"You should see a psst-psychiatrist."

One of three shorts that were made out of a failed pilot for a Road Runner TV series. The best of these was To Beep or Not to Beep. This one is enjoyable on its own but better as a part of the longer pilot. The biggest problem with this one is the abrupt ending and the fact that it's more talky than a Road Runner & Wile E. Coyote short should be. Yes, Wile E. Coyote talks in this one, speaking to a couple of kids watching him on TV who don't understand why he wants the Road Runner so bad. He explains it's because of the Road Runner's taste, including showing a chart that shows how every different part of the bird has a distinct flavor. Anyway, the two kids are funny and the animation is nice for the time. Seek out the original pilot if you can.
