While cooking a tin can, the Coyote spots a better meal rushing by- the Road Runner. But making himself into a giant arrow doesn't catch the bird, and the book, "How to Tar and Feather a Road Runner", isn't much help either.

Some repeated gags, some new ones, still VERY watchable
30 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Starting off with the Road Runner interrupting the crafty coyote's meal, the seventh pairing of Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner has a few gags repeated from the earlier shorts which while old still made me chuckle, but it has a few new ones as well that made me laugh. And as always ANY short with Wile E. in it is so VERY much worth watching, as he's one of my absolute favorite cartoon personalities of all time. This animated short can be seen on Disc 2 of the Looney Tunes Golden Collection Volume 2. This cartoon also has an optional music only track.

My Grade: B
