Wile E Coyote, Super Genius and Truly Heroic Cartoon Character

Updated on July 20, 2014

Poor Wile E. Coyote. The most misunderstood cartoon character of all time.

Ever since I was a young boy, I wanted this heroic cartoon character to get what he wanted.

How hard he tried, getting up to fight the good fight day after day no matter how many evil tricks his evil nemesis the Roadrunner pulled on him.

Wile E Coyote is one of the sad stories of the cartoon world. Not matter how hard he tried or how clever his plans they always failed. He is the ultimate underdog. More of an underdog, in fact, than Underdog; who ironically enough, always succeeded.

Why Wile E Coyote was the Hero.

Wile E. Coyote was the protagonist of the stories. He was constantly striving and failing. He was making up brilliant plans. He was industrious and hard working.

One thing that rascally Roadrunner had going for him was a good PR team. His, "Beep Beep's" were well targeted to his audience and this gave him a huge fan-base, even though his evil actions in foiling the coyotes plan almost always led to the coyote falling to his death or being blown up.

In fact, the Roadrunner is a multiple time mass murderer. Worse than John Wayne Gacy or Ted Bundy, The Roadrunner had to have killed Wile E Coyote at least 2,000 times. That is a lot of blood on his murderous feathers.

What the Roadrunner's PR firm, The Warner Brothers, was able to keep quite is just why the coyote was hunting accelerati incredibilus (roadrunner). You see, the desert where they lived had been going under severe drought conditions. Nothing could grow and their was no work to be found.

Wile E. Coyote had a wife, he had 12 kids. He had to do something to put food in their mouths.

Unfortunately thanks to that demon roadrunner, they all died.

The Positive Character traits of Wile E. Coyote

What did the roadrunner have going for him anyway. He was clever, smart and fast. Yup, that is all we know about him.

How about Wile E. Coyote? His depth of character was shown just about every episode.

Industrious. Hard-working: He worked very hard on his creations. Sometimes for days and nights without respite

Inventive. Creative. Clever: From bombs to rockets to jetpacks. With the help of ACME, Wile made hundreds of creations. If he had patented these creations he would have put Steve Jobs and Bill Gates out of business.

Active. Energetic: A coyote does not have a roadrunner natural born speed. But Wile always tried. He moved, he ran, he did his best to catch his quarry and feed his family.

Charismatic. Charming: Come on, Wile E. Coyote was a good looking fella!

Determined: Most people would give up chasing the road runner after the 3rd time they got blown to pieces. Not Wile. This coyote did not know the meaning of the word quit. Three strikes was not enough for him. He took about 2000 strikes and kept trying. That is grit and determination that HAS to be admired.

Eager. Effervescent: No matter how many times he failed, he was always back with a smile and a new plan to catch his quarry. He never let failure get him down, but always stayed upbeat.

Intelligent: Just because his creations sometimes went awry, never doubt the intelligence of the coyote. DO you know how to make a rocket jetpack from scratch? OR rig dynamite? I surely don't. But the coyote does!

Lovable. Now most people would give this one to the Roadrunner. I hope after reading all of this, you may rethink your opinions and come to my side in beliveing that Wile Ethelbert Coyote was truly the lovable one in the avian propaganda films put out by the Warner Brothers public relations firm.

      My mom didn't like us to watch this as a kid, because it wasn't "realistic." I guess she was afraid we might try some of those tricks on each other :) I do like his never quit attitude though. It is a classic for sure.
