Storyline

The two foolish little pigs think crying "wolf" on their brother is great sport. Then the real wolf comes around, with his three little wolves. He dresses as Little Bo Peep, with his sons as the sheep, and they lure the pigs into the wolf den. This time, when the pigs blow the wolf alert horn, their brother ignores it. But they get the wolf to demonstrate his lung power with the horn, and their brother comes running to demonstrate his wolf pacifier. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Brilliant and a lot of fun
27 March 2010 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

Perhaps a little too hectic in pace, but hugely enjoyable nonetheless. It is very funny, from the Wolf disguising himself as Little Bo Beep to trap Fifer and Fiddler as he did when he disguised himself as a mermaid in The Practical Pig, to "The Wolf Pacifier", to the juicy dialogue. The three little wolves are cute as well as ravenous just like their father, but cuter. The animation is excellent, fluid and colourful as I like it, and the music is suitably rousing. Also well done is the voice acting of Billy Bletcher and Pinto Colvig, both do stellar jobs as always.

Overall, hugely enjoyable and highly recommended. Perfect to go with Three Little Pigs, The Big Bad Wolf and The Practical Pig, which are all very entertaining. 9/10 Bethany Cox
