Looney Tunes Super Stars Foghorn Leghorn & Friends
Birds of a feather gotta laugh together. "You're in luck fans - I say you're in luck - luckier even then when I drew a fifth ace!" Foghorn Leghorn, that every-courtly barnyard banterer, has something to crow about with these 15 remastered cartoons.]]>

C'mon Warner! What we want to see is good quality original format transfers, not deceptively advertised, and presented at a reasonable price for something a half-century or so old that you keep flogging for all it is worth. Why not stop treating us like idiots and put out the 'Ultimate Foghorn Leghorn Collection' - 28 classic cartoons, attractively priced and presented! Or is that simply too hard for you? Looking at all the grumbling from fans about previous collections, one would think you might have learned a few more lessons by now. It seems you just don't care.
I don't know if there's a fear of racism, or classism, or what the objections are to the original cartoons, but I surely do wish that WB would realize that their target audience are grownups and we don't need them to censor stuff for our sensitive little minds.
been anxiously awaiting a collection since noticing that a lot of Foghorn cartoons were not included in the
wonderful 'Golden Collection' series of releases. The way it should be done, by the way.
There are 9 Foghorn cartoons and 6 "Friends" cartoons, which include a 1957 Honeymousers cartoon sending
up the 'Honeymooners' TV series. The Foghorn 'toons are from 1954 to 1964. The cartoons are presented in
your choice of either Standard or Widescreen version and is a total of 97 minutes of animation. The sound
is presented in Dolby Digital Mono in English only. There are no special features on this disc.
[Quick sidebar. If you want a very good book that will list ALL the cartoons and give a run down of each one,
including accolades garnered, buy "Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies" by Jerry Beck and Will Friedwald. A
terrific reference guide to the Warner Brothers animated gang.]
Anyway, receiving the DVD in the mail I noticed that it was given the cheapo-cheapo case treatment and no
insert. This gave me pause. Having seen the outside of this case in a store I would not have bought it. The
case to me says, 'throwaway'.
Upon watching these cartoons over the course of the next week I discovered that most of these are NOT
funny. A chuckle here, a chuckle there, but never a chuckle chuckle everywhere (and sometimes 'nary a
chuckle anywhere!). Indeed, I share the same criticism as other reviewers; Warner Bros. put out a bunch of
latent releases that were mining all the Foghorn Leghorn conventions of earlier years. Problem is that most
of the 'toons included in this release are just not that funny.
There are some classic comebacks and observations from Foghorn but overall I am very disappointed with this
release and could have gone without it. I can understand helping us all become completests but how about
sprinkling more of the classic Foghorn in among the cute or less funny ones. It's called sequencing and there
is not much of that here. Actually there isn't much of anything here.
All but two of the early Foghorn (Pre-1955) are missing and, as far as I can tell, unreleased on DVD. 'Crowing
Pains' (1947), 'Hen House Henry' (1949), The Leghorn Blows At Midnight (1950), A Fractured Leghorn (1950),
'Sock- A- Doodle Doo (1952), 'Egg-Cited Rooster' (1952), 'Plop Goes The Weasel'(1953), and 'Of Rice and Hen'
(1953) are still in the vaults. Interestingly, most of those were released on VHS tape over a decade ago. Go
I gave this "Barnyard Bigmouth" release 3 stars because there are a couple of very good pieces in the group
and the "friends" that are included are very amusing, especially the Honeymousers episode. Foghorn Leghorn
lovers steer clear of this one until they release the rest in a more appropriate format. Let's hope the Foghorn
Leghorn Blue Ray will get a better treatment.
I didn't expect to get every single Foghorn Leghorn cartoon but you get more of the old hen and her genius son, dog, chicken hawk and weasel. When they say friends, you are in good company with two cartoons of the spanish crows hunting grasshoppers, one Honeymooners mice where Ralph paints Morton invisible, ma & pa mouse adopting a kitten and the gophers looking for their veg-e-tables just to name a few.
They are "remastered" and look good but not up to the eye-popping Golden/Platinum Collections level. Other than a couple of ok Foghorn Leghorn shorts, this set is 97 minutes (not 300, Amazon) of really funny, tunes!
