Storyline

Wile E. Coyote tries to catch the Road Runner using a sling shot, a grenade in a toy airplane whose propeller detaches and leaves the plane behind, a cannon on a cliff ledge that gives way, and axle grease on his feet that sends him into the path of a train driven by the Road Runner.

more chases, more hilarity
1 June 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Once again, Wile E. Coyote (insert scientific name implying eating) sets a litany of traps to catch Road Runner (insert scientific name implying speed), but always fails. As is protocol, the audience's sympathy is always with Wile E. - though we still laugh at his misfortune - while Road Runner apparently never notices anything. As the series's creators note, the reason that Wile E. keeps going is that he comes just close enough to catching Road Runner that he figures that he can succeed the next time around. After all, as George Santayana noted: fanaticism means redoubling your effort after you've forgotten your aim.

But anyway, "Zip 'N Snort" is a real classic. Available on the Warner Bros. 24 Karat Golden Jubilee video "Road Runner vs. Wile E. Coyote: The Classic Chase".
