    Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote Production Cel Setup (Warner Brothers, 1971). "Test Drive the New Road Runner" "Best Built Ever" "Coming Through" "...Hurry!" are captions on signs Wile E. has posted to trick the Road Runner into thinking a wooden fake Dodge Road Runner is a real car. Legendary Warner Brothers animation director Robert McKimson (1910 - 1977) worked on this and other commercials for the Dodge Road Runner. This is a setup of two 12 field hand-painted production cels of Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote from a 1971 Road Runner car commercial that can be seen around the 0:16 mark. This great spot is currently shown on YouTube. Both of these full-figure images stand 4" and are over a print background for presentation purposes. The piece shows minor handling; otherwise, condition is Very Good.
