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 places 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. Confused, he walks into the tunnel and finds out he can move in the painting as well. As he proceeds to leave the painting, he bonks himself into the wall and realizes he cannot escape, whereupon Road Runner washes off the painting, and the coyote, into obscurity in a nearby sewer gutter before continuing his sprint. Upon emerging from the gutter, Wile E. is immediately hit by a semi trailer truck.
