Did You Know?


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 stripes on Wile E. Coyote's boat rapidly alternate colors for a couple seconds when he narrowly avoids driving off the waterfall. See more »

Looks like gin and tonic requires gin!
27 October 2006 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

More of Wile E. Coyote's perpetually unsuccessful, self-harming attempts to trap Road Runner in an unidentified part of the American Southwest. As can be expected, there's no shortage of dynamite here, but there's also boulders, a grenade, and even a form of tonic containing some most unusual vitamins. You gotta wonder why Wile E. doesn't just give up, but of course, then there would be none of these cartoons. "Hip Hip-Hurry!" may not really add anything new, but it's always great to see what happens to these characters. The waterfall gag was great, as was the end. I guess that Wile E. doesn't have to reach for the stars anymore!
