Storyline

In his attempt to catch the Road Runner, Wile E. Coyote tries the old cartoon trick of putting up a painting of a continuing road where a bridge has in fact gone out. It doesn't work, nor does dressing in drag or dropping an anvil from a balloon. Written by Paul Penna <tterrace@wco.com>

Again, entertaining enough
26 April 2004 | by (The Hague, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This Road Runner vs. Wile E. Coyote cartoon is another decent entry in the series. The Coyote, or the Carnivorous Vulgaris, chases the Road Runner, introduced as Accelarti Incredibius, again. This time he paints a road where the real road is ending. Of course the Road Runner is able to walk that fake road and after him a truck as well. Coyote also dresses up as a woman and tries to drop an anvil on the Road Runner, of course every attempt without any success.

Another nice cartoon this is, although a Road Runner cartoon can never disappoint me. This is not the best from the series, especially the animation is not that great, but I had my smiles and some laughs.
