The Past Is All Foggy To Me Now
A Foghorn Filmography
Foghorn Leghorn's Filmography Timeline

This barnyard blabbermouth got his start in 1946 as a part of the Henery Hawk cartoon "Walky Talky Hawky". His supporting role in this academy-award nominated short launched him on a career of his own. The final WB feature cartoon in which he starred was Banty Raids, released in June 1963. Foggy went on to appear in an assortment of movies and TV spots after the original WB cartoon studio was closed in 1964 - most recently involving a 1999 MCI commercial.

Below is a list of the original Warner Bros Foghorn Leghorn cartoons with some key information included about each production including dates, plot summaries, and the cast of characters. There is also a section outlining his various cameo, movie and TV appearances. If you have any comments, corrections or additions, your feedback is welcome.

Walky Talky Hawky
08/31/46
Foghorn Leghorn
Henery Hawk
Barnyard Dawg
Academy award-nominated cartoon. Foghorn was first seen in this cartoon and was merely intended as a costar for Henery. Walky Talky Hawky introduced several item which would emerge as running gags to be used throughout future Foghorn Leghorn offerings such as a Foghorn vs. Dawg "prank war", a loud "ahhh shudyap!", Dawg running out of rope, and Foghorn claiming not to be a chicken (he says he is a horse). At the end, Henery winds up dragging off a horse, Dawg and Foghorn since "one of these things has got to be a chicken".
Crowing Pains

Foghorn Leghorn
Sylvester
Henery Hawk
Barnyard Dawg
Sylvester and Dawg are enemies in this cartoon, who become entangled with Foghorn's attempts to confuse Henery. Once again the young and inexperienced Henery is out looking for a chicken but isn't sure what a chicken looks like. Henery decides to determine who is a chicken (Foghorn Leghorn, Sylvester or Dawg) by watching to see who crows at sunrise.
The Foghorn Leghorn
10/09/48
Foghorn Leghorn
Henery Hawk
Barnyard Dawg
Henery's pop
After Henery's pop tells him that Foghorn isn't a chicken, but is a "loud-mouthed shnook", Henery goes looking for a real chicken. In a bit of a reversal of the usual plotline, Foghorn spends the rest of the cartoon trying to convince Henery that he is a chicken. In the end Henery decides that he'll take Foggy home for dinner - not caring whether he's really a chicken or a shnook.
Henhouse Henery
07/02/49
Foghorn Leghorn
Henery Hawk
Barnyard Dawg
A standard Foghorn Leghorn cartoon with the standard elements: Henery Hawk looking for a chicken, several verses of Camptown Races, Foggy and Dawg having a "prank war" in which Foggy gets ahead early but eventually loses, Foggy sends Henery after something other than himself (ducks, turtles), and in the end Dawg and Henery work togther to bag Foggy.
The Leghorn Blows at Midnight
05/06/50
Foghorn Leghorn
Barnyard Dawg
Henery Hawk
This offers many items in the standard Foghorn Leghorn formula: Dawg and Foghorn in prank wars, Henery looking for a chicken, but unsure what a chicken is, Foghorn telling Henery that Dawg is what he wants (a pheasant). One notable exception from the usual is that Foghorn doesn't sing "Camptown Races", but instead does "Old MacDonald" and (briefly) "A Hunting We Will Go". One highlight involves Foggy putting fake "vanishing creme" on Henery, who then thinks his is invisible as he proceeds to sneak up on Dawg.
A Fractured Leghorn

Foghorn Leghorn
Barnyard Cat

Foghorn tells Henery he is too small to want Foggy, and Dawg offers to help for a bone which he can get from Cat for a fish, etc. Foggy inadvertantly helps Henery get what he needs and he drags off the rooster in the end with Dawg's help (the bonehead technique).

Sock-a-Doodle-Do
05/10/52
Foghorn Leghorn
Kid Banty
Barnyard Dawg
After falling off a truck, the pinfeatherweight boxing champ, Kid Banty finds himself at Foghorn's farm. Anytime the Kid hears a bell he comes out swinging, even punching a cow after the cowbell rings (a cowpuncher?). This leads to a series of gags in which Foggy and Dawg try arrange for a bell to ring when Banty is near the other. One rarity in this cartoon is that in addition to Camptown Races, Foggy hums the "This is the way we wash our clothes" tune.

Foghorn can't stand that Prissy seems to like someone else and Dawg's plan fools Foghorn into competing for her. In the end Prissy gets Foggy for her husband. A very well executed cartoon with good dialog and even an original song by Foggy about Dawg.

Mr. Cackle
This cartoon puts Foghorn into the role of babysitter for Junior, the son of Widder Hen. As it turns out, Junior is a born trouble-maker who spends the day pulling pranks on Foggy, who eventually decides that the kid is trouble. (Note: In my opinion, this is perhaps the worst Foghorn cartoon.)
