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.

After Wile E. Coyote takes his Acme Super Leg Muscle Supplement, he takes off in a blaze of fire. The road runner leaves smoke, the coyote leaves fire. The sounds for this fire effect, done by sound genius Treg Brown, were made using an old flame thrower, a motorcycle clip, and sounds from the airplanes in Dawn Patrol, all sped up a bit. See more »

Another good entry in the Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner series has our favorite dumb but hard working friend still trying to catch his dinner. A motorcycle, a tiger, leg building vitamins and even a pop up steel wall are just some of the devices used by Wile. This is another fun, if routine, entry that manages to offer up some good twists as well as some nice laughs. The best sequence in my opinion is the one where Wile digs a trap to catch his dinner and thinks it has worked until he jumps into the hole. Another nice gag deals with him taking some vitamins to grow stronger legs, which makes him run faster but there is naturally a downfall.
