Ready, Woolen and Able

Ready, Woolen and Able

Ready, Woolen and Able is a 1960 Warner Bros. Merrie Melodies cartoon directed by Chuck Jones. The short was released on July 30, 1960, and stars Ralph Wolf and Sam Sheepdog.


Like all Ralph Wolf and Sam Sheepdog shorts, this one revolves around Ralph Wolf trying to steal the sheep which Sam Sheepdog is guarding. The short begins with a juxtaposition of how Sam and Ralph get to work. Sam takes a leisurely drive to work in what appears to be a caricature of a shoddy Ford Model T. Behind him, Ralph speeds past in a drag racer. After Ralph hastily parks and walks away, Sam pulls into his spot, careful to make the correct hand signals as he turns.
