Albuquerque, NM
Roadrunner [gone]
Columbus, OH
The Roadrunner in Albuquerque stood in front of Ex-El Co., a spray foam roofing specialist. It appears that this Roadrunner is made of this spray foam material. This statue was evidently inspired by Looney Tunes' Road Runner cartoons. These photos are from 2006 and 2012. By 2014, the business had closed but the statue was still there. [map]

This Roadrunner statue in Columbus was another representation of the Looney Tunes' cartoon character. It was part of a modern advertising campaign for Time Warner Cable's Road Runner High Speed Online service. It was there in 2009 but gone by 2010. [photo thanks Mark Comstock]
