Wile E. falls down and goes boom MULTIPLE times
30 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We come to the twelfth pairing of Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner (and the last on the Golden Collect Volume 2 sadly). And the overt familiarity doesn't detract at all with the humor. It's like watching the Stooges you KNOW all three will have some sort of hideous pain inflicted upon them. as always I found it highly enjoyable, but perhaps I'm a bit biased as Wile E. Coyote is one of my absolute favorite cartoon personalities of all time. This animated short can be seen on Disc 2 of the Looney Tunes Golden Collection Volume 2. This cartoon also has an optional music only track.

My Grade: A
