Among the strategies that fail in Wile E. Coyote's attempts to catch the Roadrunner: glue on the road, a giant rubber band, an outboard motor in a wash tub, and dressing in drag as a female Roadrunner.
After Wile E. Coyote takes his Acme Super Leg Muscle Supplement, he takes off in a blaze of fire. The road runner leaves smoke, the coyote leaves fire. The sounds for this fire effect, done by sound genius Treg Brown, were made using an old flame thrower, a motorcycle clip, and sounds from the airplanes in Dawn Patrol, all sped up a bit. See more »
Chuck Jones as director, and that means it will be at least entertaining. The Coyote, or Eatibus Anythingus, chases a fly because he is very hungry. When he wants to eat an empty can the Road Runner, or Hot-Roddicus Supersonicus, runs by. Of course the Coyote prefers a Road Runner over an empty can, so the chase can start once again. This time he uses a steel wall that has to pop up, a motorcycle, birdseed on a bridge, vitamins for the muscles in the legs and a Burmese tiger trap.
Most of the gags work very good. The one on the bridge with the birdseed is terrific, the timing and use of the pop-up steel wall is perfect and the gag that involves the Burmese tiger trap, and the freeze frame directly after that (you will recognize the moment) are hilarious. A very good cartoon.
