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.

Fairly Routine, But An Extra 'Star' For The Dehydrated Boulder
They don't waste any time here as the opening scene is in the middle another chase as The Road Runner (Tastyus Supersonicus) stays ahead of Wile E. Coyote (Eternali Famishis) who meets his first "demise" when he takes a wrong turn and disappears under the "Danger: Bridge Out" sign. He climbs out of the hole he made many feet below, discards his bib, knife and fork and goes back to work thinking of other ways to catch his prey.
At first, the coyote uses old-fashioned non-expensive methods such as simply tripping him, or a lasso with some TNT or cheap rollers skates with a sail and a fan tied to his torso. Later, he employs his standard boulder, anvil, springs, etc. Actually this was best of the anvil gags I've seen and the "dehydrated boulders" was something new and extremely clever.
Finally, he gets to the expensive "Acme" purchases, this time a "junior steam roller" with an outboard motor, which is pretty funny.
Overall, it was the routine story, but entertaining, and part of the Looney Tunes Golden Collection Volume Two DVD set. I still laugh at the idea of a "dehydrated" boulder!
