| For me, Foghorn's weakest
This saddens me as I like Foghorn Leghorn and find his cartoons very entertaining. Is it among the worst of Looney Tunes? No, the likes of Devil's Feud Cake, Pre-Hysterical Hare and See Ya Later Gladiator are worse. But The Slick Chick was disappointing. Does it have good things? Oh yes, absolutely. The best assets were Mel Blanc's voice work and the music. Blanc, apart from Foghorn sounding more subdued than usual, is as exuberant and versatile as ever, while Milt Franklin's music(though not as good as Carl Stalling's) is beautifully orchestrated and rhythmically energetic, merging with the visuals very well. The animation is also decent, it has been more colourful before but it is beautifully drawn and detailed. Foghorn doesn't really shine in The Slick Chick, here he is the butt of the joke, which is against his persona as usually he's the craftier character, and the charmingly sharp wit doesn't come out. His chick counterpoint(Junior?), aptly likened to Dennis the Menace but worse, takes on the crafty role but manages to be both annoying and bland. He and Foghorn have none of the chemistry that Foghorn has with Barnyard Dog and Henery Hawke, and the only entertaining thing about him is how remarkably like Bugs he sounds. The story is predictable and the pacing is not as crisp as before, I felt that some of it dragged. And apart from the amusing delivery of Foghorn's final line the ending falls flat. And sadly, The Slick Chick is not very funny. The gags felt drawn out and tired, and while the dialogue has its moments like Cackle's description of Junior and Foghorn's final line it was lacking in freshness. All in all, has its moments but Foghorn's weakest cartoon. 4/10 Bethany Cox
