Foghorn Leghorn- Brief History Moment

 The character of Foghorn Leghorn was originally inspired by a character in a series of political cartoons created by Robert McKimson (seen here with Mel Blanc). McKimson's character was based around Senator Claghorn, a fictional radio politician who often used a catchphrase that Foghorn Leghorn would later use in the animated cartoons.  Foghorn adopted many of Claghorn's catchphrases, such as "I say." and "That's a joke, son!". Claghorn was the first character to be voiced by Mel Blanc, the voice of Foghorn was also performed by Frank Gorshin, Jeff Bergman, Joe Alaskey, Greg Burson, Bill Farmer, and Eric Bauza.  "Foghorn Leghorn" was first introduced in 1946 cartoon. "Foghorn Leghorn" is a mature rooster 

and quiet a character known for his quick wittiness and noble advice. In his cartoons, he is usually on a quest to bother "Barnyard Dawg". 
 He is also giving his advice to "Henery Hawk" who thinks he has a rivalry with "Barnyard Dawg". The cartoon series lasted until 1964.  S0...without further a do, here is a classic Foghorn Leghorn cartoon.
