Storyline

Quotes

[opening lines, after quick musical introduction and opening credits]
Narrator: Good evening, kiddies. Once upon a time, Little Red Riding Hood was skipping through the woods. She was going to her grandmother's house to take grandma a basket of nice goodies. But waiting in the woods was a mean old wolf ready to pounce upon poor Little Red Riding Hood.
Wolf: Oh, stop it! "Waiting in the woods was the mean old wolf ready to pounce on poor Red Riding Hood." I'm fed up with that sissy stuff. It's the same old story...

Red the hottest of the lot!
16 June 2002 | by (Bexleyheath Kent UK) – See all my reviews

Got to be the funniest and fastest Avery cartoon there is, the best "modern" slant on the red riding hood story, with the wolf lusting after Red Hot at every opportunity. Note the reference to the wartime car tyre shortage with the line...."I can even get you a set of white wall tyres!" I,ve seen the 'toon loads of times and it always never fails to make me laugh long and loud. Working as a projectionist in the cinema I have also shown the toon, and on examining the print it is really noticeable that many frames have been cut out when "Red" makes an appearance. Enjoy the toon!
