Enjoyable but I found myself rooting for the wolves!, 17 January 2014
Author: planktonrules from Bradenton, Florida

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.
