The very first
21 April 2004 | by (The Hague, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

'Fast and Furry-ous' is the cartoon that started the chases between Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote. The cartoons with those two characters belong to my favorites. From the opening where Road Runner is introduced with his kind of Latin name Accelerati Incredibulis and Coyote with his kind of Latin name Carnivarious Vulgaris the shorts are always funny.

Funny I say, but also very predictable. With this first cartoon that is a fact as well. May it is the charm of a cartoon like this. You expect something, exactly that will happen, and still it is funny. There is one surprise in this one and that is the ending. I laughed numerous times. If it was really the first one I saw I would have laughed even more. This is a great cartoon.
