Goofs

During the segment with the bow, when it finally goes off and sends the Coyote flying you hear a whoosh as he starts to fly off-screen left, before a loud bang indicating that he has collided with something. The screen then pans to the left a bit and we find that he has crashed into a cactus, but the length of the whoosh was too long for the short distance between the bow and the cactus. See more »

A great Roadrunner-Wile E. Coyote cartoon
18 September 2011 | by See all my reviews

While rather on the short side, Chariots of Fur is a great and very memorable cartoon that reinforces why I love Looney Tunes so much. The animation is very lively, with the character designs staying true yet are more animated and the backgrounds more fluid rather than the cheap and lifeless backgrounds that hindered some of the later Looney Tunes efforts. The music is energetic and compliments the gags very nicely. Speaking of the gags, they are very well-timed and funny while never feeling drawn-out. The characters still impress, Coyote is as cunning as ever, but Roadrunner having more character here was the real surprise in my opinion. All in all, great. 9/10 Bethany Cox
