* UsefulNotes/TheDarkAgeOfAnimation

to:

* UsefulNotes/TheDarkAgeOfAnimationUsefulNotes/TheDarkAgeOfAnimation: A lot of shorts were produced in this era and the quality of the animation decreased in the 60's along with a heavily recycled musical sting throughout several shorts.



* UsefulNotes/TheRenaissanceAgeOfAnimation

to:

* UsefulNotes/TheRenaissanceAgeOfAnimationUsefulNotes/TheRenaissanceAgeOfAnimation: Many of the shorts were produced in this era with a lot of well-painted cartoon desert and mesa backdrops.



** Most of the Road Runner shorts made by parody comedians have the Coyote finally catching the Road Runner. A Creator/SethMacFarlane short called "Die Sweet Roadrunner, Die", [[spoiler: has the coyote finally catching and eating the bird. But with his purpose in life lost he gets horribly bored and depressed and attempts suicide (hysterically enough, he does so with an ACME product). Then he does find a purpose in life and becomes a Born-Again Christian.]]

* RevengeBeforeReason: After a certain point, it becomes clear that Wile E. is really motivated more by this trope than by his ostensible motivations of desire for food. Many of his traps would kill the Road Runner in ways that would render the corpse totally inedible, but Wile E. has come to care more about seeing the Road Runner dead than feeding himself or not getting maimed.

** Then again, [[FourLegsGoodTwoLegsBetter he always chooses to run upright]] rather than on all fours, which leads to increased wind resistance - of course, this could be due to him being more vertically-centered than horizontally, ''like an actual coyote''.

* SeesawCatapult: Happens several times, with the teeter-totter being made of stone. The Coyote would either use the teeter-totter rock as part of his scheme or end up falling on it as a result of a scheme. He would be flung into the air when a large rock fell on the other end of the teeter-totter rock.

* EveryoneHasStandards: But of course! In one cartoon, Wile E. takes a ''massive'' tumble, falling down ''several'' cliffs, sucked through pipes, over waterfalls, and is hit by a truck, before finally coming to a stop at the top of a cliff, breathing hard and clutching his chest. The coyote is ''crying'' by this point. The Road Runner runs up behind him and has a chance to [[KickTheDog scare him off the cliff]] like he usually does, but [[DudeNotFunny At this point]] he's apparently as sympathetic as the viewers, seeing holds a sign up that says [[PetTheDog "I just don't have the heart"]], and runs off again.

* BornLucky: NOTHING goes wrong for Road Runner. Sometimes the laws of psychics are bent by him, such as ''going right through a brick wall with a fake road painted on it without getting hurt.''

to:

* BornInTheTheatre: At the end of one short, Wile E. pulled a standing sign onto the set. "Wanted: One gullible coyote. Apply to manager of this theatre."
