  1. Ralph & Sam had different names in the first such cartoon that was released, but I can’t remember what they were.
    P.S. I recently watched one of the earliest Tom & Jerry cartoons, in which “Tom” was actually called “Jasper”.

  2. The rams use a curling iron for their horns that would otherwise lay flat. Not sure what is confusing about it.

  3. @Kilby: In the first one, Sam is called Ralph. In the second, Sam is Ralph, Ralph is George, and George (the night shift sheepdog) is Sam. After that, they’re consistent.

    Looking at it again, I suspect the Bruce and Frank stuff (which seems to be the part Bill doesn’t understand, Mark M) may be a result of Tundra’s format. Gary Larson would have had one sheep looking in a mirror, with an amusing product name visible somewhere. Tundra just isn’t up to that level and the cartoonist needed more than just some sheep curling their horns.

  4. They’re just going on with their morning routine, getting ready for “work” being rams. Otis on the right coming in still has bedhead horns.

  5. Oh the struggles we have keeping our horns curled just so, especially after a night out on the town, after a hard sleep, or when the humidity is high!

  6. If the curling iron is obvious what else is there to be confused about?

    The name Bruce made me think of the Monty Python Australian Philosophers skit. As did the sheep I suppose…

  7. “Gary Larson would have had one sheep looking in a mirror, with an amusing product name visible somewhere. Tundra just isn’t up to that level and the cartoonist needed more than just some sheep curling their horns.”

    I think Tundra is trying to show the process. To show the horns need curling he needed to show the sheep in all stages.

    >”Tundra just isn’t up to that level”

    I’d make a snarky comment about what level I think Tundra is up to but it’s probably better for me to be positive…..
