"Hello, Sam...Hello, Ralph."

Chuck Jones, after Tex Avery, was the second-greatest director of animated shorts, perhaps of all time and certainly of their theatrical heyday. Jones was absolutely the best at character development and Sam and Ralph are two of his lesser-known gems. They appeared in all of seven shorts as a team and the shorts work exceptionally well. I think the reason they work so well is the basic premise: that what these two do is a job! The shorts are absolutely beautiful and the ending to this one is a scream! Well worth seeing. Recommended.
