Wile E. Coyote, on his usual hunting rounds, spies Road Runner having a drink from a water fountain during his morning sprint. To detour Road Runner, he cuts the road and rearranges it near a large rock where he paints a tunnel onto for his prey to crash into. Instead, Road Runner runs straight through the rock as if by magic. The confused coyote walks into the tunnel and finds out he move in the painting as well. As he proceeds to leave the painting, he bonks himself into the wall, whereupon Road Runner washes off the paint (and Wile E.) into obscurity in a nearby sewer gutter. Upon emerging from the gutter, Wile E. is immediately hit by a semi trailer truck.
