Mother is making donuts: She throws up a circle of dough, and a cat shoots a hole in it. Later, he fishes them out of the oil with a fishing line; he eats one, and loses all 9 lives. Mother puts together a basket for Red to take to granny. Red uses her cart, which is pushed by her little dog; the cart gets a flat tire, and she inflates a donut to replace it. A wolf (a human lothario) drives by in a flivver, and dashes off to grandma's house, where he finds a note saying she's gone to the movies. He shrinks his car and stashes it in his pocket, then waits for Red, who stopped to watch a dancing flower. Red arrives, and they go into the house, where he attempts to have his way with her. The dog rushes off and gets help from an airplane pilot, who uses a skyhook to remove the house and, ultimately, lift the wolf in his car and drop him in the lake. Written by Jon Reeves <>

Little Red Riding Hood is historical as the first ever Walt Disney cartoon
18 January 2008 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

The plot summary pretty much describes everything that happens in this cartoon. Well, except that when the plane is flying, it literally flaps its wings! According to IMDb, this was also the first animated cartoon Walt Disney ever made. If that's true then what a find this is! I liked many of the beginning gags of the mother throwing the dough up in the air, the cat shooting holes in each dough that's thrown up, then the donut that becomes the result when it lands in the pan. And then the cat losing his nine lives and being taken away as a result of eating the donut (presumably because it was still greasy!). The plot summary also didn't mention the human wolf's car literally floating on air as it passes over cliffs! Or the old bearded man in the picture frame laughing when he watched the mother and the cat's antics or a couple of notes dancing when they came out of the mother's horn as she called for Red! While Little Red Riding Hood was primitive, since this was the earliest animated effort of the eventual legendary Walt Disney, it's worth a look at least once. Found this on YouTube.
