Two Parodies for the price of one!
6 February 2001 | by See all my reviews

In this one, Tex Avery pkes continued fun at his old friends, Little Red Riding Hood and the Wolf, but adds a slight twist-he parodies the tale of the Country Mouse and the City Mouse and of course, in true Avery fashion, stands everything on its ear. Tex also proves an old adage-beauty is in the eye of the beholder. All the old Tex Avery signatures are here-eye bulges, double-takes and sight gags galore. Bring the spouse, the kiddies, old Uncle Erasmus, Grampa and the hermit under the floor boards. Great fun will be had by all! Recommended.
