abstract
  • In Tiny Toon Adventures, he is the mentor and favorite teacher of Fowlmouth.
  • Foghorn Leghorn is a chicken.
  • Foghorn is voiced by Jeff Bergman on Tiny Toon Adventures. He first appeared in the second episode A Quack in the Quarks. At the beginnning, Foghorn was looking drowsy while Plucky was telling his story. He is also shown introducing the students to Frank and Ollie and gives Plucky permission to tour them around the school. In the Season 1 episode, Rock N' Roar, he appears as the teacher of a dog obedience school. He tries to teach Buster's pet dinosaur, Rover, but ends up in a lot of pain instead. In Psychic Fun-omenon Day episode segment, Class Cut Up, he is teaching a class on dissection, at one point he fires a starting pistol that ends up killing a live mallard duck, Hamton's frog is revealed to be Michigan J. Frog and he tells Foghorn about it, but when Michigan won't dance, he takes Hamton to the nurse's office to see if he's feeling alright. The next day, he assigns his students to dissect earthworms, and just like Michigan, Hamton's earthworm sings. In Fields of Honey, Foghorn is briefly shown at a meeting held by Babs at Acme Looniversity with a majority of the other Looney Tunes teaching staff. Babs is so intent and overzealous on them building a "really big theater" and show nothing but Honey cartoons so that people would come and watch because the "strange voice" (revealed later as Bosko) told her to do so, that she appears to be going mad (even drooling over the table). They promptly send her to the nurse's office to see Elmyra, who also concludes that she is had gone crazy. He appears briefly in the Wide World of Elmyra episode segment, Go Fetch, practicing tennis with a tennis ball machine. Barky Marky borrows the tennis ball machine to get revenge on Elmyra Duff. In the Son of Looniversity Daze episode segment, Plucky's Dastardly Deed, he is the teacher of Cartoon Calculus exams. He forbids Plucky from cheating, but becomes suspicious when Plucky appears in his desk drawer (he claims he forgot to sign his name). He appears in Plucky's nightmare, reminding Plucky that cheaters never graduate from Acme Looniversity. At the Looniversity the next morning, he informs the class that on his way home last night, he accidentally dropped his suitcase in a mud puddle, ruining all the exams. He makes all the students take them over again. Although Plucky knows he won't get a good grade by not cheating, he decides to retake the test the honest way. Foghorn is the librarian in the episode, Weirdest Story Ever Told. He tells Buster and Babs, who are talking to the viewers, to be quiet, (ironically being very loud) and tells the viewers, "Nice kids, but about as quiet as a train wreck." In the second act, Buster puts earmuffs on him so he can't hear him and Babs. Foghorn, along with Speedy Gonzales, appear as the hosts in the Son of The Wacko World of Sports episode segment, Acme Acres Summer Olympics. In A Ditch In Time, Buster and Babs encounter a dragon descendant of his who's holding a mideval descendent of Shirley hostage, and after defeating him, they use his fire to refuel their time machine. Foghorn appears briefly in Who Bopped Bugs Bunny?, where he is seen sitting on a chair alongside Henery Hawk (who is putting salt on him). Also, when Daffy is ungrateful that Plucky and Hamton tried to rescue him, Plucky mentions that he might get him to be his new mentor. Although he does not appear in the Here's Hamton episode segment, Milk, it Makes a Body Spout, he is one of Buster Bunny's many imitations in an attempt to get Hamton J. Pig to laugh so hard, milk squirts out his nose. In the Season 2 episode, Buster And Babs Go Hawaiian, Foghorn appears along with Fowlmouth and two other roosters during a luau. When Plucky accidentally burns his feet, Foghorn and the roosters think he started a new dance craze and join in. This is the only time we see Foghorn and Fowlmouth together. In Two-Tone Town, Foghorn appears at the beginning in a promo for Acme Oop!, in a clip from one of his cartoon. Foghorn performs on double bass in an orchestra conducted by Daffy and consisting of other Looney Tunes. Foghorn as well as the others in the orchestra are wearing light blue tuxedos and about to perform in front of a full crowd. Buster (in Robin Hood attire and intentions to steal the musical symbols) interrupts the orchestra, but a slightly annoyed Daffy denies his interruption and commands them to perform anyways. Giant musical symbols appear above the orchestra as they play, and Buster begins stealing the symbols, infuriating Daffy further. The angered duck battles Buster atop the symbols, as Foghorn and the others continue to play. Daffy loses the battle when he falls and Taz smashes in his head with his cymbals. Buster conducts a final note as Foghorn and the rest of the orchestra perform for him.

