  Wile E. Coyote : THE LOONEY TUNES SPOT
Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner are cartoon characters from a series of Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies cartoons, created by Chuck Jones for Warner Brothers.
The Road Runner shorts are very simple in their premise: the Road Runner, a flightless cartoon bird (loosely based on a real bird, the Greater Roadrunner), is chased down the highways of the Southwestern United States by a hungry toon coyote, named Wile E. Coyote (a pun on "wily coyote").
Sometimes the episode is concluded with Wile E. being flattened by a truck (with the Road Runner grinning from the rear window).

Wile E. Coyote (also known simply as "The Coyote") and the Road Runner are cartoon characters from a series of Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies cartoons, created by Chuck Jones in 1948 for Warner Brothers.
Chuck Jones once said of his most famous protagonist and antagonist that "Wile E. is my reality, Bugs Bunny is my goal." He originally created the Road Runner cartoons as a parody of traditional "cat and mouse" cartoons (such as Tom and Jerry) which were increasingly popular at the time.

 Compare Prices and Read Reviews on Stars of Space Jam - Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote at Epinions.com
This collection of Wile E. Coyote/Road Runner cartoons was released in the wake of Space Jam (I have also reviewed the Tasmanian Devil collection), a feature film in which all of the most famous Looney Tunes characters made an appearance alongside ex-NBA star Michael Jordan.
The Coyote and Road Runner were both created by Chuck Jones (1912-2002) for 1949's Fast and Furry-ous; the cartoon featured the Coyote's failed attempts to catch (and eat) the Road Runner in a sparse desert setting, despite unending supplies coming from a firm ironically called ACME (in Greek, acme means “the highest point”, “peak”).
Later in 1952, a second Coyote/Road Runner pairing was released, and Jones was to direct Wile E. in three different series over the next twelve years: in a speaking role with Bugs, as Ralph Wolf opposite Sam Sheepdog, and with the Road Runner.

Throughout Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote's careers in over two dozen Warner Bros. cartoons chronicling the duo's encounters, their classic chase formula has never lost its tension.
Wile E.'s ineptitude, possibly a by-product of his distracted obsession with catching Road Runner, is compounded only by the Acme company's products - which may work for other customers, but seem never to work for Wile E., who repeatedly risks life and limb counting on their effectiveness.
When the speedy Road Runner whizzes by, friction causes the road and Wile E.'s feet to catch on fire, sending the coyote into a frantic craze, in which he attempts to capture his prey with a rope, a sling-shot, a rotating circle of spiked balls, a booby-trapped ladder, and a pile of rocks.
