This short, in addition to being an early, if somewhat restrained, Tex Avery re-casting of a familiar fairy tale, features Tex Avery doing voice work as Papa Bear. You can recognize he vocals talents of Mr. Avery almost instantly just by the distinctive timbre he had, but I suspect the reason he did so much voice work was that marvelous belly laugh he had! It was absolutely wonderful and was used to great effect even in cartoons he didn't direct. Pay close attention to the opening, especially the cast credits. A delightful little short, well worth the effort to see. Most highly recommended.
