The last of Tex Avery's variations on 'Red Hot Riding Hood' (1943), in which the country wolf visits his city cousin, who tries to teach him the rudiments of civilised behaviour when watching girls in nightclubs - without, it has to be said, a great deal of success... Written by

Oh, I'm terribly sorry, cousin, but this city life is a bit too much for you. I shall have to motor you back to the country.
[he drives Country Cousin back to his home in the country]
Eh, howdy, boys.
[City wolf sees Red and goes through the same wild reactions that his country cousin went through; Country Cousin knocks him out with a mallet and puts him back in the car]
Sorry, cousin. This country life is a bit too much for ya. I guess I'll have to drive ya back to the city!

In this one, Tex Avery pkes continued fun at his old friends, Little Red Riding Hood and the Wolf, but adds a slight twist-he parodies the tale of the Country Mouse and the City Mouse and of course, in true Avery fashion, stands everything on its ear. Tex also proves an old adage-beauty is in the eye of the beholder. All the old Tex Avery signatures are here-eye bulges, double-takes and sight gags galore. Bring the spouse, the kiddies, old Uncle Erasmus, Grampa and the hermit under the floor boards. Great fun will be had by all! Recommended.
