Surely Everyone Knows This Story
11 May 2008 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Little Red Riding Hood gets the Walter Lantz treatment as Knothead and Splinter, having been told the tale, are sent to visit Granny. Pulling out out hammers, dumping the wolf in the washing machine, using the artillery gun on him, and so forth, they give him a hard time. The story is eked out with various cameos and decently executed gags, but there isn't that much to this particular version until the final sight gag, which is a good one.

Over all, though, this is not a particularly auspicious cartoon. The whole thing is suffused with an air of mechanical construction with little of the inventiveness that made the Lantz cartoons such a joy in the 1930s and 1940s.
