|The Wild Chase|
Road Runner and Speedy Gonzales compete in a race, while Wile E. Coyote and Sylvester team up to catch them to eat for dinner, with predictably backfiring results. Often they mistakenly end up injuring each other in comical fashion.
1. As the race starts Coyote chases after Road Runner only to run into a cloud of dust and fall off the cliff. Sylvester tries the same thing only to find Speedy on the other side of the cliff, which Road Runner to scares him off the cliff.
2. As the racers are coming Coyote and Sylvester catapult rocks to flatten them but this backfires when the rocks crash into each other and lands on Sylvester and Coyote instead.
3. The duo then places iron pellets under bird seed and leaves slices of cheese, while the racers eat the two attach a grenade to roller skate with a magnet but only the magnet part of the roller skate leaves and when Coyote checks the grenade blows up in his face.
4. Coyote rolls a flat rock to flatten the racers but the rock doesn't move it stays and the edge of the cliff Coyote attempts to make it drop but it doesn't move Sylvester comes and they jump on it the rock finally drops the two of them off the cliff.
5. The duo decide to blow up the bridge as the racers are coming but as coyote is placing the dynamite it explodes.
6. Finally, they use a rocket car to chase Speedy Gonzales and the Road Runner, but they drive past them and finish first to win the race, but nobody gets the trophy. They then fly into the air as the rocket car explodes.
- This short reuses animation from Zoom and Bored (1957), Wild About Hurry (1959) and Hopalong Casualty (1960).
- This cartoon implies that Road Runner cartoons originated from Texas (evident that the Road Runner is known as the "Texas Road Burner"). This is also supported in the 2 dollar betting window scene where the Mexicans bet for Speedy Gonzales, while the Texan cowboys bet for the Road Runner.
- This cartoon also reveals that both Wile E Coyote and Sylvester have almost similar personalities.
- Sylvester does not speak in this cartoon.
- This is the only cartoon where Speedy doesn't talk either, except for "Arriba! Andalay! etc."
