A young Indian sent on a quest by his chief to capture a woodpecker, sees Woody riding through the desert on a motor scooter shooting cans off of cacti. Buzz Buzzard witnesses the Indian's unsuccessful first attempt to capture Woody and offers to give the Indian a hand. They employ Wile E. Coyote-like schemes to catch Woody, but Buzz Buzzard only ends up catching Woody's scooter (and getting knocked out by it). Woody then puts a red rubber glove on unconscious Buzz's head and tells the Indian he has found a giant woodpecker. The Indian believes it and drags Buzz home. The Indian chief is quite impressed at first, but he soon discovers the truth and spanks the young Indian for fooling him.
