Trivia

This is one of six WB cartoons using stock music instead of an original score because of a musicians' strike in 1958. The others are Pre-Hysterical Hare, Weasel While You Work, Hip Hip-Hurry! (another Coyote/Road Runner cartoon), Gopher Broke, and A Bird in a Bonnet. See more »

Lesser Chuck Jones Road Runner & Coyote short that's still better than all of the stuff that came after Jones left the series. The animation is solid, if not particularly exceptional. The colors are kind of dull, which is odd for the time. I thought maybe it was just the print I saw off TV but I checked out the DVD version and it appears to be the same there. As other reviewers have mentioned, the one notable gag involves a piano. The rest are pretty forgettable gags involving hammers, dynamite, and bird seed. What hurts the cartoon most of all is the canned music score, which is annoying and below the superior quality of the usual composers who worked in WB animation.
