it looks as though there's always a reason to suspect people selling houses
3 October 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

OK, so children's stories are among the easiest to spoof, and "Three Little Pigs" is clearly in that number. The Termite Terrace crowd did it not only with "The Windblown Hare", but also "Pigs in a Polka" (in which the story is set to Johannes Brahms's "Hungarian Dance"*), "The Turn-Tale Wolf" (in which the wolf exposes that the pigs were bullies) and "Three Little Bops" (in which the story is told as a jazz song). And those are just the adaptations of this one story! Anyway, this cartoon has the three little pigs knowing that the big bad wolf is coming to blow their houses down, so they decide to sell their houses to some unsuspecting sucker. Who should come along but a certain scwewy wabbit? To be certain, once Bugs Bunny and the wolf realize that the pigs have set them both up, they both decide that it's time to take charge.

Probably the coolest scene is the whole "Little Red Riding Hood" sequence, as it goes to show the guys making these cartoons weren't afraid to create stories as outlandish as they wanted. This one looks mostly like a placeholder in between the really great cartoons, but it's still worth seeing.

*You may recognize that song from "The Great Dictator", in the scene where Charlie Chaplin shaves the man.
