The Roadrunner: Variations on a Theme (Urban)
26 October 2002 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

There are people who consider the Wile E. Coyote/roadrunner shorts that Chuck Jones did for Warner Brothers to be his best series. Certainly, as a demonstration that silent cartoons still had some appeal, they do work.... but their inherent limitation as a variation on a simple theme bores me after a while.

In the middle 1960s, Chuck Jones did several Tom-and-Jerry cartoons and in this one, they play Wile E. Coyote (Tom) and the roadrunner (Jerry). The distinction here is that the setting is urban, rather than the southwestern desert that the roadrunner lives in -- a Krazy Kat sort of environment.

Most of this takes place in a department store, where the usual Acme products are available. The net result is mediocre.
