Storyline

The two pigs building houses of hay and sticks scoff at their brother, building the brick house. But when the wolf comes around and blows their houses down (after trickery like dressing as a foundling sheep fails), they run to their brother's house. And throughout, they sing the classic song, "Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf?". Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Just love the music!
25 December 2001 | by (Saint Paul, MN) – See all my reviews

As for the censored version the last poster refers to, I've never heard of that, and the supposedly censored version is the one on the new Silly Symphonies DVD.

Anyhow, this is one of the most famous of the Silly Symphonies, going so far as to inspire the title for the Edward Albee play (and subsequent Mike Nichols movie) Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?. The music just bops in this short, and kids are likely to bop along to it. It's very funny, and very cute. But note the dark little joke in the corner: there is a picture of the pigs' mom and another of their dad. Mom is a sow with piglets suckling on her. Dad, however, is a line of sausages. You might have missed that one if you were not paying attention. Any you definitely missed it if you saw it as a little kid! 10/10.
