Wile E. Coyote, Physical Science Genius
I always liked Wile E. Coyote, but I was not a big fan of his cartoons because he was always getting smushed or blown up by the Roadrunner. Now, Wile E. is starring in his own series of science books. In these, you learn the scientific principles of all of Wile E.'s different contraptions and experiments that he uses when he tries to catch the Roadrunner.
and speaking of Looney Toons, I also always felt bad for Sylvester the cat when he was tricked by Tweety.
