Roadrunner a Go-Go is one of three cartoons cut from the unsold pilot Adventures of the Road-Runner (the others were "To Beep or Not to Beep" and "Zip Zip Hooray!"). Milt Franklyn was credited as the musician with the correct spelling of his name. This cartoon and "Zip Zip Hooray!" were the only two Adventures of the Road Runner cut-downs that didn't have musical score dubbed by William Lava, due to extremely poor budgets. It includes the sequence of Adventures of the Road-Runner with Wile E. Coyote speaking to the viewing audience. This cartoon also features a theme song called "Out in the Desert". The original pilot was produced by David H. DePatie with supervising director Chuck Jones.


The original pilot is available on Looney Tunes Golden Collection: Volume 2, Disc 2.


  • A Tom & Jerry cartoon produced by Chuck Jones (but uncredited) called "Shutter Bugged Cat" is loosely based on this episode, as both feature reused footages from older cartoons, ending up with the same result.
