Bugs. Daffy. Tweety. Sylvester. For many Canadians, the mere mention of these names evoke fond childhood memories of spending Saturday mornings in front of a television, transfixed and spellbound as these characters—and many more—outsmarted each other in situations that could only exist in our imaginations.

The reverse image, provided by Warner Bros., showcases the antagonistic pairing of Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner in a scene from their first Looney Tunes short, Fast and Furry-ous (1949). The use of selective colour brings the engraved Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote to life. Staring at the viewer with an incredulous look on his face, Wile E. Coyote has held out a lid in front of Road Runner in hopes that it will slow the bird. Seen in side-profile, Road Runner smiles knowingly as he stops just short of the lid, seizing quickly that his pursuer might not be as clever as he thinks he is.
