Trivia

The piglet is based on Red Skelton's Mean Widdle Kid. The wolf (especially when he laughs) recalls Harold Peary's radio character, the Great Gildersleeve. See more »

A Tex Avery Christmas!!!
26 December 2000 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This cartoon, which I think is one of Tex Avery's best, features as its protagonist a little pig who seems to be a take-off on Red SKelton's Mean Widdle KId character-the voice, mannerisms and even on or two of SKelton's catch-phrases are present in this cartoon. The Wolf doesn't stand a chance! Junior isn't very well-behaved and is down-right dangerous. He makes Dennis the Menace look like Little Lord Fauntleroy! Typical Tex Avery sight-gags, but more verbal humor than usual for an Avery short. From downtown at the buzzer, he shoots, he scores! The Crowd goes wild! This is an excellent cartoon. Most highly Recommended!!!
