Lots Of Hot Air Make This One Of The Best Looney Tunes Ever
8 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This cartoon first is a fantastic parody of The Three Little Pigs Story and then later Little Red Riding Hood. All of it is really cleverly-written material. Congrats to Warren Foster for the story and to director Robert McKimson for making the most of it. The dialog in here is some of the best I've ever heard in a Looney Tunes cartoons. The pigs and the wolf were incredible

It begins showing us that the three little pigs have just read the famous children's story about the big bad wolves blowing their houses down, so rather than having that inevitable disaster happen, they get together and say, "Let's find a sucker to buy these houses." That sucker turns out to be our hero, Bugs Bunny. These little pigs, by the way, are hilarious. Their street-smart wise guys.

A wolf walks by, and he's reading the same book! According to the story, he has to blow the house down. He's not sure he's saying the lines with enough authority. .

The cartoon changes direction when Bugs decides to play Little Red and get back at the wolf for blowing down two of the houses he just bought. When he says, "You know this means war!," then look out - it's time Bugs to do his thing.....but the wolf is a good match for him.

This can be seen on the Looney Tunes Golden Collection Volume Three. It's one of the best cartoons in the collection. It makes me wish that Bugs and this wolf had teamed up in other cartoons because they make a great pair.
