An oddly-edited "Adventures of the Road-Runner" cut-down
19 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Now of course, I give the original 1962 "Adventures of the Road-Runner" segment a 10 out of 10. But this only deserves a 9.

Now, all of this is basically recycled animation from the above-mentioned cartoon. It stars the Road-Runner and Wile E. Coyote (my favorite Looney Tunes character), of course, but it also has Ralph Phillips and his friend/brother/cousin/whatever. Ralph Phillips is the little boy from two of Chuck Jones's cartoons; "From A to Zzzzz..." (1954, Ralph daydreams while in class) and "Boyhood Daze" (1957, Ralph daydreams while he is grounded).

It features the scene with the road-sign shaped like the WB shield, the beginning of Ralph and the other boy's conversation, the commercial for Acme Bat-Man suit (old animation recycled from "Gee Whiz-z-z-z" (1956), the boys talking about how bad daydreaming could be, and to top it all off, the Coyote explaining (in his fine, British voice; the same one heard from the Bugs Bunny/Wile E. Coyote cartoons) about the delicious flavors inside the Road-Runner and the cooking opportunities.

The only thing new is the sub-main titles, which do not credit Chuck Jones for some strange reason. It has music from the intro for the "Adventures of the Road-Runner" cartoon.

But the strangest thing of all in this cartoon is the opening and closing sequences. Instead of using the traditional rings-and-WB-shield logo, since this was "made" in 1965, it features the bizarre "Abstract WB" opening and closing titles, with the weird, "modern" version of the Looney Tunes theme. It uses the Merrie Melodies version of the opening (though recent TV airings edit the logo a bit so it says "Looney Tunes"). However, Chuck Jones introduced this logo on his abstract, "artistic" 1962 Looney Tune "Now Hear This." Overall, if you have never seen "Adventures of the Road-Runner," an interesting toon and you should check it out!
