Portrayed by:

The Beeps are a family of roadrunners who live in the Southern Desert. The father is named Beep Beep and the mother is named Matilda Beep. Together, they have three sons which are never named. The father and the kids (and every once in a while the mother) are often chased and pursued by the hungry Coyote, named Wile E. Coyote. However, the Road Runners always outsmart the Coyote. The roadrunners are almost always seen running together.

Beep Beep and his family have appeared in the Looney Tunes comic books published by Western Publishing and related media, such as books. Outside of the father, none of the roadrunners have been animated, and they have yet to appear in DC Comics' Looney Tunes comics.


While Beep Beep first appeared in the 1949 Chuck Jones Short "Fast and Furry-ous", his family didn't appear until Beep Beep's first Comic Book Appearance, where he would for the first time ever, speak, and give his full name, Beep Beep.


In this story, the Coyote at one point steals eggs to eat. It is later revealed that these Eggs belong to Beep Beep and his Wife. Beep promises to get the eggs back. He was able to save his kids as they hatched, walking around still in their shells. At the end of the story, the whole family is seen running together (much to the Coyote's anger) with the kids outside of their eggshells.

Later Appearances

After their debut, the family became mainstays of the Road Runner's very own comic "Beep Beep The Road Runner!". At the beginning of the series, the mother was one of the main characters, but soon she was phased out.

As the series continued the baby Road Runners grew. Near the end of the series, the three babies were as big as their father.
