After punching in for work, Sam Sheepdog deals with Ralph Wolf's attempts to steal the flock, which this time make use of a balloon, a fake Acme-brand rock and a bicycle-propelled submarine.

Just another day on the job
15 September 2015 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This is the second short of what would come to be known as the Sam Sheepdog and Ralph Wolf series (although the characters are named differently here). Created by the great Chuck Jones, the premise of them all is that the sheepdog watches over the sheep while the wolf tries to steal them, usually resulting in the wolf getting beaten up. The primary joke is that the wolf and dog are just doing their jobs (even punching a clock) and, when the work day is done, they're friends. It's one of the best Looney Tunes (or Merrie Melodies) series that didn't involve one of their main characters. Ralph Wolf is certainly similar to Wile E. Coyote, in appearance and actions, but he's a little less crafty and more obvious than Wile E. Coyote. This is a very funny short with a lot of sight gags that work well. The animation is bright and colorful. The music is lively and fun. It's not the best of the Ralph & Sam shorts but it's a good one.
