Another case of being surprisingly really good
30 May 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This reviewer says surprisingly, because while the Roadrunner/Wile E. Coyote series say so many hugely enjoyable cartoons, the best of them are classics, the series did suffer from the tighter deadlines and smaller budgets in the mid-late-60s and while there were some fun cartoons still the series never returned to its former glory days.

It still doesn't return to those former glory days with 'Fur of Flying', or any of the CGI Roadrunner/Wile E. Coyote cartoons, but these cartoons and pretty much the ones made after 1968 don't disappoint anywhere near as much as the Rudy Larriva efforts from the late 60s, where only three of eleven of those cartoons are watchable and no more than that.

'Fur of Flying' isn't perfect (then again not many things are). Like the previous CGI cartoon 'Coyote Falls', which considering how much of a disaster it could have been with the wrong execution was really well made and enjoyable, it could have been wilder and loonier in feel. More of a problem is that, for a series that on average has cartoons of 6 or 7 minutes, at just three minutes it's too short and it feels a tad rushed pacing-wise once or twice as a result. 'Fur of Flying', again like 'Coyote Falls', surprisingly really impressed me and it goes very well with the feature film it proceeded in cinemas 'Legend of the Guardians' (whereas 'Coyote Falls' was succeeded by a far inferior feature film).

Animation-wise, 'Fur of Flying' is very well done, vibrant and colourful with meticulously drawn and detailed backgrounds and both Roadrunner and Coyote are modelled well with no obvious signs of stiffness. The music is lively, cleverly fitted, rousingly and beautifully orchestrated and has much character, nothing repetitive, canned, cheap or discordant here, and it fits well with the action.

Once again, 'Fur of Flying' entertains hugely and executes all its humour well for a cartoon so short. The gags and traps are very funny to hilarious and timed beautifully, also looking good in the animation without being hugely imaginative (not that it needed to be this said). The story is charming and never feels dull, like 'Coyote Falls' the outcomes and such are not surprising if you are as familiar with the Roadrunner/Wile E. Coyote series so much but nothing feels tired here. Once again, a very good job is done maintaining the trademark personalities of the two characters, and while Roadrunner is fun and not annoying and too bland-plot-device-like Coyote, having always been funnier and more rounded, makes more of an impression.

Overall, another case of being surprisingly really good. 8/10 Bethany Cox
