'''Going! Going! Gosh!''' is a 1952 cartoon in the ''WesternAnimation/MerrieMelodies'' series, starring WesternAnimation/WileECoyoteAndTheRoadRunner.

After yet another unsuccessful attempt at getting his utensils on the Road Runner, Wile E. formulates new plans like a bow and arrow with dynamite, a giant slingshot, quick-drying cement on the road, tossing a grenade while hiding in the sewers, masquerading as a hitch hiker, a painted picture of a bridge, pushing a boulder down a mountain, dropping an anvil from a hot-air balloon, and finally, lunging at the bird with a javelin.

!!Tropes:
* AnvilOnHead: Wile E. tries to drop an anvil on his target while in a hot-air balloon, but the very moment he drops it, the balloon is quickly flung high into the stratosphere. Then, after Wile E. finally falls back to Earth, the anvil lands on ''him''.
* BinomiumRidiculus: Also the page image. Almost a precise duplicate of the fake scientific names in the last two cartoons.

* CirlcingBirdies: Wile E. gets these twice in the last two gags.
* DisguisedInDrag: The Coyote disguises himself as a female hitch hiker (ala WesternAnimation/BugsBunny) to get the Road Runner to flirt with him. However, the Road Runner simply knocks him over and informs him that he already has a date.
* EpicFail: ''''''Everything'''''.

* GrenadeHotPotato: Wile E. tries to toss a live grenade at his target while hiding in a manhole. Unfortunately, he is trapped when the Road Runner knocks over a boulder which lands on the manhole. '''KA-BOOM!'''
* HomingBoulders: Wile E. pushes a boulder down a mountain, which fails to hit the Road Runner and is flung back onto the same mountain he is on, hitting him instead.
* MythologyGag: The Road Runner signing "I've already got a date" while wearing the disguised Coyote's wig is a callback to 1949's "WesternAnimation/FastAndFurryOus", where he does the same thing (with a sign that reads "Road Runners can't read") after failing to fall for the Coyote's school crossing trap.
* PaintedTunnelRealTrain: The Coyote makes a second attempt at using deception to stop his prey, this time with a giant canvas on the edge of a cliff. It fails as usual, and a truck appears out of nowhere and hits the Coyote, which prompts him to chase the Road Runner, only to burst through the canvas and fall to the ground below.
* TakenForGranite: Non-magical variation. After getting covered in wet cement, Wile E. tries to move, but the cement hardens before he can take a step, leaving him frozen like a statue. How exactly he broke free is left to our imagination.
* TalkingWithSigns: The Road Runner's response to the Coyote trying to trick him as a disguised hitch hiker? [[spoiler: "I've already got a date"]].
* ToonPhysics: Wile E.'s first attempt: he tries to shoot an arrow loaded with TNT from a bow, but the bow gets fired instead of the arrow, leaving the latter to explode in the Coyote's face. [[CueTheFallingObject Part of the charred arrow then falls off]].
* WetCementGag: Wile E. tries this in his third attempt to stop the Road Runner, but the bird is so fast that he harmlessly passes through the cement - and spills some of it onto the Coyote.
