Wile E. vs. Bugs
5 August 2004 | by TheOtherFoolSee all my reviews

Early Wile E. Coyote isn't chasing the Roadrunner, but Bugs Bunny! He's pulling these schemes we know so well from his later adventures with the miep-miep character, and obviously each time is losing out, getting blown up no less than 5 times.

The schemes he pulls are pretty funny, although to me it doesn't match up to the episodes with the Roadrunner. In particular the overuse of his (annoying) voice doesn't work well. We hear him blabbing he's a genious about 10 times. Alright, we get it.

Still, I had some good laughs from this decent cartoon. Interesting for those into the Coyote character I suppose. 6/10.
