  • Quotes

    • Foghorn Leghorn: Somedays it don't pay to get out of bed!

    • Foghorn Leghorn: What's goin', ah say, what's goin' on here?! Don't stand there with your beak open! Say somethin'! Explain yourself! Your tongue's flappin', but no noise is comin' out of your big mouth! Now get out and stay out! Scram, that is!

    • Foghorn Leghorn: You gotta keep your eye on the ball. Eye! Ball! Eyeball! I almost had a gag, son. Joke, that is.

    • Foghorn Leghorn: You got a hole in your glove. I keep pitching them, and you keep missing them.

  • Notes

    • The Foghorn Leghorn is on volume one of the Looney Tunes Golden Collection DVD set (disc four), with original title card and credits. With this DVD release, it surpassed Hen House Henery (1949) as the earliest-released Foghorn Leghorn cartoon to survive with its original credits intact, only to be surpassed by Crowing Pains (1947) in 2008.

    • The CBS version of The Foghorn Leghorn leaves in the trunk sequence, but cuts out the climatic scene where Henery throws a stick of lit dynamite into the barnyard dog's house.

    • On ABC, the part from The Foghorn Leghorn where Barnyard Dawg climbs out of the trunk and gets whacked on the head and face as Foghorn is wildly gesticulating while telling Henery Hawk that he got a trunk instead of a chicken was drastically shortened. Also cut short was the part after the doghouse blows up and Barnyard Dawg throws Foghorn to the ground and kicks him, calling him a "good-for-nothing chicken".

    • The Foghorn Leghorn was only one of five post-1948 WB cartoons to get a Blue Ribbon reissue prior to 1956 - with the original credits cut. The others were Daffy Dilly, Kit for Cat, Scaredy Cat, and You Were Never Duckier.

    • The Foghorn Leghorn is 7 minutes long.

    • The Foghorn Leghorn was released on October 9, 1948.

    • Around the 1953-1954 season, Warner Bros. cartoons began using a new set of "bullet" titles, while the ending sequence had the old style titles. The ending sequence would change later on in the year.

    • Captain Hareblower was released in 1954.

    • As of 2007, The Stuper Salesman can be found on the four-disc DVD box set Looney Tunes Golden Collection: Volume 5, as well as the similar, two-disc DVD Looney Tunes Spotlight Collection: Volume 5.

    • When The Stupor Salesman aired on the WB, the part where Daffy turns on the gas stove and tries to flick the lighter on was cut.

    • When The Stupor Salesman aired on FOX's "The Merrie Melodies Show", the part where Slug McSlug points his gun at Daffy's stomach and Daffy uses a polish that makes the gun fall limp was cut.

    • The Stupor Salesman is 7 minutes long.

    • The Stupor Salesman was released on November 20, 1948.
