Another fun Chuck Jones short featuring Sam Sheepdog and Ralph Wolf. The formula is pretty simple: both characters clock in at work, then Ralph tries repeatedly to steal a sheep out from under Sam's watchful eye. It's a funny set-up that humanizes the animal characters, which is what Looney Tunes did best. Good music from Milt Franklyn. The animation is nice and colorful with some well-done action scenes. As with the rest in the series (which owed a lot to Jones' Road Runner & Coyote series), there are a lot of visual gags and most of them are great. My favorite is probably the Little Bo Peep gag, which never gets old. Anyway, a fun cartoon from an underrated series that I think most fans of old-school Looney Tune will enjoy.
