Burn-Em Upus Asphaltus
21 September 2015 | by utgard14See all my reviews

The last Road Runner short directed by Chuck Jones in the classic era before he left Warner Bros. While it's not among his best, it is enjoyable and a fitting end to a great series. The animation is crisp with lovely colors and nice backgrounds. The music, provided by Bill Lava, is better than his average output but still weak compared to previous Looney Tunes composers. The gags are mostly funny. Love the bit where Wile E. Coyote loses his "pants." Other good gags include ACME invisible paint and Secrets of a Harem. The highlight of the short is the ending where Wile E. meets a different Road Runner from the other side of the world and tries his luck at catching that one.
