Ralph surrounds Sam with every weapon imaginable, planing to do away with him once and for all. But the whistle blows, Ralph can't open fire, and the two pals walk off into the sunset.

"Good to be alive, Ralph."
7 September 2016 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

The final Ralph & Sam short and the only one not directed by Chuck Jones. This one's directed by former Jones animators Phil Monroe and Richard Thompson. For those not familiar with the series, it basically goes like this: every day friends Ralph Wolf and Sam Sheepdog clock in to work, where they become enemies as Ralph tries to steal the sheep Sam is guarding. When the work day is through, the two clock out and become friends again. In this one, they are shown to also be roommates but I think this is the only time where that's the case. Also in this one Sam is shown to be pretty clumsy, walking into things and off cliffs because his hair is in his eyes. I believe that bit was used sparingly in a previous short or two but here it's done a lot at the beginning and then forgotten. It's a weird choice as Sam is the "straight man" of these things and giving him bits of business like that throws off the dynamic. The animation is fine; nothing special but by early 60s standards at WB it's pretty good. Nice music and voice work. None of the gags are particularly clever or funny. The last shot is one of the best of any final cartoon in any of the classic Looney Tunes series.
