Shot and Bothered is another of the terrible Rudy Larriva Road Runner cartoons made in the 1960s when Warner Bros. contracted Format Films to make the shorts. The animation is inferior and much of it is cheaply reused from scene to scene. At least the colors are bright. The music will have you clawing at your ears until they are bloody stumps. The gags are rarely funny or smart. If Chuck Jones was a surgeon, Rudy Larriva was a lumberjack. There's one particularly galling gag where the Coyote drops a huge boulder into a canyon to act as a roadblock for the Road Runner. If Jones had done this bit, he would have come up with some funny way to have the Road Runner get around or through this obstacle. Plus you can damn sure bet it would have been well-animated. Larriva doesn't know how to craft a funny gag and could care less about quality animation, so he just has the Road Runner disappear as he comes into contact with the boulder. Then cracks appear in the boulder and it falls apart. The worst part of this entire failed gag is the Coyote's reaction. It's like Larriva didn't know where to go with the joke so he just skips ahead to the next one. The ending of this short has to be among the worst and laziest I've ever seen.
