The Big Bad Wolf (1934)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Sequel to THREE LITTLE PIGS isn't quite as good but this is certainly still a charmer. The hard working pig is building a bigger brick house while the two lazier ones just play around. Little Red Riding Hood stops by to ask for directions and she decides to take the short cut through the woods even though she was warned. We all know what happens next. This is certainly a charming little gem from Disney who certainly knew how to handle these subjects without any problem. I thought the way the two stories were combined were quite clever and this was especially true during the introduction scene where we see that the two lazy pigs didn't learn their lesson. The animation is certainly some of the best that you're going to see from this period and I will also add that popcorn has never had a better impact in any film than it does right here.
