Roadrunner a Go-Go (Jones) MM

Roadrunner a Go-Go is a 1965 Merrie Melodies short directed by Chuck Jones, Maurice Noble, and Tom Ray.


Wile E. Coyote uses slow motion photography to record his failures at catching the Road Runner in hopes of detecting where exactly he went wrong and avoiding the same pitfalls in the future.


  • This is one of the three cartoons cut from the unsold pilot Adventures of the Road-Runner; the others were "To Beep or Not to Beep" and "Zip Zip Hooray!"
  • Milt Franklyn was credited as the musician with the correct spelling of his name.
  • This cartoon and "Zip Zip Hooray!" were the only two Adventures of the Road Runner cut-downs that weren't done by William Lava, due to extremely poor budgets.
  • This short includes the sequence of Adventures of the Road-Runner with Wile E. Coyote speaking to the viewing audience. This cartoon also features a theme song called "Out on the Desert". The original pilot was produced by David H. DePatie with supervising director Chuck Jones.
  • A Tom & Jerry cartoon produced by Chuck Jones (but uncredited) called "Shutter Bugged Cat" is loosely based on this episode, as both feature reused footage from older cartoons with the same result.
  • The toy plane/grenade sequence is reused from "Zip 'n Snort".
  • Recently, MeTV aired a previously unreleased restored print of the cartoon on "Toon in With Me".
