Quote

Wile E. Coyote (also known simply as "The Coyote") is an animated cartoon character, created by Chuck Jones for Warner Bros.'s Looney Tunes series. His debut was in the 1949 Looney Tunes animated cartoon "Fast and Furry-ous" along with Road Runner.

OriginEdit

When the story writers of Warner Bros. decided they needed a new type of short, the thing that they all agreed on was a "cat-and-mouse"-like cartoon, or a cartoon with one animal chasing another. Although many things came to mind, the idea of a coyote chasing a Road Runner eventually came up. This idea eventually sparked what we know of today as one of the greatest shorts that Warner ever created, starring Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner.

DesignEdit

Coyote is a clever fiend, always making a new invention to catch the pesky Road Runner. Although he has made several attempts, he has never succeeded in catching his speedy opponent. But it isn't Road Runner who causes his inventions to fail. Instead, Coyote himself causes his own plans to backfire, mainly because he did not plan the consequences of his actions.

Although Coyote has speed, he cannot match the pace of his rival Road Runner. He seems to be intent on capturing the bird, no matter what it may cost him. And many times it costs him severe injury and never stops trying.

SpeechEdit

Coyote usually does not make a sound, unlike Road Runner, who gives off the occasional "meep, meep." Instead, Coyote communicates with signs that display his emotion, such as "ouch" or "uh-oh." He has been known to talk, however, when he is around Bugs Bunny (in those cases, Coyote was voiced by Mel Blanc). When Wile E. does talk, it's usually with a British accent, often proclaiming to be a "super genius."
