My favorite post-64 Road-Runner cartoon!
23 March 2006 | by wile_E2005See all my reviews

Now, my favorite Road-Runner cartoon of all-time is "Adventures of the Road-Runner" and I also like a good amount of 1952-1964 entries in the series. However, the 1965-1966 Road-Runner cartoons (which were actually made at another studio rather than Warner Bros.) are sometimes lame, and occasionally good. This one is the best. It is a pretty funny parody of those old 60s spy movies and TV shows, down to the music (which is done by Walter Greene, rather than Carl Stalling, Milt Franklyn or even Bill Lava)! Here, Wile E. Coyote finds a spy kit, and then, wearing an old-fashioned spy costume (a trenchcoat and hat) tries to get the Road-Runner with sleeping gas, a timer bomb, and even an antique car rigged with James Bond-style equipment! Unlike the other ones I like, which were made at Warner Bros. Animation, this one was produced at DePatie-Freleng (the studio that did the "Pink Panther"), the company that animated Looney Tunes from 1964-1967 (and in 1981-1984, providing new animation for those Looney Tunes compilation films), and it uses the stylized but bizarre black-background WB titles with the swirling colored lines at the intro. Nonetheless, I love it and wholeheartedly recommend it to those who love cartoons that parody spy movies!
