Catch That Pigeon
Animated plots frequently involve natural enemies chasing or hunting each other.

Named for the Animated Series Dastardly and Muttley in Their Flying Machines. In that case, its enemy pilots and an Instant Messenger Pigeon.

Can be Road Runner vs. Coyote if we see them comically failing repeatedly to catch it.

Examples:

Comic Books
  • One story in the Warhammer 40K comic Deff Skwadron involves the orks repeatedly failing to intercept a messenger squig. So they breed a special hunting squig to take it down, but find that it won't come back once the messenger is caught. The story ends with the skwadron's boss repeating "Catch that squig!"
