Storyline

While Ralph and Norton are playing a game at the pool hall, Ralph gets into an argument with a mousy little guy who threatens to "tell my friend Harvey on you". Ralph, figuring anybody named Harvey who's a friend of this guy must be as wimpy as him, tells the guy to "bring on Harvey" and brags that he'll beat up the both of them. Harvey turns out to be a tough, hulking bruiser, and challenges Ralph to a fight at the local gym. Ralph frantically looks for a way to get out of it. Written by frankfob2@yahoo.com

Solid Except for the Climax
27 December 2016 | by See all my reviews

The poolroom hi-jinks are a real hoot. Ralph and Ed settle in at the pool table for a friendly game. But how long will it take for Ed to finally shoot. You know all the knuckle warm-ups and arm-stretches he does before writing anything. Here he's got a warm-up routine that may last all night, that is, until Ralph finally blows his top waiting. Then along comes this little milquetoast guy with a squeaky voice, claiming he and his friend Harvey have first dibs on the table. Naturally, Ralph guffaws at the pipsqueak, even when the little guy says his friend Harvey is even bigger than he is. After all, Ralph figures, how tough can a guy named Harvey possibly be. So they shove the little guy aside. And then Harvey arrives.

Fans of Alice should skip this entry since she's only got a cameo appearance. In my view, it's a really good entry except for the climax that seems out-of-place for the series as a whole. Even so, Gleason gets to do his injured bull moose roar that still has my walls shaking.