A leghorn is a breed of chicken, and foghorn describes the character's loud, overbearing voice. According to Leonard Maltin the character's voice was also patterned after a hard-of-hearing West Coast-only radio character from the 1930s, known simply as The Sheriff, on a radio program called Blue Monday Jamboree. The voice has similarities to that of another Mel Blanc voice: Yosemite Sam (a strictly Friz Freleng character).

  • Foghorn Leghorn is a large, white adult rooster with a Central Virginia accent and a penchant for mischief. He first appeared in 1946 in a Henery Hawk film entitled Walky Talky Hawky. All of the motion picture Foghorn Leghorn cartoons were directed by Robert McKimson, and the rooster vies with Taz, the Tasmanian Devil as the most popular character associated with the director. Many of the gags involved Foghorn and a canine nemesis (formally known as The Barnyard Dawg within Warner today, though on early model sheets his name is given as George P. Dog) engaging in one-upmanship through a series of pranks. Unlike other Looney Tunes rivalries—with the notable exception of the Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner series—Foghorn is often the initial aggressor out of self-amusement and subsequently on the 'losing' end of gags. Most common among them was Leghorn's taking up a plank of wood, while ambling along humming "Camptown Races" (the only intelligible words being "DOO-Dah! DOO-Dah!"), coming to the sleeping Dawg with his front half inside his doghouse, picking up his tail and rapidly whacking (almost always with eight strokes) his exposed rear end. Occasionally, Foghorn sings the song, but replaces "Camptown ladies sing this song..." with "Lump-teen-dozen and a-doo-dah day...". He does not sing any other part of the song, reverting to humming after the DOO-Dah's. Foghorn Leghorn loses his feathers very often in the episodes, usually revealing his bare skin or his boxers. The dog would give chase, usually with his leash still attached to his collar, until the leash stretched taut and his barking was replaced by an anguished howl. At times, when the dog would continue to bark, he would also yell, "Aaaaaahhhhh, shaddap!" In rare cases, it's the dog that starts the series of pranks; as such it is somewhat difficult to tell who started the feud. This gag was passed down to the Leghorns' grandson in Feather Bluster, where Foghorn was puzzled as to why the kid was behaving that way and the Dog was all too happy to remind him: "Ain't nothin' wrong with 'im, Foggy, 'cept that he takes after you." He was joined in a few episodes by a weasel called 'Bill' who initially attempted to eat him but ended up joining forces to outwit the aforementioned canine. Other recurring themes throughout the cartoons included the attempts of the diminutive Henery Hawk to catch and eat Foghorn, and the rooster's efforts to woo the widowed hen Miss Prissy (often by babysitting her bookish son, Egghead, Jr.). The rooster adopted many of Claghorn's catch phrases, such as "That's a joke, I say, that's a joke, son." The references to Claghorn were obvious to much of the audience when the Foghorn Leghorn cartoons first premiered, but like many of the references in WB cartoons of the era, they have since become dated. A toddler version of Foghorn made appearances in short music videos of Baby Looney Tunes. He starred in only one episode of the show, in which he was trying to fit in with a gang of cool roosters and employed the help of Tweety and his friends before Lola Bunny suggested to just be himself, which came in handy when Barnyard Dawg chased the cool roosters. A leghorn is a breed of chicken, and foghorn describes the character's loud, overbearing voice. At its most raucous, it sounds similar to that of another Blanc voice: Yosemite Sam (a strictly Friz Freleng character). Both parts of the name suggest the association with "Senator Claghorn." Foghorn Leghorn made numerous appearances in Tiny Toon Adventures in numerous roles as Acme Loonervesity's Professor of Hound Teasing, Baseball Coach and an obnoxiously loud Librarian. Foghorn made a cameo appearance in Who Framed Roger Rabbit, in the final scene at Marvin Acme's factory with several other Looney Tunes characters. The rooster appeared in two Chuck Jones shorts of the 1990s, Superior Duck (1996) and Pullet Surprise (1997). He was part of the Tune Squad basketball team in Space Jam, and was a croupier at Sam's casino in Looney Tunes: Back in Action. In addition, Foghorn appeared in commercials for Kentucky Fried Chicken and Oscar Meyer and most recently, GEICO insurance. A character named Mr. Leghorn, based on Foghorn himself, made a pair of appearances in Loonatics Unleashed.
