Mel Blanc, the man of 1000 voices, was the voice for Road Runner and many other Looney Tunes characters including Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, Speedy Gonzalas, Yosemite Sam, Barney Rubble, Wile E. Coyote. Mel and his Road Runner voice died in 1989. Blanc’s first major memorable role was that of Porky Pig, which he was offered in 1937 after studio officials decided that the porcine personality, who was originally introduced in 1935, needed a face-lift. In 1960, Blanc turned to made-for-TV cartoons, providing voices for a Saturday morning Bugs Bunny show and for two of the characters on “The Flintstones” — Barney Rubble and the pet dinosaur, Dino.

Animation director Chuck Jones created the Road Runner, an extremely speedy bird that literally runs on roads in the U.S. southwestern desert, in 1948. Together with writers Tedd Pierce and Michael Maltese, Jones paired the road-running fowl with a hungry coyote, later given the name of Wile E., who has an overweening belief in his own ingenuity and in scientific methods and instruments of ACME Corporation design for use in his constant pursuit of the elusive, fast bird.
