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.

Sometimes It's Better To Draw The Gags Out A Little More
18 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A comedy bit early on in this cartoon gives a perfect example of how much funner some of these stunts can be if they drew out more than the usual 10-15 seconds. Wile E. Coyote gets stuck in glue with a stick of dynamite he can't get off his hands and the various ways he tries to get out of that situation makes it a very funny "skit."

Don't get wrong; I laugh at most of the poor coyote's failed attempts at the Road Runner. I think they would be better with five or six drawn-out gags than the usual 10-15 you see in most of the seven-minute cartoons.

Wile's contraption of a little wagon filled with water and an outboard motor and roller skates strapped to himself was another inventive move by our never-say-die coyote. Where he gets the money to buy all these Acme Company supplies every cartoon is a mystery.

The ending to this is a shock.....and very funny!
