Tim BayerBRIGHTON New York—(Weekly Hubris)—6/3/2013—If you missed my multi-media offering last week, it was titled, Clips of Awesome, a video that showed real people doing astonishing things. This week, we will transition from real people to animated characters.

When I was a child in the 1960s, there were only four channels on television, ABC, CBS, NBC and PBS. For me, the highlight of TV viewing was Saturday morning cartoons. One of my favorites was Warner Brothers’ Wile E. Coyote and The Road Runner.

In an email message sent to me by Kris Abbott, she included a link to the new release of a cartoon featuring my favorite, embattled duo. Warner Brothers has created a 21st-century series of animated short films using CGI technology, and I found a link to a video comprising three of these new animated shorts, one after the other.

Though I no longer have footy pajamas, these videos provided me with a brief, happy flashback to the times when I sat before the family TV on a Saturday morning watching a Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote cartoon for the first time: old was new again.

(If you, yourselves, come across an entertaining link or video, I’d be interested in seeing it, and sharing it with my readers at Weekly Hubris. Please contact me at: Email:

He attended St. Bonaventure University, earning a BS in Computer Science, and then worked in the hi-tech world. In 2002 he turned his creative energies to product development and video production with the release of his first independently produced products. When the demand for web site design and freelance writing increased, he once again switched skill sets . . . to writing and web work. An avid or, to be more accurate, rabid, disc golfer, he may often be found chasing plastic while in pursuit of the perfect round on a disc golf course, or designing and developing disc golf products for He says he tries to find the humor hidden in everyday experiences, because, “life is too important to be taken seriously.” (Author photo by Tim Bayer.
