Fur of Flying is a 2010 Looney Tunes film starring characters Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner. It was directed by Matthew O'Callaghan, written by Tom Sheppard, produced by Reel FX Creative Studios[1] and theatrically released by Warner Bros. with the film Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole.


Using a makeshift helicopter-helmet, Wile E. Coyote intends to catch Road Runner, whilst avoiding heat-seeking missiles. The start shows boxes bearing labels of various products. Coyote uses the boxed items to create a wooden helicopter-helmet that he employs to chase the Road Runner. He encounters various environmental obstacles during the chase, including a cactus and rocky protrusions in a narrow canyon. Coyote and the Road Runner enter a restricted area, and 2 missiles are launched to chase them. The red one chases the Road Runner as the blue one stays after Coyote. Coyote ends up on a very high rock with the missile suspending on a branch just above him. Coyote's helmet accidentally activates, carrying him up to the missile, triggering its detonation. The rock breaks, sending Coyote into the path of the missile chasing the Road Runner. The helicopter-helmet comes loose, dooming Coyote to be hit by the remaining missile. He holds up a burnt yellow "That's All Folks!" sign before passing out.


Fur of Flying was released theatrically with Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole.[2] The short was also released on the Legend of the Guardians DVD and Blu-ray.[3]

The short was included on the Looney Tunes Super Stars' Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote: Supergenius Hijinks DVD. It was also included as a bonus on the DVD release of Looney Tunes: Rabbits Run.[4]
