Does Wile E. Coyote Ever Catch the Roadrunner?

Does Wile E. Coyote Ever Catch the Roadrunner?

The answer is yes! He caught him in the 1980 Chuck Jones produced special, “Bugs Bunny’s Bustin’ Out All Over” in a segment called “Soup or Sonic”. Of course just because the Coyote catches his avian nemesis doesn’t mean he got a meal. Instead the physics gods who rule the Looney Tunes Universe have their way with him.

It is a tragic turn that you should really see for yourself.

Watch Wile E. Coyote catch the Roadrunner

I must admit, I was alway rooting for the Coyote. After so many misadventures and bad attempts, how could you not? Also, there is an arrogance to an uncatchable nemesis that I think we can all relate to. So while I love the Road Runner and Jerry from Tom and Jerry. Sometimes, I just want to see the predictable loser win for a change.

  1. I’d like to see Wile E. catch him and eat him sometime…

  2. The Solid Tin Coyote catches him once, but Wile E gives it the wrong command…

  3. Be funnier if he just touched him and said ‘You’re it!”

  4. He also had that scrawny $#%@^ by the tail feathers once. The feathers broke off and Wile E. found himself facing yet another cliff plunge. He furiously flapped the feathers and managed to stay aloft for a few seconds, but ultimately fell

  5. I would like to see wile E. Catch and eat roadrunner someday.

  6. I know the road runner was caught at least twice. The one mentioned and one time when Wile E. was about ankle high to the road runner.

  7. My favorite Wily moment was in “Zoom & Bored,” where one of the coyote’s contraptions goes awry (as usual) and sends him on a wild goose (not Road Runner) chase, up down and all around, through walls and rocks and pipes and what-not, nowhere near his prey. At the end, he’s on a cliff (as usual), black & blue all over and about ready to cry, and you just know RR is going to meep him right off. Instead, he holds up a sign that says “I don’t have the heart” and gives Mr. Coyote a break and runs off. A rare touching moment in Loony Toons history.

  8. I can swear Wile E caught and ate Roadrunner and after was so sad and depressing that they show a shadow of Wile E hang him self… is this true…? Or did I just dream it..?
