Classic song in Sheep Shape!
25 July 2010 | by GblakeliiSee all my reviews

Sheep Shape deals with the Wolf's "woman hunger craze" and money search in order to enter the local nightclub in which you must spend a minimum of $100! Blackie, of course, is his foil. The voice actor for the Wolf goes for a Bert "Cowardly Lion" Lahr style. The nightclub, by the way, has an outside sign which features real photographs of the women stars and claims there are "30". Three years later the same studio would out do itself with the cartoon short Gobs of Fun with the character "Herman" & have not "30" but "50" beautiful girls for the nightclub and instead of just photographs they have an actual live action scene inserted! Anyway, a highlight of Sheep Shape is the song, I'm in the Mood for Love, which was written 10 years earlier. The toon moves along at a fast pace, but is in need of restoration, as the color has faded to red.
