Ralph Wolf is the titular main antagonist from the Ralph Wolf and Sam Sheepdog shorts of Looney Tunes.
Although he isn't a villain, Ralph is actually an employee whose job is to steal sheep, while Sam's job is to watch over the sheep. Ralph and Sam are best friends when outside of their jobs, only antagonizing each other during their workday. While on their job, Ralph tries various plans to steal the sheep, only for Sam to thwart him with minimal effort and severely punish him. As their workday ends, they return to their status quo, walking home together only start all over again the next day especially whenever he's injured badly, he takes next days off as Sam can handle both jobs in his absences.
He was voiced by the late Mel Blanc from 1953-1963, and is currently voiced by Jeff Bergman since 2020 Looney Tunes Cartoons.
Outside of job, Ralph is friendly with his neighbor, fellow worker, and best friend, Sam Sheepdog. After the final whistle, Ralph and Sam return their status quo and return home.
Even with his injuries, he still consider Sam as a pal after being told to take a day off for Sam handling both jobs.
Inside of getting a job, Ralph wanted capture and eat sheep, only got beaten by Sam. He attempted to get rid of Sam for the sheep.
- Ralph Wolf bears a striking resemblance with Wile E. Coyote, as they have virtually the same design. They are differentiated by Ralph's red nose instead of Coyote's black one, usually white eyes and fangs. Though both play similar roles, Ralph is merely doing his job, cutting off his chase at the end of his workday, unlike Coyote who has a more fanatical drive.
