Belongs down the canyon
29 February 2004 | by Chip_douglasSee all my reviews

The person who decided to edit the lame-o bridge sequences from the `Adventures of the Road Runner' (1962) pilot into two separate cartoons deserves a fate worse than anything the Coyote ever suffered. The only original (though poorly animated) gag is featuring right at the beginning. It involves a Speed Limit sign that is shaped exactly like the Warner Bros logo. It's not even that good, but from here it gets worse fast when we cut to two misplaced characters from 'Peanuts' watching even less attractive footage about 2 inches from their TV screen.

The Kids keep katzenjammering about Road Runner but are interrupted by, of all things, an advertisement for the `Acme Batman suit' from "Gee Whiz-z-z-z!" (1956). Even when they recycle stuff from an earlier cartoon they manage to ruin it with an unnecessary voice-over. And to make matters worse, the kids have to comment on how much they liked it! Not only are the both of them glued to the screen., they hardly ever blink. Its a scary sight and a very bad example. One of them even calls daydreaming a bad habit. What's wrong with them?

Worst of all is the ending, featuring Wile E. talking for almost three full minutes! Didn't he learn he should never speak unless Bugs Bunny is around? Que some boring charts and too many big words, leading to another unfunny joke. The kids don't show up again, making their whole appearance rather useless, like the rest of the cartoon. This clearly does not deserve a title with the word 'Hooray' in it.
