Trivia

Rather than having incidental music composed and arranged specifically for the cartoon, this is one of six Warner Brothers cartoons featuring a non-thematic soundtrack due to a musicians' strike. It was scored by John Seely of Capitol Records using stock music from the Hi-Q sound library. See more »

"That dog's like taxes -- he just don't know when to stop."
10 September 2015 | by utgard14See all my reviews

It's wintertime on the farm where Foghorn Leghorn lives. When a hungry weasel shows up and tries to eat Foghorn's leg, the rooster points him in the direction of Barnyard Dog, telling him the dog is venison. Barnyard Dog returns the favor by sending the weasel back to Foghorn. They go back and forth like this with amusing results. The animation is beautiful with rich colors and well-drawn characters. There's something about snowy backgrounds that allows everything else to stand out more than normal. The music is playful and fun. The incomparable Mel Blanc does flawless voice work as usual. The gags mostly work and Foghorn has many funny lines. It's a good Foghorn short.
