| Cracks me up every time I see it
Foghorn Leghorn may not have been one of my favourite animated characters as a kid, but from an adult perspective I find him very entertaining and he is certainly one of Looney Tunes' most distinctive characters. The Eggcited Rooster is one of his better cartoons, if you want a story that is different from usual with Foghorn Leghorn you won't find it. But that doesn't really matter when the story is as well-paced and always fun as it is here. And yes there is some Indian stereotyping, but I for one didn't find anything to be particularly offended at, and it wasn't as if it was being blatantly used the entire time. Whatever reservations you might have, there is still much to enjoy. The animation is great, anybody who likes their colours vibrant, their backgrounds detailed and never sparse and their characters drawn well will not be disappointed at all with the animation of The Eggcited Rooster. The music always adds so much to the Looney Tunes cartoons, and it still does here. I always love with Looney Tunes how the lush orchestration meshes so well with every gag and every sound, and how there is a mix of recognisable tunes and music written especially, which is to heard wonderfully in the music of The Eggcited Rooster. There is some really genius writing as well, there is plenty of sharp wit and lines like "This boy is making more noise than a couple of skeletons on a tin roof!" are genuinely hilarious. Not just that, but there are also some imaginative sight gags, the best one- and the one that always cracks me up- is when the doghouse explodes and you see Barnyard Dog with a fried egg on his stomach. Mel Blanc was one of few voice actors to voice multiple characters in one cartoon alone and be consistent every time, and as you'd expect his voice work is stellar with plenty of energy, inspired dialogue delivery and verve. All in all, really funny stuff and one of my favourites from Foghorn. 9/10 Bethany Cox
