Another Wild-And-Crazy 'Red' Takeoff - Brilliant!
7 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The big twist in this Looney Tunes version of "Little Red Riding Hood" is having two creatures (instead of one) trying to get "Red." Not only do we have the "big bad wolf," but "Sylvester," too!

The latter is there because "Tweety" is being brought in a cage by "Red" to grandma as a present. Sylvester followed the girl and her bird all the way from the city to the forest and is ready to take Grandma's spot in bed to fool the little girl. However, so is the wolf and the two battle it out.

This inventive story also featured the new animated artwork of the period, which started, from what I've observed, around this time: 1955. The drawings are modern, now, and look totally different from previous cartoons.

One thing that didn't change was the humor by the writers: it was usually clever material, geared to make adults laugh as much, if not more, than kids.

Several of the key jokes in this cartoon revolve around the wolf's lack of memory. He can never remember who is who. Anyway, we get two adventures-in-one here: the wolf trying to eat Red and Sylvester trying to eat Tweety! It turns into a hectic last two minutes which includes Granny imitating "Ralph Kramden!"
