Imaginative attempts to catch the Roadrunner
20 April 2002 | by See all my reviews

These Roadrunner cartoons were my favorites when I was a kid mostly because they were the most absurd and imaginative of all WB cartoon. The basic idea is that Coyote desperately tries to catch the Roadrunner and invents a huge amount of new interesting ways to do it... and even more ways to fail. In this episode Coyote tries to learn of his mistakes and makes a retry. Some of the ideas are quite predictable but some are surprising.

This is one of the few episodes where Coyote actually talks - in most episodes there's no dialog at all or it's written in signs. It's interesting that WB named these cartoons after the Roadrunner even though the Coyote actually has the leading role and the Roadrunner just... well just runs and makes that beeb-beeb thing.
