"I oughta moidalize the big overstuffed feather duster!"
2 April 2013 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

Plop Goes the Weasel is classic Foghorn Leghorn and to me one of his best. The story is rather routine in the middle, which is quite common with the Foghorn cartoons, but the sense of fun and crisp, breakneck(without feeling rushed) pacing help to maintain interest. The animation is fluid and colourful, no blocky backgrounds, character animation or dull colouring to be seen. The music always helps bring energy to Looney Tunes, and the jaunty orchestration and catchy tunes brings so much energy to the story and the humour. The arrangement of Pop Goes the Weasel in the opening credits couldn't have been more perfect. The writing is full of the sharp wit, endearing repetitive phrases for Foghorn and inspired puns that you associate Foghorn and Looney Tunes with. The interplay between Foghorn and Barnyard Dog is constantly hilarious, though Plop Goes the Weasel is one of those cases where Barnyard has the best line. The gags are well-timed and clever, they are just the sort that you'll find with Foghorn but none of them fall into the trap of being predictable. Foghorn as ever steals the show, though the Weasel is priceless, Barnyard is deliciously cunning and the chicks are adorable. Mel Blanc's vocal characterisations are stellar. All in all, a great classic cartoon. 9/10 Bethany Cox
