My Favorite Bugs vs Wile E. Coyote cartoon
10 November 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I like the Bugs vs Wile E. Coyote cartoons, better than just the Coyote/Roadrunner cartoons; I also love the Chuck Jones/Phil Monroe collab that was in this cartoon too. I love the "OH NO!" take Bugs does, after Wile tells him "I am going to eat you." And I love the ending,when Bugs gives the moral of the story : "M.U.D. spell backwards is D.U.M."

Being an interest in Folklore, and hearing on the commentary for this cartoon, there are some parallels of South-Western Indian folktales of Coyote, the trickster, and a very proud and smug character; and the African-American folktales of Br'er Rabbit & Br'er Fox (post-modern take);only instead of snare traps, and tar dummies, The Coyote uses high explosives.
