The Poor Coyote Can't Make It Past The Opening Credits!
22 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The writer in this one wasted no time depicting Wile E. Coyote (Eatius Birdius) taking physical abuse, being run over by a truck and having a crate fall on his head in the opening credits!

The Road Runner (Delicius Delicius), meanwhile, is in top form, making rectangular smoke with his quick turns and then making the pavement wobble like an earthquake hit it after he roars down the road. Even the coyote is impressed as he pulls out a sign to show us, saying "Egad!!!"

He then starts thinking, which means here we go again: more inventive ways to catch the elusive bird. The ones that stood out, at least to me, were: the "confused" bullet, the green "Batman" outfit and flying sequence, Wile's great painting and perhaps best of all: the coyote's final request to the cartoon writer!

Overall, an excellent Road Runner effort.
