Acme Corporation

The Acme Corporation is a fictional corporation that exists in several cartoons, films and TV series, most significantly in the Looney Tunes universe, where it appeared most prominently in the Road Runner/Wile E. Coyote cartoons, which made Acme famous for outlandish and downright dangerous products that failed catastrophically at the worst possible times. The inspiration for the name came as something of a parody on the name "Acme", which became a ubiquitous name in the 1950s for businesses in the United States. It was also frequently used as a running gag. (source: wikipidia) [question 3d]

The word acme means highest level, or top of the line, similar to apex. It is also an acronym that stands for "A Company that Makes Everything". [question 3a,d,e]
