YMMV: Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner
  • Badass Adorable: Inverted with Wile E. who is neither as threatening nor as cute as real-life coyotes.
    • Ugly Cute: Yet despite (or maybe because of) this, it's hard not to feel sympathy for the poor guy.
  • Death of the Author: While Chuck Jones "Rules" of how the series was written is somewhat well known, his contemporary Friz Freleng considered his account of the series rules apocryphal, saying he made up the rules long after the original shorts were finished. Considering how often some of the "rules" were broken in the original shorts, there may be some grain of truth in that.
  • Fanon Discontinuity: Rudy Larriva's eleven Road Runner shorts (and, arguably, Robert McKimson's two efforts along with the Sylvester/Speedy crossover directed by Friz Freleng) tend to be considered part of WB's Dork Age.
  • Iron Woobie: The Coyote.
  • Rooting for the Empire: An odd intentional example.
