"You been workin' too hard, Ralph."
29 December 2014 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Another of Chuck Jones' Sam Sheepdog & Ralph Wolf shorts. The premise for all of these was the same: Sam & Ralph are friends but everyday they punch a clock and become enemies. Ralph tries to steal the sheep under Sam's protection and Sam clobbers him for his efforts. The big joke is that this is all in a day's work and whenever the two are off the clock they are still pals. It's an amusing and clever idea but that's what Chuck Jones and Michael Maltese cartoons were known for. This one has several funny gags, including one where Ralph builds a bridge out of dynamite. The animation is excellent. I particularly liked the look on the face of the sheep in Ralph's first theft attempt. It's a good short in a solid series that deserves more recognition.
