The Roadrunner is a male Toon resembling a semi-anthropomorphic roadrunner.

Description Edit

This crafty Toon, resembling a roadrunner, was the frequent prey of fellow Toon Wile E. Coyote, who wished to catch and eat him, and used gizmo after gizmo produced by Acme to achieve it, though he continually failed. The Roadrunner and Coyote starred in cartoons that seemed to essentially consist of filming the Coyote's endless failed attempts to kill the Roadrunner, which continually ended in slapstick.

The Roadrunner also starred in a series of comics known as Beep-Beep the Roadrunner, in which he spoke only in rhyme, a trait he did not have in his cartoons. This trait was, however, eventually dropped in the Looney Tunes comics series, in which he also featured.[1]

Behind the scenes Edit

The Roadrunner is a guest appearance of the Roadrunner cartoon character from the popular series of cartoons featuring himself and Wile E. Coyote. He first appeared in Disney lore in Who Framed Roger Rabbit alongside Wile E. Coyote, and was again mentioned in WAK! #21: The Tooniest Paper in Duckburg! and the comment section of Joe Torcivia's The Issue At Hand. Don Rosa also snuck in a cameo of the character in the background of one panel of his story His Fortune On The Rocks.

Notes and References Edit

  1. This is mentioned on Joe Torcivia's The Issue At Hand. While this is accurate to the real-life media, Torcivia states all of this in a response to The Society of the Rhyming Dove, placing this within the mock-narrative starring the in-universe counterpart of Torcivia and thus confirming that it is true in-universe.
