Very entertaining and interesting take on the 'Little Red Riding Hood' story
11 July 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The 'Little Red Riding Hood' story has been adapted more than once by Looney Tunes, most notably a very good one featuring Sylvester and Tweety, but 'Little Red Walking Hood' is still very entertaining and interesting.

It is agreed that Egghead's running gag, while having some entertainment value initially, runs out of steam in the second half and gets repetitive and tiresome (which actually is not uncommon with running gags). And while Red and Granny are amusing characters the wolf is the only character who remains consistent all the way through, he is by far the funniest and most interesting of the four and he is a great character.

Animation is as always bright and colourful, with lots of smooth movement, imaginative detail in the gags and rich and meticulous detail in the backgrounds. Carl Stalling's music score is as ever high in energy, liveliness, character, lushness and whimsy, and not only is dynamic and fits effortlessly with the action but enhances everything. This reviewer also absolutely loved the use of pre-existing music, especially "Have You Got Any Castles Baby", "Put on Your Old Gray Bonnet" and Liszt's "Liebestraum No. 3".

'Little Red Walking Hood' is entertaining with the usual wild looniness and wit, with enough fun, bite and imagination. The visual gags are beautifully timed and inventive, only Egghead's running gag doesn't work so well. Love the dynamic between the character, though the wolf makes the most impact and the one character who remains consistent, Red and Granny's material is not quite as strong in the second half but still amusing. The voice acting is excellent as you would expect, top honours coming from Ted Pierce, not often does another voice actor make more of an impression than Mel Blanc (who is still excellent) but Pierce does it here.

In conclusion, entertaining and interesting if not one of my favourites. 8/10 Bethany Cox
