Found in the Autobiography of Chuck Young, the creator of the Road Runner cartoons.
- The Road Runner cannot harm the coyote except by going "Beep Beep!"
- No outside force can harm the Coyote-only his own ineptitude or the failure of the ACME products.
- The Coyote could stop anytime -- IF he were not a fanatic.
A fanatic is one who redoubles his effort when he has forgotten his aim -- George Santayana
- No dialogue ever, except "Beep Beep!"
- The road Runner must stay on the road -- otherwise, logically, he would not be called Road Runner.
- All Action must be confined to the natural environment of the two characters -- the Southwest American desert.
- All material, tools, weapons, or mechanical conveniences must be obtained from the ACME Corporation.
- Whenever possible, make gravity the Coyote's greatest enemy.
The Coyote is always more humiliated than harmed by his failures
