Sick of the Road Runner yet? Too bad!

Here's yet another bit of miscellaneous animation featuring the Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote. In 1966, CBS aired "The Road Runner Show", a compilation that, as I understand it, featured a few Jones classics and debuted the then-new Rudy Larriva shorts.

Robert McKimson directed several bumpers (I have no clue how many) with short gags like the Coyote playing tennis with a grenade and disguising himself as a Road Runner. These are largely lost, but somebody posted some to Youtube a while back. Enjoy.

Those bumpers were intact when The Roadrunner Show aired on Teletoon a few years back!
There was a few more, a watercooler gag, a motorcycle gag, a manhole gag and an art gag.
Not sure if there was more than that...?

I have a bunch of those RR show bumpers from the Teletoon broadcasts kicking around here somewhere... I'll try to dig them up someday.

They'd make great DVD bonus material...

The Road Runner dressed as a tiny Wile E. Coyote? I actually did the same thing this Halloween! Except I only just had the coyote suit, and it was the same size as the real Wile E. is.
