Is saved in the end
25 April 2004 | by rbverhoefSee all my reviews

In 'War and Pieces' the Road Runner is introduced as Burn-em Upus Asphaltus and the Coyote as Caninus Nevous Rex. From that moment we see the Coyote using a grenade, himself as an arrow where he loses his pants (you have to see it yourself to understand what that means), a rope and some invisible paint.

Although some of the moments made me smile, like the lost pants, most of the time the gags do not really work here. The invisible paint has some nice touches although I think that some opportunities were missed there. The cartoon is saved in the end where the Coyote has a short visit to China and he encounters a Chinese Road Runner. It is the only real laugh in this short.
