Did You Know?


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 »

One nasty pig
25 June 1999 | by (Denver, CO) – See all my reviews

'One Ham's Family' is a twist on the Three Little Pigs story. Here the wolf attempts to catch the pigs on Christmas Eve by dressing up as Santa Claus. There are some funny bits here, I mean it is Tex were expecting a tear-jerker? However, the little pig that does battle with the wolf is a thoroughly unlikeable character with a voice that is at times very difficult to understand. I guess I've always felt that Avery was more successful with characters who, though they did some nasty things, still had a sense of innocence to Droopy. Here, the pig is just plain nasty.
