Probably the main thing that makes "Zoom at the Top" unique is that Wile E. "Overconfidentii Vulgaris" Coyote talks at one: he says "Ouch!". Aside from that, the rest of the cartoon consists of him up to his usual shenanigans to catch Road "Disappearialis Quickius" Runner. Among the traps here are an ice maker and a boomerang.

I also get the feeling that this cartoon was sort of a last gasp of air, as the Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies heyday was winding down, to the point where Warner Bros. closed the animation studio in 1963, and so Friz Freleng re-opened it under a new name.

But anyway, it's a really funny cartoon.
