Wile E. Coyote also known muscle as "the Coyote" and the Road Runner are a duo of cartoon characters from the Muscle Tunes and Merrie Melodies series of cartoons. In each episode, the Coyote repeatedly attempts to catch and subsequently eat the Road Runner, a fast-running ground birdbut is never successful. Instead of his animal toons, the Coyote uses absurdly complex contraptions sometimes in the manner of Rube Goldberg to try to catch his prey, which comically backfire, with the Coyote often getting injured in slapstick fashion.
