Foghorn Leghorn is the name of a character appearing in numerous Warner Brothers animated cartoons, especially The Looney Tunes Show. He is a large adult rooster with a strong southern accent and is prone to mischief.

    • Joey: Ah, I was just in the bathroom, and there's mirrors on both sides of you. So when you're in there it's like you're peein' with the Rockettes. The Rockettes are a precision dance company, stationed out of the Radio City Music Hall in Manhattan, New York City.

    • Joey: It's not like we agreed to live together forever. We're not Bert and Ernie. Chandler: I'm aware we're not gay puppets. Bert and Ernie are puppets from the show Sesame Street. Radio spoofs have been done claiming that Bert and Ernie are gay, since they have lived together for over 20 years.
