Trivia

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 »

A Couple Of Original Ideas Make This Fun
17 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Wile E. Coyote (Eatibus Anythingus) has a bad reaction after eating some flying insect but he's so hungry he'll eat anything, even an empty tin can on the road. The road runner (Hot- roddicus Supersonicus) races by and runs over the poor, starving coyote. Wile gives chase, showing amazing speed, but who can catch the ultra-fast road runner? So, it's back to Wile to try to use his brains, once again, and figure a way to get this delicious-looking bird-meal.

Outside of some of the normal unsuccessful ploys such as falling boulders and TNT, there are several funny original thoughts, such as "The Burmese Tiger Trap," the automated steel- plated shield and the leg-muscles vitamins!

This was fun, and part of the Looney Tunes Golden Collection Volume Two DVD.
