Wile E. Coyote & Road Runner are considered to be the fourth most popular characters of the Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies series. The two were created by both the magnificent Chuck Jones and Michael Maltese, who actually created the first cartoon, “Fast and Furry-ous“, as a parody of the “cat and prey” trope that was made famous, of course, by Tom & Jerry, as Jones stated he did not like T&J, despite the fact that he directed some T&J later on starting in 1963. While no one really understood it was a parody, the short became popular on it’s own, leading Chuck and Maltese to make some more Road Runner entries up

The Coyote and Road Runner have become one the most beloved and most iconic cartoon characters of all-time (along with the rest of the LT cast of course), not only for it’s the slapstick, lack of dialogue and timing, but it’s hilarious satire on false advertising of the Acme Corporation, used frequently by Wile E. himself. We all love Wile E. because he never gives up on catching the Road Runner and we can identify with his faults and frustration.

In the late 60s, 2 years before Chuck Jones was fired from WB, more Road Runner cartoons were being made, this time under Rudy Larriva and Robert McKimson’s direction. These shorts were, of course, infamous for there low-budgets, television quality animation and redundant musical scores (even Lenoard Maltin himself stated the Larriva RR shorts are “witless in every sense of the word”), though, McKimson’s Road Runners are arguably by far my fav.

Anyway, enjoy watching the cartoon started it all:

And let us not forget the historical moment in 1980′s Soup or Sonic where Wile E., actually finally (sort of) caught the Road Runner.

Beep Beep (The Road Runner): To tickle the mind with the sound of a rhyme, pay what you wish for a rhythm in time.  The words will sing forth like the drop of a dime!
