Who said it: Sheriff Andy or Foghorn Leghorn?

Can you – I say, I say – can you guess who proliferated these particular southern parlances?


Looney Tunes characters are known by their catchphrases as much as their looks. Each voice, more than likely supplied by Mel Blanc, is imitated and quoted by fans young and old alike.

Foghorn Leghorn is more associated with the way he speaks rather than a specific phrase. He never fails to shout out a funny expression in his blustering southern drawl. Sheriff Andy Taylor from The Andy Griffith Show may not have said things at the same volume as Foghorn but he intoned plenty of great phrases and idioms as well.

We’ve collected some of our favorite quotes from both Sheriff Andy and Foghorn Leghorn. Can you tell - I say - can you tell who said what now?
