Product Information

Animation director Chuck Jones and writer Michael Maltese sifted through many alternatives before arriving at the Road Runner character, who would be chased by Coyote. The prevalence of roadrunners in southern California provided impetus to the creation of a cartoon about the funny little birds called roadrunners. Roadrunners can run about 21 or 22 miles an hour. 'They spread their little stubby wings and shoot up to the top of a big swirl of cactus and vibrate to a stop,' Chuck Jones recounted. 'I always thought they were funny - funny by the way they move, not by what they look like.' Enter the Coyote, who is always hungry, and the chase is on. Wile E. Coyote tries every means he has to trap the Road Runner. Despite Wile E's determined tinkerings, Road Runner always manages to outmaneuver him. Whenever the chase gets close, Road Runner delivers a well-timed 'Beep! Beep!' unfurls his little tongue, steps up the power and shoots away.

Steiff has once again outdone themselves with a classic Looney Tunes licensed character! Made of the finest blue and orange mohair, Road Runner stands 13.5 inches tall. His comical eyes have been embroidered to capture his expression perfectly... he almost looks as if Steiff designers have plucked him right from an old Looney Tunes cartoon! Features the iconic Steiff gold-plated button. Road Runner EAN 355066 is a 2017 Steiff Worldwide white tag edition limited to only 1500 pieces. Although this is a collectors item, it is suitable for ages 14 years and up. LOONEY TUNES and all related characters and elements © & TM Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc. (s17)
