Storyline

The two foolish little pigs think crying "wolf" on their brother is great sport. Then the real wolf comes around, with his three little wolves. He dresses as Little Bo Peep, with his sons as the sheep, and they lure the pigs into the wolf den. This time, when the pigs blow the wolf alert horn, their brother ignores it. But they get the wolf to demonstrate his lung power with the horn, and their brother comes running to demonstrate his wolf pacifier. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Enjoyable but I found myself rooting for the wolves!
17 January 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Because "The Three Little Pigs" was such a popular short and garnered an Oscar, it's not surprising that Disney Studio would bring back the pigs for some sequels. One is "The Big Bad Wolf" and another is this film, "Three Little Wolves". And, like the prior sequel, it's a mash-up--combining two old stories into one. In this case it's "The Boy Who Cried Wolf" along with "The Three Little Pigs".

The short begins with not just the Big Bad Wolf but his three kids--who he's teaching how to capture pigs. As for the pigs, they are EXACTLY the same as in the previous shorts. In other words, the two stupid pigs are still quite stupid and seem to have learned nothing! This really annoyed me and had me wanting to see the wolves win! The two idiot pigs find a new game--yelling 'WOLF' just to watch their industrious brother come running. After a while, he gets sick of their games and, once again, I kept hoping the wolves would have a nice pork dinner. Unfortunately, this wasn't to be as the smart pig eventually arrives to save his awful brothers when they are captured by the hungry wolves. Well animated but the story is getting a bit thin.
