Road Runner a Go-Go is one of 3 cartoons reused from the unsold pilot Adventures of the Road Runner (the others were To Beep or Not to Beep and Zip Zip Hooray!). Milt Franklyn was credited as the musician with the correct spelling of his name. Unlike To Beep or Not to Beep, this cartoon doesn't feature an entirely new soundtrack by Bill Lava, due to budget cuts. The cartoon includes the sequence of Adventures of the Road-Runner with Wile E. Coyote speaking to the viewing audience. The cartoon also features a theme song called Out in the Desert, loosely based on the song Down by the Station. The original pilot was produced by David H. DePatie with supervising director Chuck Jones.

The theatrical release version of the original pilot is available on Looney Tunes Golden Collection Volume 2, Disc 2.
