There's nothing worse to a fan of the Road Runner & Coyote shorts than hearing that dreadful opening carnival music. Because then you know that you're in for a Rudy Larriva stinkfest. As with the other Larriva Road Runner cartoons, this one is just awful. The animation is cheap-looking with dull colors and flat lifeless drawings. I especially hate how proportions and size do not matter in this thing. Just look at the size of Wile E. Coyote in relation to the Road Runner and the different objects he hides behind (there are sadly several). It's not remotely consistent. The stock music and loud sound effects will have you clawing at your ears until they are bloody stumps. The gags are unimaginative and not even slightly funny. Larriva seemed to like crafting overcomplicated gags that, on paper, sound weird enough to be interesting but the finished result is just tedious. Also he relies on utility poles in the middle of the desert way too much. In short, this cartoon sucks. Don't watch it.
