While cooking a tin can, the Coyote spots a better meal rushing by- the Road Runner. But making himself into a giant arrow doesn't catch the bird, and the book, "How to Tar and Feather a Road Runner", isn't much help either.

Storyline

Wile E. Coyote tries to drop a rocket bomb on the Road Runner from a balloon but inflates himself instead, ascends skyward, then falls along with the bomb. He tries painstakingly to deactivate the bomb before it explodes - and fails. His attempt to trap the Road Runner on the edge of a cliff results in the cliff collapsing under his feet, sending him to the ground to be hit by his own knife and fork and then fall into a waterfall leading to a maze of pipes.

Very good!
4 January 2010 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

I have watched a few Wile Coyote v Roadrunner cartoons, but so far this is definitely my favourite! By no means is it my new favourite Looney Tunes cartoons, but I certainly enjoyed watching it. The plot-line is the same basic plot line of all the Wile Coyote v Roadrunner cartoons: WC trying to catch R and eat him. In each episode, Wile Coyote tries and fails and even though he should not eat Roadrunner (because he is so cute) you do feel sorry for Wile Coyote.

The reason this is my favourite so far is because some of the slapstick was more unexpected than it usually is in these cartoons and there was a funny ending with words in the form of boards. When I watch Looney Tunes, I generally prefer the ones with Daffy Duck or Bugs Bunny, where there is much witty dialogue involved, but I enjoyed this just as much as many of those sort of episodes. :-) This episode is highly recommended to people who already like Wile Coyote and Roadrunner and to people who like "witty" slapstick, as there was here. Enjoy "Fastest with the Mostest"! :-) 8 and a half out of ten.
