Yesterday, I mentioned there were empty name pages for Bugs Bunny (https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/five-bugs-bunnys). I should've looked a little further, because I now found that Daffy Duck also has an empty name page (https://www.imdb.com/name/nm5814034/). Can a staffer remove this one as well please?

Hey Marco, 
How about these:
Pepe Lepieu: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm8002704/
Tazmanian Devil: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm1564927/
Charlie the Dog: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm8918900/
Ralph Wolf: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm1101100/

(Full disclosure: I consulted an online list of LT characters to do my searches.)

Marco,
You might know the character without realizing this was his name.

Ralph Wolf and Sam Sheepdog were the workers who punched a timeclock in a meadow. Ralph would try to steal sheep, and Sam would thwart his every move with ease, despite having so much hair over his eyes that it seemed he couldn't see. When the whistle blew for lunch they would stop whatever they were doing, get their lunch pails, and dine together. Then the back-to-work whistle would send them to resume their jobs where they left off.

They greeted each other by name at the time clock at the beginning and end of each work day. Ralph looks remarkably like Wile E. Coyote, so they are a creation of Chuck Jones. I want to say there are 6-7 'toons of them; Google indicates 6. Someday, when we get IMDb character with filmographies, I could tell you very quickly where those 'toons are released (and whether that's all folks). Instead, today I have to look up each one individually. And I can't resist:
On the multi-page Wikipedia filmography I find another, the first; links are to online videos (didn't verify how watchable they are):
Don't Give Up the Sheep (1952), GC v1.3
And looking at this character page confirms that 7 is the complete count. 
Sheep Ahoy (1954) not on disc, yes on vhs
Double or Mutton (1955) not on disc, yes on vhs
Steal Wool (1957) Golden Collection v3.4, PC v3.1
Ready, Woolen and Able (1960) not on disc, yes on vhs
A Sheep in the Deep (1962) not on disc, yes on laserdisc
Woolen Under Where (1963) not on disc, yes on vhs

I loved when they aired on TV when I was a child, and will likely look at them soon. Amazing they didn't get released as a group yet. There must be some other characters with only a few 'toons that could make a full disc.

Thanks bdroes, I'm now a fan of Ralph and Sam! The blue-collar premise is brilliant I think.

Michelle, can you lend a hand on the Chuck Jones, Known For ranking? (see last paragraph)

Marco,
VERY happy to have spread the joy.
I'm a big fan of LT, and Chuck Jones in particular. And when CJ paired with Michael Maltese as the writer, it was brilliant^2 (squared), at least.
That feels like a cue to do a personal cartoon film fest of these titles:
https://www.imdb.com/search/title?roles=nm0005062,nm0540789&title_type=feature,tv_movie,short&am...
Should probably start with some non-paired titles for contrast.
Wonder if I'd be curious enough to delve into their Tom & Jerry stuff.

By the way, really difficult to find Chuck Jones among the 24 same names, especially since he's listed as Chuck Jones (I) (Actor, Gremlins (1984)). 
This would be much more helpful: Director, The Bugs Bunny/Road-Runner Movie (1979)
It's his 2nd known-for; would be much better as the 1st.
