    Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner Sketch Original Art by Chuck Jones (Warner Brothers, c. 1980s-90s). "Beep?" Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner were created by Chuck Jones and writer Mike Maltese, in 1948. Their first appearances were in the 1949 theatrical short Fast and Furry-ous. Mr. Jones would go on to direct twenty-five classic cartoons with these popular characters. Each one had Wile E. using various "Acme" brand products to try to catch the Road Runner. This is an original one-of-a-kind Chuck Jones drawing of Wile E. Coyote with an Acme Dynamite Plunger. He thinks he is blowing up the Road Runner, not knowing his elusive prey is behind him on a mountain ledge, watching! From the hand of a true animation legend, the great Chuck Jones, drawn in graphite on paper. Fun images, with sizes of 2" and 7". The drawing is hand-signed by Chuck Jones and has a Linda Jones COA on back of the frame. Matted with an opening of 12" x 9", and framed with Plexiglas for an overall size of 20" x 17". Classic Wile E. and Road Runner drawings of this caliber by Chuck Jones are very rare. Frame is sold as-is, drawing has minor handling wear. Very Good condition.
