Shots Moment from "The Foghorn Leghorn"

I've always loved this sequence from "The Foghorn Leghorn". It starts as a consequence of this:

and degenerates into the following:




























Foggy is a complete passive character in the fight. Look at him, motionless, sort of a dead body, with the tongue out of his beak, dissacrated by that last kick too.
By the way, it's no mistery now that I'm rediscovering McKimson's first output (the good one), from the beginning to the early 50s. There are some incredibly funny shorts among them, you can notice great timing or funny visual/verbal gags or great animation or marvellous background, rarely all things together. I've rewatched "The Egg-cited Rooster" today: there's some terrific animation of the dog done by Rod Scribner!

These early Foghorn Leghorn shorts are truly great. I think the series jumped the shark around Feather Dusted, when the animation became soulless, and gags got weaker.

My personal favourite must be this one, Henhouse Henery and the always hilarious Fractured Leghorn.

I've always liked that Foghorn beating too. Great animation!
You know that Foggy does deserve it after tormenting Dawg so often.
The scene with Foghorn commenting on the trunk is nicely timed as well. The multicolored smacks on Dawg are a nice touch. (I believe it's the same cartoon?)

These are hysterical. Thanks so much for sharing! Is there any where to view this clip in action? I was laughing out loud at every single panel, can't wait to draw from these grabs.

May I please add your website to my website blogroll? It's under construction at http://www.kellytoon.com

Thank you!

Those are from one of my favourite cartoons of all-time. It's still a pleasure to watch them. The animation is so clear.

Foghorn Leghorn! Gosh, I miss this rooster soo much. I used to watch a lot of Looney Toons when I was a kid but the popularity seemed to have died down.

*sigh.

Wow, when you take it frame by frame, you can see how violent he is to Foghorn, never really noticed that.

I have two old 16mm cartoons that date back to the 30's. They aren't perfect but should be preserved. Contact me if you are interested. rrc_1940 at yahoo.com
