Trivia

In his autobiography "Chuck Amuck", longtime animator and producer Chuck Jones relates that while this cartoon was in production, MGM's animation producer Fred Quimby told new director Tex Avery to be careful when caricaturing Adolf Hitler, saying, "After all, we don't know who's going to win the war".

Quotes

Adolf Wolf: [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!
First Pig: But Adolf, that would break our treaty. You're a good guy. Why, you hate war. You wouldn't go back on your word.
Adolf Wolf: 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]

Very Funny!
4 July 2001 | by (Lexington KY) – See all my reviews

It was funny at how it mocked Disney's "The Three Little Pigs" (especially since the voice of the third little pig was the same as the one in the Disney version), it is very dated however due to the wolf being modeled after Adolf Hitler. I just saw this cartoon a few days ago and I laughed my butt off! I have to admit Tex Avery knew what to do to make a cartoon funny.
