Trivia

Exploding musical instrument scheme is in three Warner Brothers cartoons. The musical score is "Those Endearing Young Charms". In order, they are, first is 1951's Ballot Box Bunny (1951), as Yosemite Sam tried to get rid of Bugs Bunny, with an explosive piano. Second is 1957's Show Biz Bugs (1957), as Daffy Duck tried to get rid of Bugs Bunny, with an exploding xylophone. Then, in 1965, the rivals are Wile E. Coyote and "Anonymous" Roadrunner, (not named), in Rushing Roulette (1965). Wile E. Coyote set up an exploding piano, and the roadrunner played one 'sour note'. Additional fact: The very same musical note, approximately the seventh note to the tenth note, is the note, that is not played correctly, every time and when correctly played, by the schemer, gets the explosion happening to it.

Good enough
1 May 2004 | by (The Hague, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

'Rushing Roulette' is a cartoon from the Road Runner vs. Wile E. Coyote series, directed by Robert McKimson. In this cartoon the Coyote tries to catch the Road Runner with free piano lessons, free snap shots, a helicopter and an anvil, some glue on the road and he uses a mirror and sunlight to burn things, including the Road Runner. Of course things do not work as planned.

Although the cartoons in which the Road Runner actually does things to the Coyote are not my favorites (in the early cartoons the Road Runner was just running and the Coyote's tricks simply all backfired on him) this is a nice one and good enough for the series. I had my laughs. And although I don't like the endings where the Road Runner is driving a vehicle, the other gags involving vehicles are pretty good here.
