50 Foghorn Leghorn Quotes and Sayings from Looney Tunes

Foghorn Leghorn is a cartoon rooster from Warner Bros.’ Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies series, created by Robert McKimson.

Making his debut in 1946, Foghorn starred in 29 cartoons during the golden age of animation, all directed by McKimson.

His voice, first brought to life by Mel Blanc, was inspired by Senator Claghorn from a 1940s radio show and a 1930s radio character named The Sheriff.

Foghorn’s character is large and loudmouthed, echoing his name which relates to a breed of chicken and a foghorn’s sound.


Living in “Cocamunga” California, Foghorn attended “Chicken Tech” University. He frequently offers unsolicited advice to younger characters, which often irritates them.

One of Foghorn’s quirks is singing the “Camptown Races” song. A notable storyline features his ongoing rivalry with Barnyard Dawg, filled with pranks.

Additionally, several episodes depict him trying to woo Miss Prissy or deal with Henery Hawk’s attempts to eat him.
