Storyline

The two pigs building houses of hay and sticks scoff at their brother, building the brick house. But when the wolf comes around and blows their houses down (after trickery like dressing as a foundling sheep fails), they run to their brother's house. And throughout, they sing the classic song, "Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf?". Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Trivia

Contrary to popular belief, the wolf doesn't say "I'll huff and I'll puff and I'll blow the house down." What he actually says is, "I'll huff and I'll puff and I'll blow the house IN." This rhymes with the word "chin: in the previous line. The confusion probably arose because the word "down" was actually spoken by the wolf in a spoof of this cartoon featuring Bugs Bunny.

Quotes

Practical Pig: See? I told you what would happen / When that big wolf came around / Only bricks and stone are wolf-proof / Now, at last, you're safe and sound.

Wolf it down
5 October 2013 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Who is afraid of the Big Bad Wolf?

The wolf resplendent with a German accent is after some porkers for dinner. He already runs intensive tuition classes on porcine butchery.

No better cuts can be had done two dumb pigs who think needlessly blowing the wolf warning horn is good for a laugh to annoy their older and cleverer brother.

Warner Brothers may had the Merrie Melodies and Disney had the rival Silly Symphonies. Both were cartoon shorts with action that fitted the music.

The wolf and his offspring might be cunning in enticing the two little pigs but beware the third pig. He is the wolf terminator, he is certainly not afraid of the big bad wolf.
