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>

It's just a cartoon
3 June 2009 | by (South Lanarkshire, Scotland) – See all my reviews

This is particularly for those who would criticize this cartoon because it doesn't quite meet your expectations.

Get over it. It is, after all, a cartoon.

If you want an Academy Award winning performance, by all means, watch an Academy Award winning film. This is a cartoon. I mention that again just in case it has escaped your observation up until now.

And this cartoon combines the two best elements from cartoons gone by - specifically the Road Runner and Speedy chases. Not only does it combine the two best pairs of good guy vs. bad guy, but also some of the best gags from past shows.

If you still don't think it's up to par, go back and watch an hour of the shows from the early 1930s, and then watch this one again. And remember, it's only a cartoon.

Face it, unless you're over 60, you've been watching re-runs of these guys your whole life, so if you're gonna complain about re-runs, then don't watch them. There's plenty of brand new much-lower-quality cartoons out there for you to complain about.
