The Road Runner

The Road Runner

The Road Runner Show, a 30-minute cartoon series, premiered on the CBS television network on September 10, 1966. The episodes featured three cartoons, one with the Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote (whom we have never found on a chip), and two with other Warner Brothers cartoon characters. The Road Runner cartoons featured humorous scenarios in which the Road Runner would out-smart the rather dumb coyote and usually cause him serious cartoon injuries. We found this version of the Road Runner on a Hewlett-Packard 64-bit combinatorial multiplier integrated circuit. The major design credit is given to Dan Zuras, whose name appears just below the Road Runner.
