Here we go again
25 April 2004 | by (The Hague, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

The Road Runner, or Batoutahelius, is chased once again by the Coyote, or Hardheadipus Oedipus, in this cartoon from the Road Runner vs. Wile E. Coyote series. This time the Coyote uses an "Indestructo Steel Ball" after attempts with a rocket failed. The ball, indeed not possible to destruct, ends up falling and bouncing in a loop with the Coyote in it. The Road Runner even comments on the loop, "Here we go again."

This is a nice entry in the series and like every episode it is enjoyable. Although it could have been better I liked the sequence with the steel ball. The ending, some pretty nice animation and music that adds something to the cartoon make this a cartoon worth watching.
