* BorrowedCatchphrase: Henery Hawk would occasionally adopt Foghorn's [[VerbalTic "I say"]]. Notably at the end of "Walky Talky Hawky", which ends with him [[PintSizedPowerhouse dragging Foggy, Barnyard Dawg and a horse behind him]]:

* BreakoutCharacter: "Walky Talky Hawky" was created as a second starring turn for Henery Hawk, but the loud mouthed shnook stole the show, getting him his own series, and reducing Henery to his adversary.



* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness and OffModel: In the first Foghorn Leghorn cartoon (which actually focused on Henery Hawk), Foghorn was a tad plumper, had three toes instead of two and four tail feathers. By the second cartoon, Foghorn had two toes, and three tail feathers (though some cartoons depict him with four).



* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: To an extent, Foghorn is an obnoxious loudmouth and a [[ScrewySquirrel prankster]], but does have occasional moments of good intentions, and is rarely, if ever, portrayed as a villian outside the original cartoons, unlike characters such as Daffy.

** In ''Walky Talky Hawky'', Henery drags off in a line Foghorn, Barnyard Dog and ''a horse''.

* SophisticatedAsHell: ''Weasel While You Work'' opens with Foghorn rolling Dawg up into a snowman, after which Dawg pops his head out of the snowman head and says...
-->"There is but one course for me to follow - [[SuddenlyShouting I'LL MOIDER DA BUM!!]]"



** Foghorn's voice was more nasally and less baritone in the first couple of cartoons. According to Mckimson, Blanc did not voice Foghorn in the first short, though shortly took over and mastered the interpretation the director desired.

** "Aaah, shaddap !"

to:

** "Pay attention when I'm talkin' to ya, boy!"
** [[BigShutUp
"Aaah, shaddap !"shaddap!"]]



* HonestJohnsDealership: In ''The High and the Flighty'', WesternAnimation/DaffyDuck appears on the scene as a salesman representing the Ace Novelty Company of Walla Walla, Washington. He has arrived to profit from Foghorn's rivalry with the Dawg by independently selling them both elaborate practical jokes to each play on the other. Unfortunately, Daffy pushes his luck too far when he sells them both the same thing, the Pipe Full of Fun Kit #7. Foggy and the Dawg realize they've been had, and [[EnemyMine they put their rivalry aside to get even with Daffy]], by [[HoistByHisOwnPetard using his own novelty device against him]].



* ShuttingUpNow: At the end of ''A Fractured Leghorn'', as Foghorn lectures the cat about dividing a worm in half for them to share, the cat, who has said a word at all the whole cartoon, finally gets fed up and yells at him to [[BigShutUp "SHUT UP!"]], clobbering him in the process, after which Foghorn continues in the manner of this trope:
-->"Okay, I'll shut up. I'm not one that has to keep talkin'. Some fellas just have to keep their mouths flappin', but not me! I was brought up right, my pa used to tell me "shut up" and I'd shut up! I wouldn't say nothin'! One time, darn-near starved to death!" ''(at this point, the iris-out starts to end the cartoon, but Foghorn stalls it briefly)'' "Wouldn't tell him I was hungry!" ''(cartoon ends)''



* YouTalkTooMuch: One of Foggy's personality flaws and it's played UpToEleven sometimes to increase the comedy is his talkativeness and overblown rambling on. The Barnyard Dawg is often annoyed by this and it frequently irritates Henery Hawk, but (in "A Fractured Leghorn") when a black and white cat takes the brunt of Foggy's motormouth and can't get a word in edgewise, he finally loses his cool. He grabs a nearby trash can, bashes it over the rooster's head and tells him to "SHADDUP!!!!!" But even a beating over the head (or a large headache) isn't enough to shut up Foggy only the iris-out a few seconds later which he tries unsuccessfully to hold open, finally closes his mouth.

** Foggy himself was a caricature of Senator Claghorn, a popular radio comedian at the time of TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation, although that's pretty much been forgotten to modern viewers.

* ThinkerPose: This happens to him at the end of one cartoon, after his big prank on the dog using quick drying cement backfires on him. ("Don't bother me, dog!" he manages to mutter. "[[SarcasmMode Can't ya see I'm thinkin'?]]")



* ThinkerPose / WetCementGag: This happens to him at the end of one cartoon, after his big prank on the dog using quick drying cement backfires on him. ("Don't bother me, dog!" he manages to mutter. "[[SarcasmMode Can't ya see I'm thinkin'?]]")



* VitriolicBestBuds: With his old college roommate, Rhode Island Red; in the one episode where he shows up, Foggy does ''everything'' he can to get the guy to leave, except just ''telling'' him to, suggesting the trope applies to them. (Indeed, Red is pretty annoying.)

** He and Barnyard Dawg sometimes shade into this as well.



* WetCementGag: Foghorn tries to pour quick-drying cement on Dawg, but the retractable spout on the mixer pours the cement on him instead.
