Barnyard Dawg's relative?
7 July 2008 | by lee_eisenbergSee all my reviews

One thing that strikes me about Robert McKimson's Foghorn Leghorn short "Weasel Stop" is the absence of Barnyard Dawg (who has on ongoing feud with FL). In his place there's an inattentive mutt whom a weasel - one of the recurring characters in FL cartoons - plans to trick in order to steal chickens. Foggy is only too happy to help the little guy (just to play his usual practical joke on the barely reactive hound). However, things don't go quite as planned...

This was far from my favorite Foghorn Leghorn cartoon; I usually like it when FL and BD get to carry out their regular shenanigans. But in the grand scheme of things, just about any, I say just about any Foghorn Leghorn is good Foghorn Leghorn. Worth watching, that is.
