Too bad none of the shorts in this series seem to be in print

This series of shorts was brief (seven in total), but it's one of Chuck Jones' best concepts and, sadly, not a single one appears to be in print at present, which is a pity, because they are hilarious. Sam and Ralph are an interesting combination and the idea that forms the core to these is great! The ending to this one is particularly good. The ending to the last of the shorts (Woolen Under Where) is the best of them all, but this one's is a very close second. Cartoon Network runs the Sam and Ralph shorts fairly often, but they really should be in print. Well worth watching. Recommended.
