Storyline

The desert in the U.S. southwest is the natural habitat of the Road Runner, a high-octane, cartoon bird who runs so fast on the desert's roadways that he leaves a trail of flame or causes pavement to ripple, distort, or roll up like a carpet. This speedy bird is unrelentingly chased by a hungry coyote named Wile E., who, though believing himself to be a genius, repeatedly fails to catch the Road Runner with his endless supply of ACME Corporation gadgets, weapons, and other paraphernalia. Episodes of this television series contain three theatrical cartoons, one with the Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote, one with Tweety Bird and Sylvester Cat, and one with other characters from Warner Brothers' cartoon classics. Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

The "Road Runner Show" is filled with pure classics. It consists of one Wile E. Coyote and The Road Runner, one Sylvester and Tweety, and one random cartoon. Unlike what ABC did, in butchering the cartoons when guns and weapons were used, these are original and uncut. The reason is to watch this show on Teletoon is to wait for one of two classic Sylvester/Tweety battles: Gift Wrapped; which takes place on Christmas, with it's cowboys and Indians segment, and the parody of Little Red Riding Hood with some "The Honeymooners" added in. The random cartoon can be just about anything except Bugs Bunny. I've seen Foghorn Leghorn, Ralph and Sam (Wile E. Coyote trying to steal sheep from a sheep dog), Speedy Gonzales vs. Sylvester, Sylvester (sometimes with Sylvester Jr.) vs. The Baby Kangaroo, and an all-star cartoon featuring Daffy Duck, Elmer Fudd, and the Ralph the Dog that is featured in the Foghorn Leghorn cartoons. Great stuff! If only there was a place to see Bugs Bunny on T.V., I'd be happy. Maybe they'll show the Bugs vs. Wile E. confrontation in which Bugs takes The RRs place, and was so good, they later had Bugs face a talking Wile E. several times...
