Animaniacs Wiki


The Road Runner is a Looney Tunes star who very occasionally appeared on Animaniacs with his opponent, Wile E. Coyote.

Personality[]

The Road Runner is quick and clever, as opposed to Wile E.'s incompetence and addiction to using ACME products in his sorry attempts to catch him. After Wile E. fails to catch him, the Road Runner mockingly says "Beep Beep" and/or raspberries him before running away.

Wile E. and the Road Runner usually "speak" by holding signs. The only thing the Road Runner literally says is "Beep! Beep!".

History[]

Animaniacs (Original Series)[]

While in New Mexico, Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner flew by Slappy and Skippy Squirrel when Slappy was taking Skipper to meet Vina Walleen. In his true fashion, the Road Runner cleverly diverted Wile E. towards the road at the right time and watched him crash into the coach.

The next time Slappy and the Road Runner crossed wouldn't end with the latter on top however. Slappy sped fast the Road Runner in her sports car and the car's speed was too much for the bird - to the point he stopped and showed the audience sign saying "I quit!" after Slappy runs over Wile E.. This would be bad timing, as Buttons and Mindy are riding on a fire hydrant the speed of Slappy's car loosened from it's base, which comes landing on Road Runner.

Animaniacs (Reboot)[]

The Road Runner is among the cartoon characters seen in Dot's musical number in the reboot episode, "Suffragette City," popping his tongue out twice as Dot mentions him.

Trivia[]

  • Road Runner being outran by Slappy's car and crushed by Buttons, Mindy and the fire hydrant is infamously known as a rare time the Road Runner was humiliated/harmed. One of the other times occurred in Tiny Toon Adventures: How I Spent My Vacation when Road Runner was ran over by a mail van that "breaks for coyotes."
