter-rooster's manic punching against each other by ringing a bell once the rooster is within striking distance of their intended victim. Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

Stop, I say stop it boy, you're doin' a lot of choppin' but no chips are flyin' "

Whether the Foghorn Leghorn cartoons are among the best cartoons ever made is up for debate. I for one get much entertainment out of them, which matters more to me. Sock a Doodle Doo is one of Foghorn's better ones. It is not much different from what we usually see, apart from a new support character, so the ending for example is on the predictable side. However, the animation is fluid and lusciously coloured and the music as ever with Carl Stalling is dynamic and full of energy. The dialogue has the razor sharp wit that you'd hope, as with most of his cartoons Foghorn bags the best lines, and the gags are clever and never less than humorous. Foghorn is still engaging and distinctive, and Barnyard is a cunning foil. You may argue that these two have no reason to fight, the fact that they work so well together doesn't make that too much of a problem to me. The rooster(?) character counterpoints with them fairly well if perhaps rather bland in comparison. Mel Blanc does a sterling job as ever. To conclude, a fun and very good cartoon. 8/10 Bethany Cox
