The very first cartoon in Warner Bros. popular Wile E. Coyote and Roadrunner series of cartoons. This one has the Coyote chasing the Roadrunner using a rather ingenious invention combining a fridge, a meat grinder, ice cubes, and skis.


(as Charles M. Jones)

Did You Know?


The 'Road Runner' comics were very different from the cartoons: the Road Runner was named Papa Beep, he had three children called the little Beeps (and, in the picture book, a grandfather named Bigbeak Beep, all of whom were depicted as being identical to the cartoon Road Runner). In addition, the Coyote spoke and so did the Road Runner and his children (they spoke in rhyme except for the picture book, which was put out by Golden Books). See more »

The very first
21 April 2004 | by (The Hague, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

'Fast and Furry-ous' is the cartoon that started the chases between Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote. The cartoons with those two characters belong to my favorites. From the opening where Road Runner is introduced with his kind of Latin name Accelerati Incredibulis and Coyote with his kind of Latin name Carnivarious Vulgaris the shorts are always funny.

Funny I say, but also very predictable. With this first cartoon that is a fact as well. May it is the charm of a cartoon like this. You expect something, exactly that will happen, and still it is funny. There is one surprise in this one and that is the ending. I laughed numerous times. If it was really the first one I saw I would have laughed even more. This is a great cartoon.
