Storyline

The Road Runner opens a dawn on the desert, pursued by longtime enemy Wile E. Coyote. Witnessing this lengthy chase on television are two young boys, one an impresionable youth who feels sympathy for the Coyote, the other a more cynical lad who is studying psychiatry. The psychiatry student tests his knowledge on his impressionable friend, and then both return to watch the Road Runner, and in the process Wile E. Coyote explains to them his motivation for pursuing the fleet-footed bird. Written by Michael Daly

The footage that had since been left on the cutting room floor was unseen for decades until some of this appeared in Cartoon Network's "Toonheads" special Toonheads: The Lost Cartoons (2000). This short had not been seen in its original 26-minute form since its original theatrical release, but has now been released on the DVD collection "Looney Tunes Golden Collection, Volume 2".

Quotes

Ralph Phillips: The thing I don't understand is why he wants the Road Runner in the first place.
Wile E. Coyote: A legitimate question, young man, deserving a legitimate answer.
[he shows a picture of the Road Runner during this whole scene as he says:]
Wile E. Coyote: Now then, I can easily understand why it should puzzle you that a person of my intelligence, I.Q. 207 super genius, should devote his valuable time chasing this ridiculous road runner, this bird that appears to be so skinny, scrawny, stringy, unappetizing, anemic, ugly and ...

Good one!
8 July 2005 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

When this show was on I watched it every time I could! I thought that the characters were really funny and all had great personalities. The animation in My opinion was crisp, clean, and really clear. Not to mention beautiful! Most of the characters in this show are hilarious like the Looney Tunes characters that we all love. in My opinion these characters are the funniest and talented ever seen. In fact, The things that goes on in this series' cartoons are in My opinion nuts which that is what makes them hilarious! There are so many to like and laugh at and the silly things they do! If you like the original Looney Tunes then I strongly recommend that you watch this show!
