[info_box] In 1980, Coyote finally caught road-runner[/info_box]
The long and painful journey of the Wile E. Coyote I’m sure was a part of many of our childhoods yet I’m sure most of you didn’t know how it finally ended. In a special episode called “Soup or Sonic“, the ending was revealed. Here’s the plot line from Wikipedia.
[note_box]The whole cartoon, however, is best known for its ending gag. Wile E. Coyote is chasing the Road Runner through a series of pipelines, which causes both of them to emerge in a greatly shrunken state. Upon discovering their situation, they agree to re-enter the pipeline and be transformed back into full size. The Road Runner emerges at normal size, but Wile is still in small size when he comes out. Upon discovering this turn of fortune, the Road Runner stops and allows his rival to “catch” him. The coyote doesn’t notice anything until he steps over his opponent’s feet and rushes back to finally“catch” the Road Runner.(He just hugs Road Runner’s ankle.) The coyote is ecstatic and pulls out his knife and fork to eat his opponent…until he stares more closely at the bird’s huge legs, which are twice as tall as he is, and looks up to see he is massively outgunned. The Road Runner gives his antagonist an amplified “beep-beep”, causing Wile to drop his utensils in shock. He can only hold up signs to the audience stating, “OK, wise guys – you always wanted me to catch him -” “Now what do I do?”[/note_box]
Finally he posted a signboard up saying “Okay, wise guys, you always wanted me to catch him. Now what do I do?”. Personally I’d like to think it was all just an Inception with Coyote coming to terms with his inner self for the guilt within of catching road-runner. Epic I know. So Christopher Nolan, you better start filming that one now. And I want at least 1% of the revenue, that should be enough for an early retirement.
What are your suggestions? What should Coyote have done back in 1980?
