Funny and worth a peek
27 June 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I am a big Looney Tunes fan, and while it is not the best of the Roadrunner and Wile E.Coyote I've seen, it is an improvement on some of their cartoons from their cartoons made around 1965. What I didn't entirely like about The Whizzard of Ow were two or three things. One was the pace, which was uneven, the last minute and a half or so while having some fun and invention felt rushed in particular. Secondly, there was only one gag that didn't quite work and that was the levitating boulder, cool it was to look at, but the gag itself for my liking was rather drawn-out and predictable. Finally, at the end Roadrunner directly harms Coyote and quite harshly too, and while I loved the snakes, alligator and shark, this bothered me because in the older cartoons I don't seem to remember Roadrunner doing that. That said, the cartoon does start off very well with a cool idea and despite its flaws is very funny with some inspired parts such as Pegasus the flying horse, Coyote on a broom(which was like the writers experimenting with old and new ideas and merging them) complete with a very clever mobile gimmick and Coyote's ears falling off at one point. Coyote himself is very crafty and bad ass, very like he is in the old cartoons, which I liked very much. The animation is slick and colourful and the music is quite nice with a quite stirring instrumental in the opening sequence between the two wizards. All in all, worth a peek and very funny but at the same time it didn't wow me over. 7/10 Bethany Cox
