| For me, another one of Foghorn's best
The Foghorn Leghorn cartoons always have given me much pleasure, they are routine but also very funny and witty with one of Looney Tunes' most distinctive characters. Raw! Raw! Rooster! is immensely enjoyable stuff in all areas. The animation is crisp and filled with vibrant colour, and the music has much character and is sumptuously orchestrated. The story is told efficiently and never feels bogged down in any way. The beginning is very funny, and the ending is effective in how different it is compared to usual. The writing is full of the sharp wit that we associate with Foghorn's cartoons, the similes and repetitions continue to be quite endearing, and while the gags don't present much of a surprise in terms of outcome they are still hilarious. I was especially taken by Red's ukulele rendition of Freddie the Freshman, priceless is definitely the right way of summing it up. Foghorn is charismatic and never annoying, and Red- part Jimmy Durante, part- Jackie Gleason- is one of his best foils(making you wish he was used again). The vocals of Mel Blanc and Daws Butler are impeccable, their voices are ones you can recognise anywhere and you can never get enough of their energy. Overall, enormously enjoyable, one of Foghorn's best and one of my favourites of his certainly. 9/10 Bethany Cox
