Wile E. Coyote could never catch the Road Runner, he was just too fast and clearly, had ADHD. If you are a little too young to know what I’m talking about, the Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote are a duo of cartoon characters from a series of Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies cartoons. The were created by animation director Chuck Jones in 1948 for Warner Brothers Studios. In each episode, instead of animal senses and cunning, Wile E. Coyote used absurdly complex contraptions from The ACME Company and elaborate plans to pursue the Road Runner. It could be argued that Wile E. Coyote’s creative and repetitive nature of mistakes were a little ADD too.
Sorry, I digressed. The Road Runner could always be heard with his signature sound “Beep, Beep”, and an occasional tongue noise. Road Runner would race the roads constantly, rarely stopping. He had a lot of energy to burn off and obviously….was a dopamine addict. He raced up hills, mountains and at speeds poor Wile E. Coyote could not keep up with, in any contraption. His need for speed and risk, confidence, self esteem, energetic ways, ability to hyper-focus non tolerance for boredom……come on! Am I the only one who sees this? That coyote is really a crazy clown, when will he learn he can never mow him down? Poor little Road Runner never bothers anyone, just runnin’ down the road’s his idea of having fun.
