One of the funniest
16 May 2004 | by (The Hague, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

'Lickety-Splat' is one of the funniest cartoons in the Road Runner vs. Wile E. Coyote series. The Coyote, who introduces himself as Apetitis Giganticus and the Road Runner as Fastius Tasty-us, is trying to catch the bird with a bow, a rifle, a boomerang that guarantees to come back and some exploding darts.

This cartoon is written and directed by Chuck Jones so you know it will be at least entertaining. This one is more than that. Especially the gag with the exploding darts is terrific. The darts appear more often than you would think but they get a laugh every single time. With nice animation and music that suits the cartoon this is one of the better one to find.
