Something about this seems familiar...
23 November 2003 | by See all my reviews

When I first saw this cartoon years ago, I was convinced that Ralph had to be Wile E. Coyote with red paint on his nose. After all, Ralph follows Wile E.'s moves to a T, from ordering products from the ACME company (the bedsprings on the feet), to falling off the cliff (complete with the bird's eye view that we've all grown to love on the Wile E./Road Runner cartoons), and even holding up the little umbrella when he's almost flattened by a boulder. Even now that I'm older and know the difference between the two cartoon characters, I watch this cartoon and I still feel a strong Wile E. Coyote sense to it (watch any of the Road Runner cartoons directed by Chuck Jones and you'll understand what I mean). I don't know if it's because of that feeling or not, but this is one of my favorites, hands down. When Ralph starts seeing Sam all over the place is a classic running gag that I love watching, no matter how many times it gets copied. I recommend this cartoon to any avid fan, no doubt about it.
