"Good morning, Sam."
29 August 2016 | by utgard14See all my reviews

Another fun Ralph & Sam short from Chuck Jones. The plot is basically the same in all of these shorts - a sheepdog named Sam guards the flock of sheep while a wolf named Ralph tries repeatedly to steal one. The joke is that they clock in and out of their jobs each day and when they aren't working they're friendly with one another. Basically all the humor comes from the various sight gags, just like Jones' Road Runner series. In this one, Ralph tries dynamite, a barrel of gunpowder, ACME springs, and a trapeze to get at the sheep. My favorite part of the cartoon is a version of the rake gag that Sideshow Bob would do so well on The Simpsons decades later. It's a fun cartoon in an underrated series. If you like the Road Runner and Coyote cartoons, you should enjoy this as well.
