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>

A memorable and excellent classic. Teaches the good morals of smarts and clever, and it prepares to be ready!
10 February 2011 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

I remember as a kid reading and flipping thru the pages of the classic storybook "Three Little Pigs". I highly enjoyed it as it taught good moral lessons of hard work, courage, and to be prepared and ready when danger strikes always be alert! I as a kid was even afraid of the big bad wolf! So it was a real treat when I just recently watched the 8 minute Disney short. It's one of Disney's best animated classics. It moves along beautifully by the sounds and singing of the three pigs saying "Who's Afraid of the big bad wolf"? And remember I'll huff and puff and blow down your house! Anyway the wicked wolf begins his journey thru the wooded landscape towards the pigs dwellings. And the first two pigs who are both laid back and take things as a joke clearly are not concerned with the wolf and both put up their new homes. One made of straw the other of sticks, yet after the wolf huffs and puffs and blows down their houses, the two seek shelter and protection with their brother the third pig and this serious and hard working swine very wisely made his home of bricks! So no matter how much huffing and puffing this house will not be blown down.

Overall this is one great memorable classic a Disney favorite it teaches the morals that can be applied in life like being clever, and smart plus with a little hard work one will be protected as you will not fall prey to the evil traps and destruction of your shelter! "Three Little Pigs" is an entertaining classic and educational for the lessons it teaches.
