Wile E. Coyote tries to catch the Road Runner using a dynamite stick on a fishing pole, a Christmas present wrapping machine, and ACME Earthquake pills, which the Coyote discovers don't affect Road Runners, but only after he himself has angrily downed a whole bottle of the pills! The Coyote quakes and shivers away boulders and whole mountains before the pills wear off. Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

Enjoyable Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote short from the great Chuck Jones. It's a fast-paced cartoon that never slows down, although I wouldn't put it up there with the best of the series. This one features the classic earthquake pill gag and an amusing bit involving a Christmas packaging machine. There are some other gags involving dynamite that are okay, too. The animation is solid, if a little less exciting than Jones' better Road Runner cartoons. The colors are a little dull, as well. Lots of pink and gray. Milt Franklyn's music is upbeat and playful. It's an entertaining entry in the series that any fan should enjoy. The earthquake pill gag alone is worth giving it a look.
