I see both Wile. E Coyote and the Trix Rabbit as sympathetic characters. You almost feel sorry for Wile E., even though he is trying to eat the Road Runner. He goes through a lot of pain and misery. The Trix Rabbit never gets that cereal. However, between the two, I would have to say the Trix Rabbit. I mean those kids are just downright cruel. Just give the Rabbit some cereal, you greedy little punks. At least, with Wile E., you could say that a lot of his misfortunes are brought upon himself and his obsession. With all of the money he spent trying to capture the Road Runner, maybe the guy should have bought some food. So who do you feel sorrier for? Wile E. Coyote or the Trix Rabbit? Looking forward to your responses.

I would have to agree that the Trix rabbit deserves a bowl of cereal more than Wile X Coyote deserves to kill and devour the roadrunner. Although I think both are great examples of the human condition. We always want what we cannot have. Trix to a rabbit probably isn't that great. And you have to know that the roadrunner would be gamey and tough. That's the thing about the grass being greener on the other side. It never actually is.

I just wonder if their hunger for the product has involved into an obsession that has lost the original meaning. I see this with Wile E. Coyote especially. It is not as much to him as eating the Road Runner. It is just to prove that he can catch him. Its about rehabilitating his lost pride after many, many, failures. With each passing try, he gets more obsessed, to the point where catching this particular animal is something that he feels he has to do. At least that's the way I saw things. Thank you for your response, it is much appreciated.

I feel more sorry for wile e coyote more than the trix rabbit. The reason why I feel sorry for wile e coyote is because well he is just trying to get a meal but then he goes through alot of freakin pain just for a meal. They make it out that wile e coyote is a bad guy in a way when he isnt hes just doing what nature wants him to do. The trix rabbit is just well...I am not sure how to put it I might as well just forget it.

Wile E. sure does suffer a lot for just one animal. I could only begin to rattle off the bad things that have happened to him. Not to mention, I think he's being swindled by a company that obviously sells faulty products. Such a tragic cartoon story when you really think about it. I find it funny that so many cartoon characters that are portrayed as villains are actually really sympathetic. Tom from Tom and Jerry is another one like this. Thank you for your response, it is much appreciated.

I think Wile E Coyote has is worse off. He always gets hurt; TNT blows up in his face, anvils fall on his head, etc. The Trix rabbit just doesn't get his cereal; he can just go off and have some Lucky Charms or something instead, lol.

Yeah, Wile E. Coyote takes so much abuse it can be nearly disturbing. Some of it is brought onto by his obsession sure. Its those faulty Acme products. It has to be. Thank you for your response, its much appreciated.

Hmm...I'd have to go with the Trix Rabbit too. Just thinking about it reminds me of the various Trix commercials and the "Silly rabbit, Trix are for kids." tag line. You gotta dislike those kids sometimes. I mean, there's plenty of cereal in the box so why not give that poor rabbit a bowl. What happened to teaching kids how to share? As for Wile. E Coyote, you have to admit that most of his schemes are foiled by himself. He sets up traps and whatever and falls into themselves. Reminds me of Tom from Tom & Jerry with his obsession.

Yeah I know. Those kids can be downright cruel. As I got older, they seemed more cruel. Just a rather poor example but even when I was younger, my sympathy always lied with the rabbit most of the time. Thank you for your response. It is much appreciated.

Lol yeah kids are cruel. Definately feel more sorry for Trix Rabbit. But. . .what would be the effect if they did give Trix cereal? He's still technically a rabbit so would kids give their pet rabbits cereal? Who knows? I'd like to think kids are smart enough not to feed their real rabbits/bunnies sugary cereals but. . .yeah. Wile E. Coyote could've bought some food instead of wasting time and money buying defective products from Acme to catch one prey. I mean seriously? I thought Wile was supposed to be an intellectual haha.

HI! i am more sorry for the poor coyote, because he always got pound by something and he always fail to catch his food! I even wonder how can he survive if he doesn't eat!

That is one of life's greatest mysteries. How does the Coyote eat? I'm beginning to think he might. It's just that chasing the Road Runner is a hobby. Of course, if he catches him, I think all bets are off. At least that is a potential theory that I have heard. Thank you for your response, it is much appreciated.

Definitely Wile E. Coyote, the guy is just trying to eat his natural prey. Though I also think the Road Runner deserves to be captured and eaten so it may have something to do with it. Wile E. Coyote is this smart animal and he gets jipped by the Acme Corporation with shoddy products and by the Road Runner who can defy physics and change gravity. The Trix Rabbit just needs to man up and take the cereal from the kids. He has a good two to three feet on them he can take em. And they always taunt him. So until he actually tries to take what he wants in a more direct route like Wile E. Coyote, the Trix Rabbit won't get as much sympathy from me.

Yeah Wile E. gets a raw deal from Acme. I can just only imagine how much they made for him. I think his obsession with the Road Runner has kept them at a profit throughout their existence. :) Yeah, I can see why you would think the Trix Rabbit just needs to step up. Thank you for your response, it is much appreciated.

I truly would feel sorry for the coyote. He tries everything he can to get the road runner. All his plans and schemes go up in smoke. He just can't seem to win. You have to show compassion for his determination.

I definately feel sorry for the coyote.I think he should give up using those ACME explosives.He always gets hurt pretty bad.I noticed everything that coyote orders to catch that road runner is from ACME.He always blows himself up.He always falls off a cliff.
