There's something here for everyone. An extruder that doubles as a pasta maker for Grandma. A roof-mounted catapult for Dad. And what about a little jet-powered pogo stick for yourself? Each item is matched with a thorough product description, the price, and the shipping cost. As always, the ACME Company brings corporate identity sans responsabilit to everything sold with its label. Please note that the ACME Company has no retail outlets or web site. In other words, this catalog is the only way for consumers to access this highly sought-after ACME line.

Coyote has attempted to thwart Roadrunner with the aid of priceless products from the Acme Company: iron birdseed, fake holes, giant anvils, roof-mounted catapults, and of course, the classic Launch Box. The Acme Catalog, compiled by a longtime Warner Bros. writer, showcases scores of these useless items from the studio's Looney Tunes storeroom.
