Storyline

The Big Bad Wolf's proper little nephew has learned at school that his uncle was the fiend who blew the Three Little Pigs' houses down and is ashamed that his uncle, flesh of his flesh and blood of his blood, could have committed such a deed. When confronted by his nephew with this information, Big Bad pleads innocent. He tells a quite different story of how he was an innocent, nature-loving kid tormented by Three sadistic Little Pigs, who, upon reading of a 50 dollar bounty for a wolf's tail, chased him home and blew his house down!

'Big Bad' Tells HIS Version Of The 'Three Little Pigs'
8 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Now wait a minute, kid. I never done nuttin' of the kind. It was a bum rap!"

That's "Uncle Big Bad" reacting to his little nephew, who comes home from school all upset because they read the "The Three Little Pigs" in the school and his uncle is the villain. "For shame," he cries, walking home.

Like the 1941 cartoon, "The Trial Of Mr. Wolf," we get upside down look at a famous fairy tale, told from the wolf's viewpoint as "Big Bad" gives HIS version of what "really happened" in the story of "The Three Little Pigs." According to Uncle Big Bad "it was them three little pigs that was the mugs."

With dialog like that, and the funny inflections in the wolf's voice as he tells the story (kudos to Mel Blanc) and the excellent graphics, it all adds up to a really fun cartoon to watch and hear.

The wolf really spun a tale would make anyone laugh. Highly recommended, and part of the Looney Tunes Golden Collection Volume 5, which is turning out to an excellent DVD package.
