Foghorn Leghorn

Tuesday, November 19, 2013

Welcome to the barnyard, and humble abode of Foghorn Leghorn Quotes. My name is in fact, Foghorn J. Leghorn, and I will be your host and narrator during your visit here on the farm.

First and foremost for your entertainment pleasure, allow me to introduce my fellow cast members.

Beginning with the barnyard hussy and lady of the house … hen house that is, the lovely Miss Prissy, affectionately known around here as the ‘widow hen.’ Next, that conniving canine and unsuspecting recipient of most of my pranks, my co-star, George P. Dog, better known as the“Barnyard Dawg.”

We proceed on to that hip rooster from the ‘yard’ next door, the ‘crooner’ who fancies himself quite the ladies man, that “banty” beatnik with the goatee … “like uh, link us man, link us.”Last but certainly not least … in his own mind anyway, ‘that boy’ who still proclaims, “I’m a chicken hawk!”I give you Henery, “nice kid but he’s gettin’ too big for his britches.”

Supporting cast members include: Daffy Duck, Sylvester, Kid Banty, Egghead Jr. Elvis & Pappy, plus my old college chum, Rhode Island Red.

All of this would not have been possible were it not for the illustrative genius and gentleman who gave me my start back in ’46.’ The man responsible for the 28 cartoons in which your host and friends appear … creator & director, Mr. Robert “Bob” McKimson. And of course, the gentleman who gave me the voice & dialect you’ve come to know and love, my friend and confidant, Mr.Mel Blanc.

So, herein lie the ‘looney’escapades of my cohorts, “myself included” as we take that stroll down memory lane, and recapture the laughter and funny moments of times past. Click on a link or page above, watch Foghorn Leghorn cartoons on my YouTube,channels, and be prepared to laugh to your heart’s content.

As an aside, when you’re finished here and find yourself in need of more laughs and stress reduction, head on over and see my rowdy cartoon counterpart, Yosemite Sam… He, I say, ‘he’ll be waitin’ for ya.’

And now as I head off to chemo, I am leaving you with these thoughts!!!

Take care! I guess that I I am becoming somewhat of a bore because of repetition, but I really enjoy the past! I have enjoyed TV next to SP as I have had to slow down but I just normally seem to get pulled to the past and when I was growing up! Maybe because there is truth in the words that children are the the happiest beings in the universe! And at this stage that is what I need!

So on whatever level you shared this Blog I say thank-you and maybe these are old and too simple for today’s young generation but personally I like to think that I am passing on our “culture” when life was very simple! After all we saw much of it in Black and White not 3D!

    These are great! Today's humor on the most part is not funny at all...some is downright vulgar...where did the world go? I love your blogs!

    Hi Jean! If talking about the past is laughter, bring it on! I loved this blog. I am reading it at the end of the day instead of the morning (long day) and it made my evening. I LOVED the one about the med limitations! It is HILARIOUS because it is SO true!! emoticon I will send this one to Kathy too. Love you, Jean! emoticon emoticon

    I have fond memories of watching those cartoons growing up. My dad watched them with me sometimes, and Foghorn Leghorn was his favorite.
I watched them in black and white also; we didn't get a color TV until I was in high school.

  Today's cartoons just don't compare with what we were lucky enough to watch when we were young. Thank you, I say, thank you for this trip down memory lane.

    Oh, thank you, thank you, thank you! You started my day with laughter! I hadn't thought of them in so long. I need to see if I can find a DVD of some of those cartoons. I know you will be just fine...your humor and positive attitude is 99% of how you do in life. God bless you!

    I'll be thinking of you and praying for you today while undergoing chemo. Your attitude is fantastic. God blessed us with memories and if yours gives you pleasure from old TV shows or cartoons that's wonderful. It would be horrible to go day to day and not remembering anything on our journey.
