The characters of the fairy-tale absolutely refuses to do the tale in the same old way. Instead Little Red Riding Hood is transformed to the hottest singer in town, the wolf becomes The Wolf and grandma turns into a man chaser. Written by

Director Tex Avery was famous for his off the wall cartoons, which were aimed more toward adult audiences than children. Here, however, he pushed the limits of what was considered acceptable, and in several places the film was toned down in order to satisfy the U. S. censors. Original copies were kept and stored away. Shortly afterwards, the army visited MGM studio to view a propaganda movie. Upon seeing this cartoon, they requested (and received) special uncut 16mm prints to send to the soldiers overseas.

Fly away with me to the Riviera. It will be such a beautiful thing. I will give you diamonds, pearls, ermine. I will even give you a new set of white sidewall tires.

Tex, sex, and Avery Rex!! The king of cartoons sends the 1943 censors a message..when the armed forces actually bypassed the Hays office to get an uncensored version of this one off to our troops overseas, they preserved one of the greatest works of art ever committed to celluloid..and allowed resonances to echo into such disparate results as Jessica Rabbit, Cool World, and Ren and Stimpy. For the record, the plot is simple..the old fairy tale is worn out, and needs some new blood..the wolf is now really a wolf, and Red has more than goodies in her basket..now, go and watch this one three hundred times, and you'll see almost all the little jokes lovingly crafted into it..
