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 »

One of the better ones
25 April 2004 | by rbverhoefSee all my reviews

'Chariots of Fur' is a Road Runner vs. Wile E. Coyote cartoon and it was released in 1994. Although it is made so many years after the others it fits perfectly in the series and in my opinion this is one of the better and more funny ones. Coyote tries to catch Road Runner with simple bird seed, a fake road and even a Halloween cactus costume.

Although most gags were pretty predictable they made me smile a lot. The jokes that were written on the screen worked very well. The little interlude where the Coyote plays the harp is brilliant, that ends with a perfectly timed gag. The animation is better than normal, which is not strange for a cartoon from the nineties, and the music fits that animation wonderfully. A great cartoon.
