Storyline

Foghorn's going fishing, but a fox has other plans for him. Posing as a racetrack tout, he suggests Foggy get a hunting dog and go hunting. Once the dog is gone, the fox comes after the chickens. One of them pulls the fox alarm, and the dog comes running back (too late). The fox next poses as a quiz show host, tricking Foghorn and the dog into blowing each other up. They go through another cycle or two of abuse before identifying their common enemy. They team up and go after him. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Crazy Credits

After Foghorn Leghorn and Barnyard Dog, teamed together & got rid of the trouble-making fox just after it ran away, Foghorn Leghorn then said "That's only the beginning". The smaller chick corrects him, saying "Un-huh", to Foghorn Leghorn and Barnyard Dog & then flipped over its newspaper, that reveals THE END, on the other side of it, then the musical closing credit begins.

Fox molded
14 August 2007 | by lee_eisenbergSee all my reviews

"Fox-Terror" has something that I never expected to see: Foghorn Leghorn and Barnyard Dog as friends. In this case, a fox is doing everything possible to keep BD out of the way while he attempts to snatch the chickens, so he gets FL to inadvertently harm BD. Meanwhile, a tiny rooster sounds an alarm but BD never sees the fox and ends up thinking that the little guy is just playing pranks. Until someone takes everything a little too far. Overwhelming? Well, with some of the gags that they pull - namely the suit-changing - you'll never find it bad.

OK, so this cartoon was probably a place-holder between the really great cartoons (1957 also saw the release of "What's Opera, Doc?" and "Birds Anonymous"). But it's always a pleasure to see Foggy do his folksy stuff. Worth seeing.
