Daffy runs a diner near Guadalajara, serving mouseburgers with rubber mice as substitutes for actual mice, as he hasn't seen one in ages. However, one angry cat discovers the trick and demands a real mouseburger. At this point, Daffy encounters Speedy, who he tries to cook.
The mouse discovers his intentions and escapes to the desert, with Daffy in hot pursuit. Daffy is foiled each time by Speedy running up a cactus, Daffy accidentally knocking a cactus on himself, and being scared by Speedy into a trash can (prompting the waste management official to think he has gone crazy after Daffy tells him to put him down from within the can).
Finally, the cat demands his burger within two minutes, forcing Daffy to disguise himself as a mouse. He states, "You never know what you can do until you have a gun pointed at your head", the same line used in Golden Yeggs.
This is the third (and final) of three DePatie-Freleng Looney Tunes to use a few Hanna-Barbera sound effects, the other two being Clippety Clobbered, and Sugar and Spies. The next three would be produced by Format Films and part DePatie-Freleng Enterprises before Warner Bros.-Seven Arts took over. That same year, WB gained access to their Sunset Productions cartoons back.
