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.
Wile E. Coyote is so hungry that he forms a chicken out of mud, bakes it, and tries to eat it, causing one of his teeth to fall out. He throws the mud bird away when a real one comes along ... See full summary »
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.
The very first cartoon in Warner Bros. popular Wile E. Coyote and Roadrunner series of cartoons. This one has the Coyote chasing the Roadrunner using a rather ingenious invention combining a fridge, a meat grinder, ice cubes, and skis.

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 »
Early Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote short, directed by Chuck Jones with a story by Michael Maltese. As you might expect from this series, there isn't much of a plot, just Coyote trying and failing to capture Road Runner over and over. The gags are funny, though. Some of the methods used by Coyote this time include a dynamite arrow misfire, quick-drying cement that isn't quite quick enough, and the old standby "fun with boulders." But the best and my absolute favorite bit from the whole cartoon (and one of my faves from ANY Road Runner cartoon) is when the Coyote dresses up in drag as a female hitchhiker. The animation is beautiful, with well-drawn characters and backgrounds and exciting action scenes. Really love the colors in this, too. Carl Stalling's music is energetic and fits the action perfectly. A fun cartoon that will surely please fans of the series. The gags are great and the animation is creative, which is all you can ask for from a Road Runner and Coyote short.
