Sometimes, you just gotta watch the Road Runner

Here's a cartoon that isn't on DVD yet. The fact that it isn't is a crime that should be punishable by flying firecrackers. In fact, I'm not sure it was ever on an official VHS release, either. "Lickety Splat" (1961) is one of a string of Road Runner cartoons that Chuck Jones directed before calling it quits at the Warner Bros. studio. This particular cartoon is about as pure Chuck Jones as you can get, considering he recieves both direction and writing credit.It's one of my favorites and always manages to make me laugh. So if you need a Roadrunner fix like I did today, here's the cure for what ails you!

Let us cross our fingers that this cartoon will be released by next year and beyond.

I already saw this in a Looney Tunes Video Show videotape but the release depends of the provinces. Mine's was available in the volume 2 instead of #6. Pure good cartoon.

The running gag with the dynamite darts was gold!
