The Bugs Bunny/Looney Tunes Comedy Hour - DVD for 'Road Runner & Wile E. Coyote: Supergenius Hijinks' ***UPDATE: Great News About The Aspect Ratio***


This new 'Looney Tunes Super Stars' release contains 15 animated shorts

    15 shorts of one of the Looney Tunes franchise's most popular characters, Roadrunner and Wile E. Coyote! Created by legendary animator Chuck Jones, the series had a simple premise: The coyote, who was very hungry, tried to catch the Road Runner, who was very fast. Wile E. would try anything to catch his prey, utilizing a wide variety of products from the Acme Company (rocket skates, giant magnets, foot springs, etc.).

    Regardless of the scheme, it would always backfire, and Wile E. would end up trapping, flattening, or blowing himself up. The coyote was persistent, though. No matter how many failures he met with, no matter how many times he fell off a cliff, no matter how many signs he held up with the word "Ouch!" written on them, he refused to give up. Signs were the only way Wile E. communicated in his shorts with the Road Runner, and the bird only spoke the two-word catchphrase, "Beep Beep!"
Warner Home Video has today announced that a title with new-to-DVD content will be released on May 24th when they put out Looney Tunes Super Stars' Road Runner & Wile E. Coyote: Supergenius Hijinks. The disc will cost $19.98 SRP, and contains 15 animated shorts. Below is a copy-and-paste with Warner's information listing those shorts (this is an exact quote, and we're assuming the studio info is correct as shown). Underneath that you'll find the package art!
  1. NEW 2010 ROADRUNNER #1 (Judge Granny Case)
  2. NEW 2010 ROADRUNNER #2 (Wild King Dumb)
  3. NEW 2010 ROADRUNNER #3 (Wile E. Coyote Ugly)
  4. WHIZZARD OF OW
  5. CHARIOTS OF FUR
  6. LITTLE GO BEEP
  7. FREEZE FRAME
  8. SOUP OR SONIC
  9. SUGAR AND SPIES
  10. CLIPPERTY CLOBBERED
  11. THE SOLID TIN COYOTE
  12. OUT AND OUT ROUT
  13. SHOT AND BOTHERED
  14. CHASER ON THE ROCKS
  15. HIGHWAY RUNNERY


UPDATE: On previous releases in the "Looney Tunes Super Stars" DVD lineup, the original "full frame" aspect ratio of the included shorts was modified to widescreen, in order to better fit the modern-day standard television screen. Fans were highly upset about this modification to these classic cartoons, and let Warner know about it in no uncertain terms. We've just received word from the studio that the upcoming release of "Road Runner & Wile E. Coyote: Supergenius Hijinks" will actually includes both full frame and widescreen versions of each short. Sweet!
