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.

live fast, not die young (in fact, not die at all)
29 June 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Once again, Wile E. "Carnivorous Slobbius" Coyote sets up a series of traps for Road "Velocitus Incalcublii" Runner, and they always backfire. In one instance, RR turns into sort of a jerk (or at least that was how I interpreted it). The overall point is that even though we always know what sorts of things are going to happen, it's a total pleasure to watch them play. Those signs encouraging RR to slow down reminded me of the expression "live fast, die young" (often used to describe Elvis Presley).

But anyway, "Fastest with the Mostest" is just great, even though the end was clearly lifted from the Bugs Bunny vehicle "High-Diving Hare". On that subject, I have studied law some, so I'd better be careful on ledges!
