'Zoom at the Top' is a nice Road Runner v.s Wile E. Coyote cartoon, but not much more than that. Here the Coyote, introduced as Overconfidentii Vulgaris, tries to catch the Road Runner, introduced as Disapperialis Quickius, with a giant bear trap, a rocket, an ice making machine from Acme and finally a boomerang.

The gags are pretty predictable but some of them work pretty good. The moments with the bear trap are very funny and the Coyote says one little word that gave me a big laugh. The final moments with the boomerang are a little too long although the last image makes it nice again. Definitely not the best from the series but a nice entry anyway.
