Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote (The Looney Tunes Show)

Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote CGI shorts are CGI shorts that are shown at the end of some episodes, exclusively in season one, featuring Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote from The Looney Tunes Show.

According to the show's debuting press release, it states This series also includes all-new adventures with the Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote in stunning CG. The animators chose to make the Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote shorts CGI, according to this article.

" CGI works really well for them because we can create one environment, this desert environment, and basically just shoot different cartoons in it. They're silent characters so we don't have to worry about lip sync. Also, by their nature, they're all about speed and height, so we could do a lot of cool stuff with the camera."

However, these CGI shorts didn't debut in the show first. Instead, it debuted in movies. Three shorts debuted in movie theaters, including Coyote Falls, which premiered on July 30, 2010, for the movie Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore, Fur of Flying, which premiered on September 24, 2010, for the movie Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole and Rabid Rider, which premiered on December 17, 2010, for the movie Yogi Bear. These shorts debuted in movie theaters and were also seen on DVDs. Unlike the Merrie Melodies, they have yet to be on iTunes for download.

The largest gap between CGI shorts occurred between Members Only's Bubble Trouble and Monster Talent's A Zipline in the Sand. The first episodes with back-to-back CGI shorts were in Monster Talent's A Zipline in the Sand and Reunion's Fe Fi Fo Dumb. The first episode that had a CGI short, but not a Merrie Melody was in Monster Talent. The longest streak with CGI shorts occurred from Monster Talent to Working Duck, a span of sixteen episodes.

The CGI shorts appear in less episodes than Merrie Melodies. The Road Runner & Wile E. Coyote CGI Shorts discontinued after the first season. Instead, Wile E. Coyote & Road Runner appear ocassionally in the series.
