I can’t think of anything I’ve seen on the Net recently that has made me happier than when I stumbled onto this new Roadrunner cartoon!
Generally speaking, I was always more of a Bugs Bunny et al guy than a Roadrunner guy, but still..some of those Roadrunner cartoons were hilarious (my brothers and I still mimic Wile E.’s physicall reaction when he hits the bum note on the dynamite-filled piano)!
The twist is, this new short is done with the latest computer animation technology and look, which I usually find kind of creepy when applied to cartoons I’m used to seeing in 2D (The Simpsons and Charlie Brown come to mind).
I’ll take the 2D classics any day of the week, but this….THIS…is actually as funny as the classic Wile E. Coyote and the Roadrunner cartoons were, so somehow, in my brain, it’s like a modern return to my childhood or something.
Happy (nostalgic) boy, right here. What do you think?
