Guidelines adopted by director Chuck Jones in making Warner Bros.’ Road Runner-Wile E. Coyote cartoons, from Jones’ 1999 memoir Chuck Amuck:
The Road Runner cannot harm the Coyote except by going “beep-beep!” 
No outside force can harm the Coyote — only his own ineptitude or the failure of the Acme products. 
The Coyote could stop anytime — if he were not a fanatic. (Repeat: “A fanatic is one who redoubles his effort when he has forgotten his aim.” — George Santayana)
 No dialogue ever, except “beep-beep!” 
The Road Runner must stay on the road — otherwise, logically, he would not be called road runner. 
All action must be confined to the natural environment of the two characters — the southwest American desert. 
All materials, tools, weapons, or mechanical conveniences must be obtained from the Acme Corporation.
