Sam Sheepdog and Ralph E. Wolf

Sam and Ralph were among my favorite Looney Tunes characters. I thought of them this morning when I said hello to my co-worker as I came into the office. So I thought I’d look them up on YouTube. Google is great. I searched for [wolf sheepdog looney tunes], and got the Wikipedia article.

All told, there were seven episodes that starred these two. The first was made in 1953, and the last in 1963. I was able to find all but the first (Don’t Give Up the Sheep) on YouTube. There are some clips of the first episode, with an alternate sound track, but I couldn’t find the original.

I did find Don’t Give Up the Sheep on mojvideo, but didn’t see a way to embed it.

Here are the others, from YouTube:

There also was a cartoon in which Taz takes the place of Ralph.

I didn’t much like the voice of Sam in that episode.

YouTube has a lot of the old Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies cartoons. Be careful. You could spend the whole day laughing.

If you find Don’t Give Up the Sheep on YouTube, please let me know so that I can include it here.
