Storyline

Wile E. Coyote is so hungry that he forms a chicken out of mud, bakes it, and tries to eat it, causing one of his teeth to fall out. He throws the mud bird away when a real one comes along - the Road Runner, who runs so fast that he literally burns up the road, setting Wile E.'s feet on fire! Wile E. schemes to catch the Road Runner using a rope, a sling-shot, a gun on a spring, a rotating circle of spiked balls, a booby-trapped ladder, and a load of rocks.

Desert D.I.Y. genius
6 February 2004 | by Chip_douglasSee all my reviews

Everybody knows While E. Coyote is the real star of the Road Runner cartoons (after all, he has more of a personality) and occasionally we get a moment alone with him at the start of `his' cartoons. The starving superstar attempts to bake some mud (shaped in the form of a chicken) in his home-made oven. This inspired gag features the first of several elaborate punchlines that set `There they Go-go-go' apart from other R.R. shorts.

Out of all the Loony tunes, Wile E. and Road Runner probably break the fourth wall the most (presumably because they don't speak). The knowing looks While E. constantly throws at the camera are classic. At one point he even gestures to the audience to come closer, as if to let us in on his next cunning plan. After all, he is a selfproclaimed genius.

It is especially good to see Wile E. relying on his own wits and inventions instead of the usual Acme products for a change. He is able to use lots of left over material from the local abandoned mines and army bases (including a ladder, a wheel, some dynamite and even a unused rocket shell). But where did he find that tiny pink umbrella? Perhaps he should try to sell some of his ideas to the Acme company. They might give him a discount on their products.
