I promise, I've got more "random and weird" stuff on the way. Plenty of it. But I figure it's my public duty to bring attention to the great cartoons that inspired all of the fun merchandise, ads and miscellany that this blog is based on. Jon's post on Foghorn Leghorn selling hot dogs reminded me of something...just how funny Foghorn Leghorn is.
I am not as tuned into who drew every scene and every drawing in cartoons as some are, but I do know that the collective effort of them at Warner Bros. was better than just about all the others in the golden age. I do know that Robert McKimson directed every Foghorn Leghorn short, and nearly all of them were amazingly funny. I don't understand why so many critics pick on McKimson. Rather than go into analyzing and/or defending McKimson, I'd rather just show one of his best cartoons. Foghorn Leghorn and Henery Hawk star in "Hen House Henery', which, I believe, is the first time "Camptown Races" was used as Foggy's iconic theme song.

Pick on McKimson all you want. But remember, he did this, ok?
