Rabid Rider was a quite entertaining funny computer animated Road Runner short
18 December 2010 | by (Baton Rouge, LA) – See all my reviews

This is the computer animated Road Runner (and While E. Coyote) short that preceded the computer animated Yogi Bear feature. I found it quite funny with all the expected slapsticky hijinks that followed for the unfortunate Coyote. And knowing the Road Runner will always be sticking his tongue at him is another nice touch. So this was a mostly entertaining short. If there were any disappointments, it was (1) no Latin-describing words or even the actual nouns of the characters or stop-motion that ensured during what I just described that you always got from any Chuck Jones-directed opus of those characters and (2) the short seemed too brief. Still, Rabid Rider was a nice surprise of a short before the main feature...
