Trivia

Rather than having incidental music composed and arranged specifically for the cartoon, this is one of six Warner Brothers cartoons featuring a non-thematic stock soundtrack due to a musicians' strike. It was scored by John Seely of Capitol Records using stock music from the Hi-Q sound library. See more »

The chase continues
16 May 2004 | by (The Hague, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This is another fine cartoon in the Road Runner vs. Wile E. Coyote series. This time the Coyote tries to catch the bird with a catapult and dynamite, some more dynamite, some hand grenades, a falling rock, a speed boat and even some high speed tonic. Of course he fails with every new attempt, hurting himself over and over again.

Since this one is directed by Chuck Jones you can be certain that it is entertaining. Cartoons directed by him are always funny and the timing is perfect. Here it is not different. The gag with the speed boat and a waterfall is very good. The high speed tonic joke is quite good as well. First he tests the stuff on a mouse before trying it himself. Especially the running mouse looks very funny. 'Hip Hip-Hurry' is another fine example of the great cartoons from Chuck Jones.
