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.
