Great Short Film
23 October 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A wonderful short film adaptation of the children's story. I love the way Sergei Prokofiev (the writer of the original story) added music to the narration of this interesting little tale. Disney's version is quite cute and worth the 15 minutes of watching.

The wolf in this cartoon short is scary looking as other reviewers have mentioned. I think it's his eyes because they are evil looking red and yellow - almost hypnotizing. Plus the fact the wolf is hungry, on the prowl, and willing to eat anything. Yet the wolf is also a bit comical along with the rest of the toons.

If you like this film, then you might like: "Bambi", "The Jungle Book" or "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs".

9/10
