The Road Runner cartoons show how ‘there is nothing impossible in life’, a sentiment that has become a common refrain in popular culture.
But the cartoon series has also taken on a life of its own, becoming a cultural touchstone and a vehicle for social commentary and political commentary.
It has been compared to the Black Panthers, the Occupy movement and the Occupy Wall Street movement, among others.
Today, the Road Runner character has been adopted by many across the world as a symbol of a utopian future.
And, thanks to the Internet, it has also become an enduring cultural touchpoint.
