Dumb Dog vs Wolf
29 March 2016 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

The Sheepish Wolf (1942)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

A rather dumb sheep dog doesn't realize that the "sheep" he's been playing with is actually a wolf in sheep clothing. This here leads to a series of events where the wolf tries his best to get a good dinner.

THE SHEEPISH WOLF is a story that was told several times in many different shorts. It's the classic tale of a dumb sheep dog who wants to prove himself smart (or brave) by battling the mean old wolf. This version here is slightly entertaining thanks in large part to the dog being so dumb. There are a few small laughs to be had from the story including one sequence where the dog actually throws the wolf in with the sheep not realizing what he has done. The animation itself is quite good as is the music score. A few more laughs certainly would have helped things.
