Wile E. Coyote Keeps On Rolling With The Indestructo Ball
28 January 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Among the best of the always-engaging Road Runner series, Wild About Hurry opens with a superior title sequence, Chuck Jones' director credit on a rocket that helps Wile E. pursue the lightning-fast Road Runner (of course identified with a bogus Latin name) before the hapless wolf brethren slams into a cliff overhang.

A slingshot proves ineffective, and a drill-shaped rock leaves the coyote with a fit of the spins, before the most implausible gag - and thus among Jones' funniest - appears in the rocket train that plunges through the cliff-mounted track spur into the ground.

But then comes the short's coup de grace - the Acme Indestructo Steel Ball. Wile E. rides inside to catch Road Runner, but misses and winds up on a spectacular journey through a desert river aided by a recently-erected dam and waterfall. That, though, is just the start, as a speeding train and a abandoned minefield prove the real blast of the short, leaving the Road Runner showing the sympathy for the coyote that is the hallmark of the entire series before speeding off into the iris-out.
