Double or Mutton, starring Sam Sheepdog and Ralph Wolf premiered in movie palaces around the country on July 13, 1955. Directed by Chuck Jones, it featured a story by Michael Maltese and the animation was provided by Richard Thompson, Abe Levitow, Keith Darling and Ken Harris. Backgrounds and scene layouts were designed by Philip DeGuard, with voice characterization by Mel Blanc. Milt Franklyn orchestrated the music. These three drawings are Chuck's layouts for the final scene–Sam's pulverization of Ralph is interrupted for the day by the whistle of the clock.
