Some modern touches don't work but otherwise it is as funny as it ever was
25 February 2004 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

In his ongoing quest to eat a decent meal just once, Coyote is still hunting down the roadrunner, despite a warning from the surgeon general that it can damage your health. Undeterred, Coyote employs bird seed, giant mouse traps (or traps for giant mice?) and springs in an attempt to catch the tricky bird.

Usually the modern versions of Warner Brother cartoons are a bit weak, and there's times where the modern touches are weak here, but on the whole it is on a par with the Coyote/Roadrunner cartoons of back in the day. The plot is the same as it always was and has the usual stuff involving acme devices and big falls. Some of the modern references such as the surgeon general and such don't really fit in but are still relatively funny.

The characters are a little more animated and lively than they used to be; Coyote is a bit funnier than he often can be, but it is Roadrunner who has more of a character to him that usual. This is not to say that they go beyond the comments on the signs and such, but it is still a more of a character cartoon than some of the others I've seen.

Overall this will not win over any people who dislike the basic Roadrunner formula, but it is pretty loyal to the originals in terms of laughs, action and characters.
