Senator Fogbound of "Lil' Abner" fame, was also loosely based on Senator
Claghorn.

CRAP !!
Well first of all, there has never been a Senator Claghorn...
Foghorn Leghorn is a cartoon character who was based on Senator Claghorn, a
verbose character on the Fred Allen radio show of the 1940's. Many of
Foghorn's statements came from this comedic performance by Kenny Delmar.
Henery Hawk is the true spelling of Foghorn's little farmyard chicken hawk
friend. He was voiced from 1946-1966 by the famous Mel Blanc. George P. Dog
is also known as Barnyard Dawg - he was a basset hound that Forghorn loved
to torment. Miss Prissy is a spinster chicken who lives in Foghorn's
barnyard and has "set her cap" at him. She was also voiced by Mel Blanc.
As for Senator Fogbound, I can find no record of the character being based
on anyone, although Al Capp did say that many of the strip's characters were
based on family members, most notably Mammy and Pappy Yoakam, modeled after
his own parents.
