Jeep "Sunshine" ad...Road Runner cameo

There's a recent ad for Jeep that has been played to death on TV. In it, a jeep drives through various culturally significant scenes...World War II, Woodstock, Jane Goodall and chimps, a Devo video, etc. Believe it or not, they even have the jeep racing the Road Runner and Coyote. Yes, folks, it's ANOTHER commercial featuring Wile E. and Roadrunner. After some research, I found that the song is called "Sunshine" by Jonathan Edwards.

Just saw this ad last night and I was going to mention it to you guys, but as always, you are already on top of things. Good job!

Does anybody knows if the short of Road runner in this ad is from a particular episode or not?

It's probably worth mentioning that, chronologically, the Road Runner clip isn't in the right order. I can't recall which cartoon it's from off the top of my head, but I do know that it's from the mid-1950s, yet the commercial puts it somewhere in the 1970s.
