Storyline

Ever wonder who was the fastest Road Runner or Speedy Gonzales? This cartoon aimed to answer that all-important question between two of Warner Brothers' speediest characters. Of course, the race (set in an American desert) wouldn't be interesting without Wile E. Coyote or Sylvester trying to nab the bird and mouse. Both the hard-luck coyote and the puddy tat use a variety of tactics to grap their respective dinners, all which (of course) fail. In the end, Wile E. and Sylvester use a supersonic jet to pass their prey at the finish line (and "win" the race), but their vehicle quickly careens over the cliff. The poor puddy tat fall down over the cliff, just like Wile E. has so many times. Written by Brian Rathjen <briguy_52732@yahoo.com>

Road Runner vs. Speedy Gonzalez
26 April 2004 | by rbverhoefSee all my reviews

The fastest mouse from Mexico, Speedy Gonzalez, finally in a race against the Texas road burner, Road Runner. They are gonna decide who is the fastest but of course Sylvester and Wile E. Coyote try to catch the two racers before they reach the finish. They do not succeed, of course, but there is a nice little surprise in the end.

This cartoon could have been hilarious, considering the possibilities. Instead they have chosen to use the best gags from earlier and better cartoons. I recognized all the gags from previous Road Runner vs. Wile E. Coyote cartoons, but I have to say that I still smiled. The reason for that was Sylvester who simply added to the gags. Still, he made sure this cartoon was pretty enjoyable.
