Storyline

The Road Runner opens a dawn on the desert, pursued by longtime enemy Wile E. Coyote. Witnessing this lengthy chase on television are two young boys, one an impresionable youth who feels sympathy for the Coyote, the other a more cynical lad who is studying psychiatry. The psychiatry student tests his knowledge on his impressionable friend, and then both return to watch the Road Runner, and in the process Wile E. Coyote explains to them his motivation for pursuing the fleet-footed bird. Written by Michael Daly

would have made a pretty great show
30 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This failed animated pilot for what would have been an ongoing television show, features Wile E. Coyote narrating his own exploits as he tries to catch the ever elusive Road Runner (yes Wile talks in this one), all this is watched by two kids who are watching the new Road-Runner show. It features the bat-man suit footage from "Gee Whiz-z-z-z-z-z-z", as well as the whole "From A to Z-Z-Z-Z" short, as one of the kids watching the cartoon just so happened to be Ralph Phillips. I found this 26 minute feature to be fascinating despite the reused footage. Who knew Road Runner was so VERY delicious. No wonder Wile E. craves him so. Because this failed as a pilot, it would later be edited into 2 separate later shorts. The whole thing can be found as an extra on Disc 2 of the Looney Tunes Golden Collection Volume 2 and in my opinion is very much worth a watch or two....or eight.

My Grade: A+
