Did You Know?

Goofs

Near the beginning, when Wile has his feet caught in the tar-bucket, he hops away along the road into the distance before he suddenly starts hopping really quickly back the way he came, getting stuck in the tar that he had spread across the road earlier and almost immediately afterwards getting run over by a lorry. However, until that point there was no sign of the lorry chasing him as he hopped frantically back towards the tar; it just suddenly came out of nowhere and hit him. See more »

Roboticus Crappicus
1 August 2016 | by See all my reviews

Dreadful Rudy Larriva-directed Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote short; one of the last produced during the classic era. This is a mess. It's Road Runner and Coyote in name only, as it has nothing in common with the characters I recognize that Chuck Jones spent years bringing to life. In this cartoon we have Wile E. Coyote building a giant robot version of himself which he then uses to capture the Road Runner. Yes, he does actually capture him this time (briefly). He doesn't even use an ACME robot kit or anything either. He builds the robot out of scrap metal he finds after falling off a cliff and landing in a junk pile. The animation is poor but sadly not the worst I've seen from the DePatie-Freleng years. At least the colors are bright. Annoying canned music plays throughout. None of the gags are funny and the pacing is the worst. The ending just happens with no decent build-up. Dumb lazy garbage.
