Wile E. Coyote uses, among other things, a dehydrated boulder to try to catch the Road Runner. He applies a drop of water to enlarge it from pebble-size to usual boulder dimensions, but it enlarges as Wile E. is lifting it over his head, coming down on top of him. Written by

Admittedly the story is formulaic, but that can be said for all the Roadrunner/Wile E Coyote cartoons. You could go as far to call the series a "formula" series. Scrambled Aches for me was one of the best of the series as well as one of the funniest. Scrambled Aches is one of the better-looking Roadrunner/Coyote cartoons, the stylised backgrounds do not look cheap at all, the characters look good especially Coyote with his facial expressions and the colours are appealingly warm. The music is energetic and characterful as usual, and the orchestration is clever and beautiful, enhancing the action rather than slowing it down. Scrambled Aches is well-paced and while you do know the outcome of the gags the gags are still really funny, and this is of the non-stop hilarity kind. Especially good were those of dehydrated boulders, steam-roller and the escape hatch. The rocket and rope/dynamite gags are quite familiar but were still funny and not rushed or drawn out. Roadrunner is good, but Coyote has always been the much more compelling character and he doesn't disappoint. Have always loved his sly but frustrated facial expressions and his effortlessly funny and cunning personality, because all the bad stuff happens to him and he is the character that provides the laughs essentially you do feel pangs of sympathy for Coyote as well. In conclusion, those who enjoy the Roadrunner/Coyote cartoons should have no problem having fun with Scrambled Aches. As someone who generally enjoys the series, although there were a few duds in the later years, I do consider Scrambled Aches is a definite standout. 10/10 Bethany Cox
