| Funny cartoon
It is amazing to make something funny that uses the same formula over and over again. 'Zoom and Bored' is another cartoon from the Road Runner vs. Coyote series and again most of the predictable gags work. The Coyote, here Famishus Vulgaris, tries to catch the Road Runner, here Birdibus Zippibus, with a harpoon gun, some bees and a brick wall. Especially the moments involving the brick wall are great and very funny.

only for the brick wall sequence I would recommend this cartoon. Fortunately other things are nice too. The sequence with the bees is pretty funny as well. Other sequences at least made me smile. Director Chuck Jones has created another fine cartoon that is quite entertaining.
