Not good
4 May 2004 | by (The Hague, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

'Highway Runnery' is a Road Runner cartoon that is not very funny. Directed by Rudy Larriva, who has a taste for bad Road Runner cartoons, this is all a little too simple. The Road Runner rides a car, and not even in the final sequence as we sometimes see.

There is one sequence that makes this cartoon enjoyable enough. The Coyote makes a fake egg with a robot Road Runner in it. Of course the robot is a bomb. The way the Road Runner sits on the egg gave me a good laugh. Another little gag that involves a sail was pretty nice as well.

Other gags are predictable, but not in the good way (as we sometimes see in Road Runner cartoons). The animation is not that good either. Simply said this is not good.
