    "Man VS Cartoon" On TruTV: Making Wiley Coyote's Dreams Come True

    Has anyone else seen this show? The premise is that since every one of Wiley Coyote's mad scientist contraptions failed to catch the Road Runner, (OK, there is one very rare episode in which the Coyote did catch the RR, only to let him go) a group of technical geeks from New Mexico Tech, along with a handful of stuntmen will improve upon the Coyote's original designs in order to make the contraptions successful.

    Man VS Cartoon

    Of course, it's totally absurd in a mindless, "Myth Busters blow shit up" sort of way. The show airs at 10PM(EST) Saturday evenings on TruTV, and repeats throughout the week.

    Only in America can grown men get paid to blow up bird seed with a fucking missile ..... on TV.




    I was very disturbed though that I did not see one single goddamn ANVIL in that clip.

    Go to the actual website.

    Hot Air Balloon Anvil Drop

    The Coyote rides in a hot air balloon and attempts to drop an anvil on the Road Runner far below. But when he releases the weight, his balloon goes out of control. The Coyote free-falls to Earth, and of course the anvil lands on his own head.

    Our engineers go up into the sky in a hot air balloon. Although the balloon is tethered, strong winds present a challenge for the anvil drop – especially when it requires the split-second timing and pinpoint accuracy necessary to hit a moving target 500 feet below. To increase their odds, the team devises a bombsight using two closed circuit TV systems. As they attempt to recreate this classic cartoon gag, their chance of success will come down to timing, geometry and luck.

    It really was disappointing. Rather than seeing the overall humor in the absurdity of the task at hand, the engineers became so wrapped up in the "project" that you got the general idea that they felt as if they were charged with splitting the atom. The underlying air of self importance really wrecked what could have been a very funny show.
