The Leghorn Blows at Midnight is a 1950 Foghorn Leghorn cartoon made by Warner Bros. and directed by Robert McKimson featuring Henery Hawk and the Barnyard Dawg.


Henery the chicken hawk arrives back on the farm, in the process he disturbs the antics of Foghorn Leghorn. Henery puts a pumpkin in a catapult and Foghorn sees and helps him and he asked for a match and he gives him a match and lits the rope. Foghorn walks away then wonders what is a pumpkin tied to a rope before he could finish the pumpkin went to his head sending rolling into the wall remarking " Ask a silly question! Get a silly answer!". Henery drags him by the toe and Foghorn yells him to let go of my toe and he removes the pumpkin from his head and begs him not take me. Foghorn then fools the chicken hawk into thinking he has painted him invisible and sends the naïve little after "Pheasent Under Glass" which turns out to be the barnyard dog.

On ABC's The Bugs Bunny & Tweety Show, some scenes of Barnyard Dawg getting strangled by his rope as he chases Foghorn Leghorn were deleted. The fight near the end between Foghorn Leghorn and Barnyard Dawg was also cut, replacing some of the violence with reaction shots of Henery Hawk cheering them on.[1]
