REALLY Mixed-Up Fairy Tale
26 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Goldilocks and the Jivin' Bears" was such a WONDERFUL cartoon; it is sad that they do not show it. IT was funny with Papa Bear playing clarinet, Mama Bear on piano, and Baby Bear playing bass. The piano got too hot, so the three bears went for walk in the woods. "Grandma's house" was pictured as a night spot; Red was absent in her war-factory job, so the Wolf went to the Three Bears' house. Goldilocks danced with the Big Bad Wolf and wore him out, after the Three Bears came back from their walk. I am fond of mixed-up fairy tales, having read them as deadpan humor, like "Loldigocks and the Tree Bores". THIS mixed-up fairy tale REALLY tops.
