Zip Zip Hooray! is a 1965 Looney Tunes short directed by Chuck Jones, Maurice Noble, and Tom Ray.


Ralph Phillips and his friend are watching Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner on television. The coyote suspends his chase to explain why he wants to catch the speedy bird.



  • MPAA Number: 21003
  • Except for the opening credits, this entire short was made using nothing but footage from the 1962 pilot Adventures of the Road-Runner, with the opening theme "Out in the Desert" and Wile E. Coyote speaking to the audience about why he so badly wishes to catch Road Runner.
  • Milt Franklyn was credited as the musician with the correct spelling of his name. Unlike "To Beep or Not to Beep", this cartoon doesn't feature an entirely new soundtrack by Bill Lava due to budget cuts.
  • The original pilot was produced by David H. DePatie with supervising director Chuck Jones.
  • Scenes from this cartoon would be reused in the Thanksgiving TV special, Bugs Bunny's Thanksgiving Diet.
