This post is all about smiling and chuckling. Enjoy a few minutes of classic humor including some links to some short clips of classic Mel Blanc. Laughter makes you younger, and strengthens your immune system also – enjoy for your health sake, after all winter is coming!
Mel Blanc was an amazing voice artist, and together with the other gifted people at Warner Bros I have enjoyed many a chuckle at the antics of Foghorn Leghorn.
Whether he was torturing that poor dawg, matching wits with the chicken hawk, or proving himself a chicken instead of loud-mouthed schnook. click here Foghorn is always unique and hilarious. vimeo click here
Foghorn Leghorn: Looky here, son, I’m no loud-mouthed schnook.
[Hits dog as he talks]
Foghorn Leghorn: This is a dog, not a chicken. Chicken’s don’t look like dogs. Who told you this was a chicken, son? Nice boy, but doesn’t listen to a thing you say. You got a bum steer, son. I’m a chicken, not a schnook. You’re wrong, son.
Barnyard Dawg: [Kicks Foghorn] Schnook!
Henery Hawk: Schnook.
Henery Hawk: Hey, he called you a chicken.
Foghorn Leghorn: That’s what I’ve been – I say, that’s what I’ve been telling you, boy! I am a chicken!
[Henery hits Foghorn on the head with a shovel and drags him away]
Henery Hawk: He talked me into it.
Foghorn Leghorn: I’m just a loud-mouthed schnook.
Henery Hawk: Chicken or schnook, in our oven he’ll look good.
Henery Hawk: Still tryin’ to prove you’re a chicken, eh?
Foghorn Leghorn: [nods]
Henery Hawk: Schnook.
Little did I know that he was also knowledgeable in the mysteries of marriage or is he?
Foghorn Leghorn: Let me guess, dearie. You’re looking for a husband.
Foghorn Leghorn: Well, you’re going about it the wrong way, sister. You don’t bat ’em on the bean with a rolling pin. That comes later.
I miss the voice of Mel Blanc. I remember watching those cartoons in the mornings and laughing at his silly antics. He was one of the greats along with my forever favorite Jimmy Durante.
Thank you for your comment. You were right Jimmy was one of the best but underappreciated. Thanks for visiting.
Now I’m retired I appreciate foghorn’s outlook on life more, the pleasure of simplicity.
Always appreciate your posts Dave, stay well
