Storyline

The wolf had expected to make a meal of both Grandma and Red, but is more than willing to take Bugs as a substitute when he finds Grandma has gone to work at the factory. Although Bugs is more than capable of handling a hungry wolf, the obnoxious, loud-mouthed Red turns out to be a more serious problem. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Absolute classic spin on "Little Red Riding Hood" through the eyes of Looney Tunes.
5 June 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My favorite cartoon of all time, Bugs Bunny or otherwise. An absolutely hilarious spin on Little Red Riding Hood, during the war years, and with Bugs Bunny to put the exclamation point on it. I've actually had friends call me up to tell me, "Turn your TV to channel 'x'", because this cartoon was on, and I was known for it. While there's lots of Bugs cartoons that have me in stitches, this one hit me so hard, I know it verbatim. Before that was known to my friends, most of whom are also Bugs junkies, while playing poker 1 night I said to the guy w/ the winning hand, "That's a pretty good hand for you...TO HAVE!" And the table busted out laughing knowingly, leading to talk of our fave Bugs episodes. Actually, my fave cartoon character ever is Foghorn Leghorn. Everything about that character and his episodes is timeless and hilarious. But this Bugs cartoon has everything that could possibly make you laugh. It was years before I realized Red's voice was that of Bea Benaderet of Petticoat Junction fame. Though once I learned that, the cartoon is even funnier in what all it includes- the little twists played on the classic "Red Riding Hood" story line during the war years. To this day, I still use the line, "....TO HAVE!" when complimenting someone for whatever reason, and am not at all surprised to hear reactions in the unlikeliest of places, including when ordering a beer at a Cubs game- "That's a pretty big case of beer for you... TO HAVE!" Instant chuckles. I'm not at all surprised this ranked 39th in cartoon fame as voted by animators and such. But it does make me wonder how much funnier the first 38 are.
