ACME Action

Wile E. on the Road

Dear Grandpa,
I hope you are fine. Thanks so much for the cool coyote roadrunner toy. The bird with its electric motor moves really fast, and the soft prairie wolf seems indestructible. In the kit were some wooden boxes from ACME with gadgets that always seem to backfire, like a spring-loaded boxing glove.

I put the Canis latrans on a table edge with a boulder or as a coyote cannon ball, or I equip the bird with a fake tunnel. Usually Wile E. ends up in the special dust box below.

The best part is the ACME subscription service. The first week I received jet-propelled roller skates, last week a coyote-sized slingshot, and today I’m awaiting delivery of a box with iron birdseed and a large magnet.

Come over and play soon. You’ll probably have fun since Dad uses it a lot.
Love, Johnny

P.S. I think Mom’s kidding about the roadrunner swearing. The “Beep Beep” isn’t censorship.

       The only thing that ACME didn't make, that I think they should is the "ACME cliff" for Wile E. to fall from.
