Ralph and Sam are at it again.

Another day, another dollar. Ralph and Sam are hard at work in their jobs as predator and protector. I hope Ralph has a good insurance plan! This is one of the better ones in an all to brief series of shorts directed by Chuck Jones. The characters are fascinating and the sight gags are great. The few bits of dialog are often priceless. I really like Sam! Most definitely worth seeing. Highly recommended.
