"A little judicious carpentry rectifies that."
1 September 2016 | by See all my reviews

One of three shorts that were made out of a 1962 failed pilot for a Road Runner TV series. The best of these was To Beep or Not to Beep. This one's enjoyable, too, although it seems like a 'clip show' when viewed separate from the rest of the pilot. In this one Wile E. Coyote reviews past efforts to catch the Road Runner (via stock footage from older shorts). This is probably the only Road Runner short to feature a song ("Out in the Desert") and I gotta say I like it. The only problem I have with this cartoon, aside from it using old footage, is that the colors seem washed out in spots. But that could be the quality of the print I saw. Seek out the original pilot if you can. Independently the three shorts made from it are good but combined they're terrific.
