This is another fine cartoon in the Road Runner vs. Wile E. Coyote series. In this one the Coyote tries to catch the bird with an elastic string between two rocks, a big rocket, seeds that can create tornadoes, a barrel with dynamite and something you normally use in a circus. Of course every attempt ends with hurting himself instead of catching or killing the Road Runner.
This is a terrific cartoon. It is directed by Chuck Jones and that is enough to make a cartoon work. His timing is perfect with every gag. The sequence with the barrel and dynamite is the best example, especially the Coyote's eyes in the final moments are a nice detail. The gag with the thing normally used in the circus is perfect as well. Another fine cartoon.
