rolling Indestructo Ball on the lost highway
29 June 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

If a cartoon was directed by Chuck Jones, it was almost guaranteed to be great. And so it is with "Wild About Hurry", the 16th pairing of Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner. WEC tries things like a rocket (it crashes into an incline), rubber band (it throws him onto the ground), falling rock (it falls with him on top and he spins it, giving himself the worst case of dizziness imaginable). So surely the Indestructo Ball will work, right? Well, it would have, had Wile E. possessed any directional control! Why does WEC try time and again to catch RR? George Santayana said that fanaticism means redoubling your efforts after you've forgotten your aim. But there's something else. As the cartoons' creators said in interviews, each time, Wile E. comes just close enough to catching RR, so that he's certain that he'll succeed next time. Yeah, you'd think so, but we all know what's going to happen! These cartoons are a pleasure to watch time and again.
