The Looney Tunes Show – “The Foghorn Leghorn Story” Recap
“The Foghorn Leghorn Story” centers on Daffy getting a movie role as Foghorn Leghorn for a movie titled “The Foghorn Leghorn story”. What makes this episode so enjoyable is just the reactions back and forth between Bugs, Yosemite Sam, Daffy, and Foghorn Leghorn.
For example, Daffy can be one of the biggest jerks and yet Foghorn easily considers whatever he is saying to be a joke and nothing more. Things become even more chaotic when Daffy and Foghorn actually get into a fist of fight over what it means to be a rooster, adding plenty of comedic effect for this episode.
The other side of the plot has to do with Bugs and Yosemite Sam finding a rare vase under their backyards. I was very impressed how the writers handled this one. They nicely gave Yosemite Sam a chance to have a conflict with Bugs by selfishly wanting the rare vase. In the end of the episode, the two stories connect hilariously as everybody ends up fighting with each other.
“The Foghorn Leghorn Story” gave me some good hopes for this show. The character interactions here were just spot on and none of the writing felt lazy or mediocre for once. My favorite moment probably had to be Daffy acting out Foghorn’s most emotional life moments and making them so absurd. That or Yosemite Sam blowing up from pure joy of finding the golden turtle that will make him rich. This is the type of writing I really hope the writers keep sticking with. This show doesn’t need realism, it just needs thirty minutes of great comedic fun that all viewers can happily enjoy. All in all, The Looney Tunes Show finally hit a mark of getting itself a nicely done looney episode.
