"One Day on Beetle Rock" is an episode of Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color. It aired on November 19, 1967.


From California's Sequoia National Park. The player's are nature's wild creatures: their stage is called Beetle Rock. Their set is provided by the majestic Sierra Nevada Mountains. Their audience - a tourist family - is unaware of the drama but they have front row seats. The plot features comic relief: deer mice invading a tourist cabin and a pair of coyotes bungling their hunt. But most of the action is in dead earnest. Each animal strives to eat without being eaten, leading to dramatic encounters between predator and prey: a red-tailed hawk vs. a king snake, a weasel battling a gopher snake, a hungry cougar attacking a stag.
