Among the strategies that fail in Wile E. Coyote's attempts to catch the Roadrunner: glue on the road, a giant rubber band, an outboard motor in a wash tub, and dressing in drag as a female Roadrunner.
While cooking a tin can, the Coyote spots a better meal rushing by- the Road Runner. But making himself into a giant arrow doesn't catch the bird, and the book, "How to Tar and Feather a Road Runner", isn't much help either.

In his attempt to catch the Road Runner, Wile E. Coyote tries the old cartoon trick of putting up a painting of a continuing road where a bridge has in fact gone out. It doesn't work, nor does dressing in drag or dropping an anvil from a balloon. Written by

When viewed in slow motion, during the scene where the Road Runner whizzes through the cement and it splashes onto Wile E. Coyote, the cement begins to part and splash *a second before* the Road Runner slices through it. See more »
It's amazing the number of ploys that Wile E. Coyote tries - and has backfire - in just a s six- and-a-half half minute cartoon. The beating the poor guy takes each time is unbelievable, but have you seen a more determined character in a cartoon? One that doesn't let defeat discourage him? I'd like to see him win, just one time.
In this cartoon, he gets blasted by not just one, but two big trucks, along with an assortment of other things including the ever-present anvil.
For some reason, I laughed loudest at the quick-drying cement routine.
This cartoon is part of the Looney Tunes Golden Collection Volume 2, and can be seen on disc 2.
