  Greater Roadrunner - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Greater Roadrunner (Geococcyx californianus) is a large, long-legged bird in the cuckoo family, Cuculidae.
This bird was the model for the Warner Bros. Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner cartoons.
However, unlike the cartoon, the song of this bird is a dove-like coo.

 Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
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 coyote, named Wile E. Coyote (a pun on "wily coyote").
These cartoons can easily be distinguished from Chuck Jones's cartoons because they feature the modern "Abstract WB" Looney Tunes opening and closing sequences, and they use the same music cues over and over again in the cartoons, composed by William Lava.
Tech E. coyote was the tech expert of the Loonatics (influence by the past cartoons with many of the machines ordered by Wile E. from Acme, and has magnetic hands and the ability molecularly regenerate himself (influenced by the many times in which he painfully failed to capture roadrunner).

A Roadrunner cartoon is thrown in for good measure.
Roadrunner’s narrow brushes with death at the hand of his nemesis, Wily Coyote, illustrate the archetypal conflict between good and evil, life and death, innocence and guilt, a duality so prevalent in western culture.
A Roadrunner cartoon is a natural lead-in to the more complex story of “Little Red Riding Hood.” In this case a wolf, first cousin to the coyote, is trying to catch and devour an innocent.

 TechnoFILE Reviews "The Villain, and Cowboy" on DVD
The third character, who doesn't fit in with the cartoon characters but who is just as big and dumb as the Merrie Melody bad guys is Handsome Stranger, played by a young Arnold Schwarzenegger.
The action is obviously cartoon, right down to Cactus Jack's painting a fake tunnel onto a rock wall (and if you've ever seen the Roadrunner you know exactly what happens).
The first couple of times you see this type of thing it's pretty funny, but where the cartoons were only about six minutes long, the gags here are stretched over a 90 minute movie, and that stretched our credulity and our patience.

 Critical Theory and Wile E. Coyote: a Kiddie Matinee essay by Doyle Greene!!!
As Thompson argued, “The ultimate ideological result of the assumption that cartoons were for children was a trivialization of the medium.” Indeed, by marginalizing these cartoons to mere objects of adolescent amusement, the “cognitive” value of the cartoon is effectively and completely negated, specifically any validity as political critique.
Unlike Disney’s cartoon feature films, the cartoons of the Warner Bros. auteurs (Jones, Tex Avery, Bob Clampett, Friz Freling) routinely reference and violate the cinematic barrier between spectator and audience: Jones’ Duck Amuck (1953) is legendary in its deconstruction of background, foreground, audio synchronization, and the animation process itself.
The Coyote’s occasional attempts to “seduce” the Roadrunner fail based on the assumption that the Roadrunner is indeed a male instead of possibly being a female.

Using his favorite cliff to watch for the Roadrunner, Wile E. spots him coming on the exact road at which he aimed his catapult.
Let's see how much force the catapult has to exert to fling the boulder far enough and fast enough to crush the bird when both the Roadrunner and the boulder are traveling in the same direction.
Obviously this is not possible (even in the cartoon world!), so instead of making the turn Wile E. Coyote goes flying off the curve at a velocity of 125 mils per hour.

Clampett cartoon of 1941 which is one of the earliest Elmer Fudd/Bugs Bunny face-offs.
Popular gag used in Warner Brothers cartoons in which character A says a phrase, character B loudly contradicts it, and the argument goes back and forth, until character B suddenly adopts character A’s position, causing character A to adopt character B’s position, which was character B’s intent all along.
The second is that the studio used a system of rotating credits between 1937 and 1944, under which a writer might get credit for a cartoon to which he had contributed little, yet might not receive any credit for a cartoon to which he had made major contributions.

 Wiley Coyote Meets Roadrunner
Roadrunner and Wile E. Coyote are used as narrative metaphors to analyze how activist entrepreneurial strategies involve setting off chaos effects.
In the Roadrunner story, Roadrunner is a linear character, a romantic hero who runs a straight line from point A to point B, simply stepping to one side, to observe chaos engulfing his pursuer and nemesis, Wile Coyote.
Roadrunner is like the activist, using simple tactics to let the effects of chaos unravel the plans and schemes of Wile Coyote.

 "Nu, pogodi!" (1969) - IMDb user comments   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-31)
People who made the cartoon are professionals at working for children audience, and their natural kindness and talent was put into this cartoon, even if inspired by some other Western work, but entirely capable of standing by itself and to get the highest points for being a good, non-aggressive comedy with kind humor.
The first cartoon of the series was released in 1969, the second in 1970 and the series continued for sixteen episodes until the death of Anatoli Papanov, the voice of the wolf, in 1987.
Just like in your typical 'Roadrunner' cartoon, our sympathies are split between the characters – we certainly don't want the young innocent hare to be devoured, but we do feel sorry for the wolf as his endeavors fail miserably time after time.

That's because there's everything you need for a funny cartoon in one place: winding roads, peaks, canyons, cacti, and boulders, all of which defy conventional physics.

 Matthew Hunter's Unofficial Wile e. Coyote Page
Jones first created Wile E. Coyote in 1949, in a cartoon called "Fast and Furry-Ous." his historic first encounter between Wile E. and the Road Runner was an experiment originally, a parody of chase cartoons.
Soldiers would walk out on the movie matinees shown at their bases after watching the cartoon, and would return for more when the reel was rerun.
Most of the cartoons from this era, though they get a bashing from critics (Leonard Maltin, in his book "Of Mice and Magic", calls the films as a whole "abysmal" and the Road Runner series "...witless in every sense of the word") are at least enjoyable.

In another series of Warner Bros. cartoons, the character design of Wile E. Coyote was copied and renamed "Ralph Wolf." In this series, Ralph continually attempted to steal sheep from a flock being guarded by the eternally vigilant Sam Sheepdog.
At the end of every cartoon, he and the sheepdog would stop what they were doing, punch a timeclock, and go home for the day.

 The American Enterprise: In Praise of Television   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-31)
If you took, say, all the subtle character development and Sophoclean irony out of a “Roadrunner” cartoon, you would have an episode of “Itchy and Scratchy.” That is its genius: if you are going to distinguish a cartoon within a cartoon, you must raise its cartoonicity to a higher power.
In “Itchy and Scratchy,” anything that is not pure cartoon has been ruthlessly stripped away to leave us facing the meaningless and gratuitous violence that is the quintessence of cartoon.
At some point, the producers of “The Simpsons” began to realize the potential of “Itchy and Scratchy” and decided to devote whole episodes to the cartoon industry, thus giving the creators a chance to indulge in the arch, self-reflexive postmodernism that is the hallmark of their style.

 IGN: Comics in Context #76: The Wabbit in Winter
The great Warners cartoons of the 1930s through the early 1960s were a continuation of the great tradition of the slapstick comedies of the silent era.
Think of how many classic Warners cartoons have very little dialogue (like Tweety and Sylvester shorts) or none at all (the Roadrunner series), and are instead sustained by a succession of slapstick gags.
Roadrunner cartoons, or the way shorts like Bully for Bugs and Long-Haired Hare build from gag to gag to climaxes that (in the latter cartoon, literally) bring the house down, or cartoon expert Greg ford's analysis of how director Friz Freleng works endlessly funny variations on a single gag in shorts like High Diving Hare.
