| Like, Foghorn Leghorn has a worthy departure. You dig?
Foghorn Leghorn, who had been Robert McKimson's main cast member for seventeen years (along the way, McKimson had also created Hippety Hopper and the Tasmanian Devil)*, made his final appearance in 1963 with "Banty Raids". Whereas most of the cartoons have Foghorn Leghorn and Barnyard Dawg engaged in an endless feud, rather detached from anything else in the world, here Foggy adopts a beatnik rooster as a son. While the little guy prefers to get slinky with the hens, FL immediately seeks to teach him how to play practical jokes on BD. But then of course BD has some tricks up his sleeve...

It's worth noting that by this point, the Looney Tunes had truly passed their prime, and so it was probably good that the Termite Terrace crowd was retiring the characters. FL and Marvin the Martian both ended in 1963 (while Porky Pig, Elmer Fudd and Pepe Le Pew had already departed during the two previous years); Bugs Bunny, Tweety, Yosemite Sam and the Tasmanian Devil made their final appearances in 1964; Sylvester made his final appearance in 1965; Daffy Duck, Speedy Gonzales, and Road Runner/Wile E. Coyote had all departed by the end of 1968; Warner Bros. ceased cartoon production in 1969. In other words: that was all, folks (except for the compilation films).

Anyway, it was great while it lasted, and this is certainly a worthwhile cartoon.
