Storyline

The coyote's array of failures this time include a dropping safe, a pole vault, a rocket he rides on, a firecracker in a frisbee, giant flypaper, and explosive tennis balls. Everything seems to land him at the bottom of the same canyon. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

The better of the TV Looney Tunes shorts
11 January 2002 | by Betelgeuse-19See all my reviews

Rating: 10/10 Explanation: Anyone should see it. Ranges from excellent to brilliant classic. This one I always thought had 50s-Looney-Tunes-esque art. The sequences of catching the Road Runner are funny and the way as it was on the earlier shorts. Can't be missed.
