Can you fill in the right pun for these Wile E. Coyote cartoon titles?

These titles spoof common phrases, songs and even a famous movie cowboy!

Looney Tunes cartoons are famous for their pun-y names. Bugs Bunny never met a phrase he couldn’t insert the words “hare” or “rabbit” into and Daffy had “duck” or “quack” in many of his titles.

Likewise, Wile E. Coyote and Roadrunner had many shorts labeled with funny phrases and puns. Here are ten of their cartoons. Try to guess the missing word to complete each title!

Question # 2 is from the Road Runner cartoon "Hook, Line and Stinker", it was on MeTV today,
Oct. 16. For some reason the sound track had nothing to do with the usual sounds, music
cues etc. we normally hear in a Warner Brothers cartoon.
In fact the "music" was a total misfit, it severely detracted from one's enjoyment. All of it, the
cues, music, theme, came direct from the Dennis the Menace sitcom, I half expected Mr. Wilson
to yell at Wile E. Coyote to keep the noise down. It was awful.
Was there a strike by the musicians union, etc. and Warners decided on the El Cheapo option
to use the Dennis material? Did Warners own the Dennis sitcom?
This is like using the Star Trek music for Columbo.
Actually, some of the Trek music/cues was recycled for 12 O'Clock High, a now little
remembered show that was outstanding.
Thanks! I just saw that toon yesterday and I agree with you on the music wholeheartedly, I just couldn’t place where I’d heard it before!!
Hi Toonhead,
You are welcome and I am glad you agree how badly this cartoon was treated. I am sure the
writers/director weren't happy when they saw what Warners did to the audio.
I think I'll ask the MeTV crew, maybe they will do one of their "Stories" on it. Or not,
you never know.
Good Idea, I love it when Bill gives us some inside dope about toons, such as The additional voices in some of the toons. I would love to here the story about Elmer’s original voice artist for example. What d’ya think? Always a pleasure to hear from you pal. 😎
Hi Toon,
Somewhere on these boards they did explain about the original voice of Elmer Fudd, I
have no idea where. Maybe one of our fellow posters will remember and tell us
the story.

Hi Mike ! My memory is working a little bit better today. I believe that the gentleman’s name was Arthur Q. Bryant. I remember the time that I first saw him, I believe it was a Fibber Mc Gee & Molly film. I wasn’t paying attention until I heard a somewhat familiar voice. When I looked up, as I recall, it was like looking at Elmer Fudd brought to life! I’m pretty sure that they used Mr. Bryant as a loose template for the original Elmer character. The characteristic speech quirks were there but muted. I was totally gobsmacked! Lol It was shortly thereafter that I learned that he was E.F.’s original voice, that is if I’m not disrembering, that is. Maybe some of our friends out there can fill in the blanks. My memory sometimes is more like a steel sieve than a steel trap these days lol. Thanks y’all 😎

6/10. The coyote got a better chance of catching the road runner, than me catching a break!
Toonhead saswifteagle 1 month ago
I have a question. Consider the vast amount of money the coyote spent with Acme, why didn’t he just order the frozen roadrunner TV dinner?

Good question. Maybe he didn't have a microwave.

🤣 👏😝😂😎. You have a point, for sure! Although I would think that any company that offers jet powered roller skates and a do-it-yourself-rocket-sled-kit just might possibly have a microwave somewhere in the catalog! Lmao, sir!
