Very funny, 16 July 2010
Author: TheLittleSongbird from United Kingdom

While I agree there are a few predictable gags, there are also some very well-executed ones that are ambitious and are a good length. The animation is very good, making it I feel one of the better-looking Roadrunner vs. Coyote cartoons, and the music is not repetitive or annoying thank goodness. The Roadrunner is likable enough, but I have often preferred Coyote, because he is craftier and we actually sympathise with him to some extent. Beep, Beep also goes along at a fast pace, and doesn't feel laborious or rushed in any way. In fact, apart from a few predictabilities, it is near-perfect, and I liked the underground scene as well. 9/10 Bethany Cox
