Nice entry in the canon, but hardly exceptional
17 June 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Now I enjoy the Roadrunner and Coyote cartoons, though I prefer the ones with Bugs and Daffy. Zoom at the Top is worth watching, if unexceptional. The storyline is disappointingly predictable and the final gag is rather drawn out, and the pacing is uneven. Still the animation and music are great, Coyote is very cunning as usual and the gags on the whole are very amusing and well timed.

Overall, I did enjoy Zoom at the Top very much, but I prefer other entries in the series and this one did have problems. Visually and technically I cannot fault it though, and it was amusing. 7/10 I think will be sufficient. Bethany Cox
