In their first appearance in a Warner Bros. cartoon, the Coyote (Carnivorous vulgaris) and The Road Runner (Accelerati incredibulis) launch their neverending series of chases through the desert, and The Coyote begins his relationship with the Acme Corporation in his quest for the perfect Road Runner-catching device.

The Road Runner's only vocabulary, "Beep, Beep!", was inspired by background artist Paul Julian
who would make the sound while rushing down the hallways of the animator's offices. For this short, the sound effect was produced by Treg Brown
who used an electronic horn called a Klaxon. When the gadget disappeared, Mel Blanc
mimicked the sound for the second Road Runner short Beep, Beep
(1952). That sound effect became the standard for all Road Runner cartoons thereafter. See more
