Introduction

The Road Runner is a cartoon character that's been around for a long time; he and his eternal nemesis, Wile E. Coyote, have been around since 1949! Together, they've starred in a myriad of animated shorts and films, starting with their first cartoon "Fast and Furry-ous." The Road Runner Show was something of a greatest hits collection of the Road Runner and the Coyote's most memorable outings; the show functioned like an anthology series, featuring cartoons from entirely different historical eras. The Road Runner Show initially aired from 1966 to 1968 on CBS. A few years later, ABC picked the anthology series back up and let it run from 1971 to 1973.

The Road Runner Show Inspired Dog Name Considerations

The Road Runner Show hearkens back to ye olden days of Looney Tunes lore; being an anthology series, the show jumped all around history and would often air episodes from different decades back to back. There were also plenty of new cartoons that were featured on The Road Runner Show - many of which have gone on to become classics in their own right. If you were a child during the mid-1960s then chances are that you watched The Road Runner Show from time to time. As such, there's a strong chance that Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner have likely become two of your favorite TV characters. Even without wearing any rose-tinted goggles, the prevalence of these two characters can't be understated.

Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner alone are two of the most recognizable cartoon characters in history. Many of the gags that were created during their show have been parodied and referenced hundreds, if not thousands, of times by other shows. The term ACME - a word that refers to the fictional company that supplies the Coyote with all of his tools - is synonymous with Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner. If you're a big fan of these characters and you're dog's in need of a name, we don't see any reason not to make some magic happen.
