The greatest cartoon character of all time, I say, the greatest. Foghorn Leghorn was voiced by the legendary Mel Blanc. Created by Robert McKimson the mighty rooster first appeared in 1946. It was originally a spoof of "Senator Beauregard Claghorn" a character on the Fred Allen radio show Allen's Alley by Kenny Delmar. Delmar later had to ask permission of Warner Brothers to play the character he created after they had copyrighted Foghorn Leghorn!
Stay cheerful son, I say stay cheerful.
