Not a razzberry, but not a recommendation either.

"Run, Run, Sweet Road Runner" marked Rudy Larriva's directorial debut at Warner's (he directed a few Mr. Magoo shorts at UPA in the 1950's). Larriva also did the story, which is dominated by two slow, elaborate set-pieces. First, the Coyote erects a series of signs which lead to a bowl of bird seed shaded by covered spikes. But he leaves his binoculars where they focus the sun's rays on the rope which suspends the potentially lethal device. Then he disguises a lightning rod as a female Road Runner, and does a rain dance to attract a thunderstorm. Lightning strikes the disguised rod, which is caressed by the bird, but nothing happens. The Coyote summons another bolt, and gets it. This film isn't repellently tedious, but fails to provide the fast, funny entertainment of earlier Road Runner cartoons.
