Daffy is wandering in the desert. Desperately thirsty, he digs to find water but finds a large gold nugget instead. He decides to keep it for himself, but is spotted by a pack-rat who takes the gold. Daffy is able to get it back, but loses his sanity under the broiling sun. Delirious, he role-plays a hotel guest, a baseball player and commentator, a barroom customer, and a dance hall patron. The rat keeps tracking him, offering water for the nugget.
On CBS' The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Show, the part where Daffy pulls a gun on the pack rat when the pack rat takes his gold nugget was cut.
