Quite painful to watch
29 February 2004 | by (Rijswijk, ZH, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

It is really sad to see how the Road runner series had deteriorated by the mid sixties. The animation is poor, the gags seem to be recycled from earlier efforts and it all looks terrible. The same shots (and punchlines) are used over and over again and go on for far to long. What is the point in setting up the gag with the old car when it only leads to the old Road Runner behind the wheel cliché? Personally I never enjoyed seeing double R. driving any vehicle. It makes no sense and being the 'good guy' he really should not be driving over anybody at all.

There are so few jokes that they have to milk each drawing and stretch out each scene for as long as they possibly could to fill a mere six and a half minutes. The animation is about par with a Hanna/Barbera TV show. They made an attempt to compensate this with more elaborate sound effects than usual, which only helps to emphasize the flatness of the animation. The only vaguely original thing is a walking bomb that looks like a baby road runner and even this bit doesn't amount to anything.
