Trivia

The Road Runner's only vocabulary, "Beep, Beep!", was inspired by background artist Paul Julian who would make the sound while rushing down the hallways of the animator's offices. For this short, the sound effect was produced by Treg Brown who used an electronic horn called a Klaxon. When the gadget disappeared, Mel Blanc mimicked the sound for the second Road Runner short Beep, Beep (1952). That sound effect became the standard for all Road Runner cartoons thereafter.

Fast and Furry-ous is a nearly excellent first Road Runner cartoon
8 January 2008 | by tavmSee all my reviews

Fast and Furry-ous is Chuck Jones' first cartoon starring the Road Runner and While E. Coyote. It was originally supposed to be a one-shot but there was so much demand that a sequel was made four years later which then became a series. Since this was the first one, I noticed a few differences. One, the backgrounds were more detailed than in subsequent ones. Also, when the bird sticks out his tongue a few times, you don't hear the sound effects that Treg Brown provided on later entries. And only once as the Coyote falls do you then see the ground from a sky-view before some smoke appears. Otherwise, there's the spot gags that are similar to other series entries like the scenery While E. paints over a rock formation that the Road Runner runs right through but the Coyote bumps into hard! And there's some Acme products, of course! Very funny first entry to a classic, if formulaic, series. By the way, Road Runner is described as Accellleratii Incredibus while the Coyote is Carnivorous Vulgaris.
