cats live such dangerous lives
12 May 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

OK, so fairy tales and bedtime stories are some of the easiest to make fun of, and "Little Red Riding Hood" may be at the top of the list. Before "Little Red Rodent Hood", the Termite Terrace crowd had already made "Little Red Riding Rabbit", and they later made "Red Riding Hoodwinked". This one portrays a mouse's grandmother telling him the famous story, and the mouse imagines it with himself as Red and Sylvester as the wolf. You can probably guess what sorts of things he does to Sylvester; naturally one trick involves dynamite (they loved their TNT, didn't they?).

So, this is far from the best Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies cartoon; having seen "Duck Amuck" and "What's Opera, Doc?", I expect really clever, high quality from them. But it's OK in a pinch. Currently available on the Looney Tunes website.

Yeah, nobody whistles Dixie anymore.
