Leghorn Swoggled is a 1951 Merrie Melodies short directed by Robert McKimson.


The name is a play on "leghorn" and "hornswoggled".


Little Henery the Chicken Hawk wants to trap Foghorn Leghorn for his dinner, and Barnyard Dawg then says he will help Henery to catch Foghorn on one condition - that Henery find him a bone. Henery's efforts to find the dog a bone involve obtaining cheese for a mouse and a fish for a cat, with Foghorn's help! Once the dog is given his bone, he uses it to knock Foghorn out, so that Foghorn can be carried away by Henery on a toy train.




Two gags centered on choking were cut when this cartoon aired on ABC's The Bugs Bunny & Tweety Show:[2]

  • When Henery Hawk catches Foghorn by the neck with his lasso, Foghorn's line, "I've lost my voice. I can't sing. It's like being choked on a rope" was cut down on "I've lost my voice".
  • The scene of Foghorn Leghorn spanking Barnyard Dawg and making him chase him up a ladder and onto a pull-up bar, where Barnyard Dawg swings from his rope and gets his underside repeatedly painted was cut off after Foghorn Leghorn spanks him and runs.


  • After Barnyard Dawg is punched in the face with a boxing glove camera, the screen briefly freeze-frames for one second before it resumes playing as normal.
