[coming up to the First Pig's house of straw; speaking in faux German]
Open the door! Or I'll huff and I'll puff and I'll blow your house in!
But Adolf, that would break our treaty. You're a good guy. Why, you hate war. You wouldn't go back on your word.
Are you kidding?
[the wolf laughs and brings in "Der Mechanized Huffer und Puffer" to blow down the house, but the First Pig manages to escape]

One of Avery's best and one of the best propaganda cartoons ever!
Had it not been for Disney's Der Fuehrer's Face, this probably would have won the Oscar. As Disney does not show the cartoon, probably because of unflinching content (I wish they'd release it on video. Cartoons aren't just for kids!), I've only seen bits and pieces. But, happily, Blitz Wolf is available and it's great! Tex Avery happily rips Adolf up one side and down the other in an exceptionally good cartoon-even for the master! It's The Three Little Pigs meet Fascism. The villain outdoes the most evil villains in melodrama! Some of the jokes are dated and withot some knowledge of the 1940s, some of them will get by you, but this is an exceptional piece of animation as well as a marvelous example of propaganda in wartime. It's aged remarkably well and Tex Avery had every right to be proud. Most highly Recommended!
