Outrageous!
18 April 2005 | by See all my reviews

Tex Avery was always looking for ways to exaggerate his toons into sight gags of outrageous hilarity, and in this one he spares nothing: from the opening montage in which a feral Wolf chases Little Red Riding Hood across the titles only to realize they're in the wrong story, to later introducing the main story -- that of a much different, sexier Cinderella, one who sings in Castle Manana while still having to be back by midnight or else. Insanity ensues of course when she calls on her Fairy Godmother to come to her aid and dress her up; in pure Avery fashion we see numerous chases in which the Godmother goes ape over the Wolf and bends over backwards to literally chain him to her: the final twist is revealed in the end when Cinderella zooms back to her house at the stroke of 12:00 AM, swiftly changes to an industrial outfit, and realizes she's surrounded by wolves on her way to work. Hysterical animation, always a treat to watch on TCM's Cartoon Alley.
