    Road Runner for Dodge Pan Background (Warner Brothers, 1969). Beep! Beep! Pthubm, pthubm! If you are a Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote fan, (and how can you not be?) then this is something very special! It is a hand-painted pan production background from the 1969 Dodge Road Runner animated TV commercial that featured Beep-Beep and Wile E. Coyote. The commercial mentions that the Dodge Road Runner was Motor Trends Car Of The Year. The pan background is seen at the beginning of the commercial when Wile E. starts his powered backpack. The animated TV commercial was directed by Robert McKimson and can be seen on YouTube. This hand-painted background is a 38" x 10.5" pan. There is minor handling, three slight creases, a small paperclip rust stain, a corner fold on the lower left, and a small 1" tear in the upper left. Marked "BG 8" in the lower right margin, this is one of the rarest Road Runner backgrounds we have ever seen. With the commercial lasting only 60 seconds, and being 46 years old already, this is quite a find! In Very Good condition.
