Goofs

In the Coyote's first attempt to catch the Road-Runner, he is shown standing on a bare patch of pavement surrounded by the puddle of glue he is spreading. When the scene cuts to a long shot for the "beep-beep" sound, it returns to a close-up of the Coyote standing on glue with no bare patch. There is another cut to show that the approaching object is a truck and not the Road Runner, and when we next see the Coyote, he is standing on bare pavement in the middle of the glue puddle once again.

Wile E. is Back
2 May 2009 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

Ready.. Set.. Zoom! (1955)

*** (out of 4)

A motored bathtub, glue on the road, a large rubber band and cross dressing are just a few of the ways that Wile E. Coyote tries to catch the Road Runner but I'm sure you know how everything is going to end. The sixth film in the series is perhaps the weakest so far but it still manages tog et a few laughs as that poor Wile just keeps trying no matter how badly it hurts him. There are some nice gags this time including the glue on the road, which does harm to the coyote in a few ways. The gag with the female road runner is without a doubt very neat but I won't spoil it for you.
