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 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 »

Pretty funny, 24 April 2004
Author: rbverhoef (rbverhoef@hotmail.com) from The Hague, Netherlands

Another cartoon from the Road Runner vs. Wile E. Coyote series and again a pretty funny one. 'Hook, Line and Stinker' introduces the Road Runner as Burnius Roadibus and the Coyote as Famishius Famishius before Coyote starts failing to catch the Road Runner. This time he uses dynamite (twice), birdseed at a railroad crossing and even a concert piano that must fall on the Road Runner. Of course the Coyote will not succeed.

This cartoon had me smiling a couple of times and although predictable most of the gags worked for me. The fact that you know exactly what will happen and the cartoon will not disappoint you is one of the charms from the series. Here, the gag with the railroad crossing and the birdseed made me laugh quite hard.
