One can't just tell all the sight gags. Even in the credits, poor Wile E. Coyote gets blitzed. Most of the cartoon takes place on a desert highway. Trucks run over our boy. He paints a picture of the landscape and ends up falling off a cliff. Every time he gets a new gimmick it backfires. But he is certainly one of the most durable of saps and he never gives in.
