Trivia

There was a gap of nearly three years between this and the second Road Runner cartoon, Beep, Beep (1952). Chuck Jones only intended it to be a one-shot cartoon, but the reception given by the public made him change his mind. He was especially persuaded by a letter from a captain in the Naval Air Force, who claimed that pilots were imitating the Road Runner's "beep beep" call while doing maneuvers. See more »

The very first
21 April 2004 | by rbverhoefSee all my reviews

'Fast and Furry-ous' is the cartoon that started the chases between Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote. The cartoons with those two characters belong to my favorites. From the opening where Road Runner is introduced with his kind of Latin name Accelerati Incredibulis and Coyote with his kind of Latin name Carnivarious Vulgaris the shorts are always funny.

Funny I say, but also very predictable. With this first cartoon that is a fact as well. May it is the charm of a cartoon like this. You expect something, exactly that will happen, and still it is funny. There is one surprise in this one and that is the ending. I laughed numerous times. If it was really the first one I saw I would have laughed even more. This is a great cartoon.
