The Little Red Riding Hood and the two little pigs are adventurous to defend tries to hiding under the bed, the big bad wolf is blowing up the brick house, But they starts an odyssey of rebuilding and retribution.
Max Hare and Toby Tortoise are having a foot race. Max has much more style, and is generally cocky. He pauses for a short nap, to chat up the bunnies outside a girl's school (and show off in several sports). When he hears the crowd roar for Toby approaching the finish line, he takes off, but a last-minute sprint, and a long neck, give Toby the inevitable victory.Written by

Well - heh, heh, heh - May the best man - heh - win.
Thanks, I will. but I won't beat ya too bad. Shake.
[Toby goes to shake Max's hand, but he pulls it away]
Ha-ha, ha-ha, ha-ha!
Heh-heh-heh-heh. That's a funny joke, but - heh-heh - you caught me fair and square.
No hard feelings?
Put 'er there.
[Again Max pulls away his hand just as Toby stretches out his]
Ha-ha, ha-ha, ha-ha!

The Tortoise and the Hare was another excellent Disney Silly Symphony
Just watched this Oscar-winning animated short on YouTube. Based on the classic Aesop Fable, the obnoxious hare challenges the shy tortoise to a relay race. If you're familiar with the tale, you know how it goes but this being animated, you get the hare causing some wind to blow as well as him stopping to chat up some feminine admirer fans while the tortoise keeps going. There are some amusing gags but nothing hilarious. Still, this was a pretty exciting cartoon from Walt Disney's Silly Symphonies and it spawned a sequel-Toby Tortoise Returns-that I did think was hilarious. Oh, and it's easy to see why Frank Tashlin thought the hare-eventually called Max in the sequel-was the inspiration for Warner Bros.' Bugs Bunny. So for all that, I highly recommend The Tortoise and the Hare. P.S. I first saw some of these scenes when The Disney Channel presented on their "DTV" program their version of The Doobie Brothers' "It Keeps You Running" with this as well as other Disney cartoon scenes for the music video.
