Foghorn Leghorn is the name of a character appearing in numerous Warner Brothers animated cartoon, especially Looney Tunes. He is a large, anthropomorphic adult rooster with a strong Southern accent and a penchant for mischief. He first appeared in 1946 in a Henery Hawk film entitled Walky Talky Hawky. All of the motion picture Foghorn Leghorn cartoons were directed by Robert McKimson, and the rooster vies with the Tasmanian Devil as the most popular character associated with the director. Many of the gags involved Foghorn and a canine nemesis (informally known as the The Barnyard Dawg, though on early model sheet his name is given as George P. Dog) engaging in one-upmanship through a series of pranks.
