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 »

The road-runner writes in smoke the phrase "That's all, folks!" See more »

Stop in the name of humanity!
6 February 2004 | by (Rijswijk, ZH, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Some Road Runner cartoons don't start with the chase already in progress. In these cases: A) we get to see that cooky Coyote try out some hot cuisine (flies, tin cans, he'll try anything once) and B) when that tasty bird runs by, While E. acts as if he sees it for the very first time (starvation has been known to induce short term memory loss).

The gags in `Stop! Look! And Hasten!' may not be as elaborate as in later R.R. shorts, but the character animation is incredibly rich. Wile E. shows more emotion here than in all of his Sixties' outings combined. Other examples are the realistic body movement of a surprise guest animal and the effects ‘Acme Triple-Strength Fortified Leg Muscle Vitamins' (family size) have on the Coyote (kids, don't do drugs).

The backgrounds and settings are above average too, especially the chase through some Esher inspired train tunnels. We also learn that venturing into human invested parts of the desert can prove quite hazardous when you only communicate by holding up signs (Road Runners avoid problems like this by forming letters in the dust they leave behind).
