Many of their sketches were similar in style to the Buddy and Jim sketches; so much so, in fact, that at least one segment, the "Mirror" segment, was a remake of a Buddy and Jim skit.
Unlike the previous comedy duos, Wally and Ralph would continue for more than one season, appearing until season 5.
The theme music for this series was composed by Joe Raposo.
Wally and Ralph are about to go on a trip. They attempt to carry off an empty suitcase and a pile of stuff (shirts, pants, socks, tennis rackets, baseball gloves). They finally get the idea that it would be easier if they put the stuff in the suitcase. (First: Episode 0319)
Ralph is standing between two trees, playing with a long piece of rope like a cowboy. Along comes Wally carrying a wet shirt. Together, they solve the problem of where to hang the wet shirt to dry. They tie the ends of the rope around their chests, stretch it, and hang the shirt between them. (First: Episode 0331)
The duo drops by the laundromat to wash their clothes, but they all don't fit in the washing machine. They try the other one instead, finding the same result. They realize if they split the loads in half, they can make use of both washers. They proceed to rip all their clothing in half. (First: Episode 0334)
Wally sits alone in a room holding a giant key while Ralph tries to come in through a locked door. Wally suggests using the giant key to break the door down, but Ralph climbs in through the window to show him how a key is used to unlock a door. Ralph can now come in. (First: Episode 0338)
Wally gives Ralph a mirror as a present. Wally looks at it, and says it is a picture of himself. But when Ralph looks at it, he sees a picture of himself. When they look at it together, they see a picture of both of them. This sketch was a re-shoot of a Buddy and Jim sketch. (First: Episode 0342)
|Setting a Table
Wally and Ralph try to figure out how to set a table. Ralph puts two plates, two cups and two saucers on the table first, leaving Wally with the problem of how to get the tablecloth on under the dishes. (First: Episode 0351)
|Pants and Belts
Wally has a new pair of pants, but they're too big for him. Ralph has a belt, but isn't quite sure how to secure it. Ralph ultimately suggests Wally eat a lot of bananas until he's big enough to fit into the pants. (First: Episode 0353)
The duo is outside in the rain. With access to a pushcart full of umbrellas, they open one after another and throw them aside on the ground. They are consequently puzzled as to how umbrellas keep you dry. Finally, when one of them suggests "taking the wrapping off" of it first (i.e., the cloth part), they reduce an umbrella down to the ribs just as the rain stops. It works! (First: Episode 0355)
Wally thanks Ralph for a box of stuff he's been gifted, but worries about how he'll get home in the rain without getting wet. He empties the box's contents to use as a covering on his head, but now he has nothing to carry all that stuff with. (First: Episode 0359)
Wally and Ralph take turns sitting at the bottom of a slide saying "weee!" but they don't find it very fun. Wally pushes Ralph from the bottom to the top, and Ralph comes down the ladder to let Wally have a turn. "Weee!" (First: Episode 0380)
|Short Table Leg
Wally and Ralph attempt to play a board game, but when they move their table into better light, the brick that was propping up the shorter leg stays behind. They try various methods of stabilizing the table, finally settling on using the board game. Without access to the game, they decide to play with the brick instead. (First: Episode 0388)
The duo buys a large jar of glue. The jar was unlabeled, so they get a label reading "Glue". But they cannot figure out how to get the label to stick to the jar. At one point, they accidentally spill some glue on the table; they use the label to wipe it up. Still with no solution, they decide to go out to dinner. So they put the label somewhere (on the jar!) and leave. (First: Episode 0390)
