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>

Smart mouth and very funny
7 March 2004 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Little red riding hood is on her to her grandma's house with a little rabbit for her to stew. When she gets there she finds a wolf in her grandma's bed but one who is unwilling to play the usual game and is only interested in getting a bit of rabbit. Bugs is trapped in the house and has to try and outsmart the wolf.

All the Warner Brother cartoon characters have gone through changes throughout the years and Bugs is no different. Here his smart mouthed persona has an element of the sheer wacky about it, in fact all the characters do. This attitude that the characters have feeds through the whole cartoon and infects the humour to good effect. The gags are very knowing - eg the wolf gets into bed as grandma to find that four other wolves have already stolen his racket! This type of mocking humour is really good and it makes the cartoon funny in a wacky way.

It is the characters where it shows through most noticeably. Bugs is as close to a wise-ass New Yorker here as he ever is and it works well for me as I like that side of him. Riding Hood herself is nice and annoying with good voice work for her! The wolf is really funny and he suits the style of humour of the cartoon.

Overall this is a very funny Bugs cartoon if you like him in smartass mode! The humour, animation and characters all feel rough and ready and all totally suit each other and it is very easy to spend the whole short laughing, right up till the typically Bugs ending.
