Trivia

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.

Aren't we all doomed to look over a four-leaf clover at some point or other?
25 October 2006 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

So this is where it all started. From here on, Wile E. Coyote (cue scientific name implying gluttony) would come up with an infinite number of ways to get the Road Runner (cue scientific name implying speed), but would always end up maiming himself. OK, so maybe it gets a little repetitive to always have him do this, but how can you not like it? "Fast and Furry-ous" is everything that one can expect in one of these cartoons. If nothing else, they remind us that the more you try to harm others, the more you get harmed. And they have a great way of showing it. These guys are the original road warriors. Definitely a cartoon classic.
