Storyline

The two foolish little pigs escort Red Riding Hood on a short cut through the woods, against the advice of their bricklayer brother. When they encounter the wolf, Red runs ahead to granny's house and the pigs run home. The wolf gets to granny's house first and scares her into a closet, then dresses as granny. Alerted by his brothers, the smart pig arrives just as granny has pulled Red into the closet with her and takes care of the wolf with the help of some hot coals and popcorn.

Solid if inferior sequel to Three Little Pigs
27 March 2010 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

I love Three Little Pigs, it is a childhood favourite with an irresistibly catchy title song. The Big Bad Wolf is a solid if slightly inferior sequel to Three Little Pigs. Compared to Three Little Pigs, it isn't exactly funny and not much happens until the Wolf gets to the grandmother's cottage. Also while Little Red Riding Hood is cute as a button and like a doll in appearance, I did notice her mouth was too stiff and puckered up at times. That said though, the animation was great, and the irresistibly catchy title theme is back and not irritating surprisingly. The Three Pigs are entertaining and The Wolf delights as the "villain of the piece". Also impressive are the vocal talents, the standout being Billy Bletcher as the Wolf. Overall, very good. 8/10 Bethany Cox
