Synopsis

Wile E. Coyote once again makes several attempts to catch the Road Runner, failing each time. This time, he analyzes why he failed and tries to fix his errors. Meanwhile, Ralph Phillips and his brother are watching the action unfold on their TV. Ralph decides he wants to be a roadrunner when he grows up, so his brother plays psychiatrist, with Ralph as his patient. After talking about his daydreaming, Ralph suspects he's cured, but both kids immediately go back to watching television. When Ralph asks why Wile E. Coyote wants to eat the Road Runner in the first place, the coyote explains what roadrunners taste like and the many recipes that can be made out of them. After that, Wile E. Coyote resumes to trying to catch the Road Runner.
