“Parks and Recreation” is one of the best sitcoms ever. I was mammothly disappointed when NBC yanked it out of the Thursday schedule, then elated when the network finally scheduled it after “The Office” starting in January. (This all but ensures it will be NBC’s second-highest-rated series.) Though he’s inexplicably not on the box, Paul Schneider (“Lars and the Real Girl”) did play Mark Brendanawicz in every second-season episode.

For $14.99, Foghorn Leghorn: Barnyard Bigmouth comes with nine Foghorn shorts and six non-Foghorn ones, as summarized by Paul J. Mular on Amazon:
The Foghorn Leghorn Cartoons: ALL FOWLED UP (1955) Foghorn fools the dog into thinking Henry Hawk is a man from mars, complete with flying saucer. FOX TERROR (1957) A wiley fox uses Foghorn's battle with the dog to as a distraction to steal chickens. A BROKEN LEGHORN (1959) Foghorn slips an egg into Miss Prissy's nest. When it hatches, Foggy must instruct "Junior" in the ancient art of roostering.**GOLDEN COLLECTION 1 RE-ISSUE** CROCKETT DOODLE DOO (1960) Foghorn teaches Miss Prissy's Egghead Jr. all about the great outdoors. WEASEL WHILE YOU WORK (1958) A winter wonderland is the setting for the 3-way battle between Foghorn, the Dog & the Weasel. WEASEL STOP (1956) On a quiet summer day, Foghorn fools the guard dog by running around calling out "Weasel". When the real weasel arrives, nobody believes Foghorn. LITTLE BOY BOO (1954) Foghorn decides he has been a bachelor too long & decides to "woo" Miss Prissy. But he must prove that he would make a good father to her son Junior. STRANGLED EGGS (1961) Foghorn's cupboard is "as bare as a cooch dancer's midriff" so he decides to court Miss Prissy. Henry Hawk impersonates an abandoned baby. BANTY RAIDS (1963) In the last original Foghorn Leghorn Cartoon, "Daddy-O" Foggy encounters a hip beatnik rooster who is looking for some "chicks". This one is a favorite of mine, it is not great but it did stand out for me. The "Friends" cartoons: GOHER BROKE w/ The Goofy Gophers (1958) The gopher's vegetables are harvested by a farmer & stored in a barn guarded by the dog from the Foghorn cartoons. MUTT IN A RUTT w/ Elmer Fudd (1959) A TV show denounces the evils of mean masters, so Rover thinks Elmer is out to do away with him. (WEAK post Arthur Q. Bryant cartoon.) MOUSEPLACED KITTEN w/ Matilda & Clyde (1959) A Kindly mouse couple adopts an abandoned kitten. CHEEZE IT, THE CAT w/ The Honeymousers (1957) On of several spoofs of TV's Honeymooners program. Ralph & Ned try to get a cake out of a refrigerator guarded by a cat. TWO CROWS FROM TACOS w/ Jose & Manuel (1956) Two lethargic Mexicali crows go after a grasshopper. CROWS FEAT w/ Elmer Fudd, Jose & Manuel (1962) The two crows invade Elmers corn field.
I believe only “A Broken Leghorn” has been released on the Golden Collection sets, so this is a decent way to keep collecting.
