Storyline

Ever wonder who was the fastest Road Runner or Speedy Gonzales? This cartoon aimed to answer that all-important question between two of Warner Brothers' speediest characters. Of course, the race (set in an American desert) wouldn't be interesting without Wile E. Coyote or Sylvester trying to nab the bird and mouse. Both the hard-luck coyote and the puddy tat use a variety of tactics to grap their respective dinners, all which (of course) fail. In the end, Wile E. and Sylvester use a supersonic jet to pass their prey at the finish line (and "win" the race), but their vehicle quickly careens over the cliff. The poor puddy tat fall down over the cliff, just like Wile E. has so many times. Written by Brian Rathjen <briguy_52732@yahoo.com>

For years, Wile E. Coyote had unsuccessfully chased Road Runner, and Sylvester had unsuccessfully pursued Speedy Gonzales. With RR racing against the Fastest Mouse in Mexico, it's no surprise that WEC and Sylvester try to catch them...whether they cooperate or get on each other's nerves.

I should identify that despite the overall plot, "The Wild Chase" is not a particularly original cartoon. Many of the traps were lifted out of previous cartoons. I also felt that the cartoon ended sort of abruptly. But in the grand scheme of things, I liked the idea of what would happen if these two most accelerated Looney Tunes had to race against each other. If it brings up the continuing immigration debate in our country (a Mexican and an American as opponents), then so be it. This is still a pretty interesting cartoon.
