The best of the late-60s Looney Tunes era!
5 February 2006 | by wile_E2005See all my reviews

Now, I feel that when Bill Hendricks took over being executive producer at Warner Bros. Animation in 1967, the studio completely changed. (Some say it was Warner Bros. merging with this newer company called Seven Arts, which happened after a few cartoons were produced at the new studio. Since then, it has been a roller-coaster of mediocrity. Some were pretty good (the Cool Cat cartoons), and some ranged from mediocre-to-bad (the Daffy vs. Speedy toons of the era), and some were so-so. However, THIS episode is just about PERFECT! It experiments with new characters, despite them seeming to be knock-offs of Wile E. Coyote and the Road-Runner. Another thing that makes it pretty good is how it uses no dialogue, but pantomime actions and such, while most late-60s WB (or W-7) cartoons rely heavily on dialogue and puns. The music is sometimes a bit catchy (despite being written by Bill Lava, who is usually NO Carl Stalling), and it mixes the classic Looney Tunes sound effects with the Hanna-Barbera SFX (this is ironic, since WB would wind up owning H-B in the mid-90s!) I find Rapid Rabbit a bit similar to the Road-Runner, since he knows to outwit the Quick Brown Fox, and he only uses a clown horn to warn of his presence. (He jumps up at one part to jerk his feet Road-Runner style, too.) Unfortunately, the print Cartoon Network and Boomerang were airing was in pretty bad shape, why, the opening and closing logos (they are the completely-strange, stylized and abstract Warner-Seven Arts titles with the "modernized" Looney Tunes theme) have a dark-red tint to them! I sure hope this cartoon gets perfectly restored someday and put on a DVD! I'd definitely buy it!
