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 »

Chuck Jones's last Road Runner attempt was a gem.
22 December 2003 | by rapt0r_claw-1See all my reviews

CHARIOTS OF FUR (1994) is a great example of the inexperienced CJFP artists' prowess, as they have recreated almost perfectly the Golden Age cartoon style. It is not perfect in this cartoon, since it's their first cartoon, but in SUPERIOR DUCK (1996) you can't tell the difference. This cartoon is equal to TO BEEP OR NOT TO BEEP (1963), which is the last Road Runner cartoon made at Termite Terrace. The rest were made independently. That's a tribute to the young artists at Chuck Jones Film Productions. Jones taught them well.
