Another very enjoyable Looney Tunes take on 'Little Red Riding Hood'
19 July 2016 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

Perhaps not the best one, not being the funniest, sharpest or wittiest, but still very enjoyable and clever with a lot to like about it. Although it is not up there with the best of Looney Tunes, there is not much to complain about.

The best things about 'Little Red Rodent Hood' are the animation, music and voice acting. The animation is bright and colourful as well as beautifully and smoothly drawn with lots of meticulous detail.

Carl Stalling's music score is lushly orchestrated, bursting with energy and character and is not only dynamic with the action but enhances it. Also consistently superb is the voice acting from Mel Blanc and Bea Benaderet, especially from the ever exuberant and versatile Blanc.

'Little Red Rodent Hood' is not the funniest or wittiest of the cartoons based on the 'Little Red Riding Hood' story, but it is very energetically paced and clever. The gags are still funny, if not exactly hilarious, and timed well, Sylvester bagging all the best moments. Love the little moments too.

Teeny is adorable, without being too cutesy and is never obnoxious. The funnier and more interesting character is Sylvester in the wolf role, and he is a suitable threat while bringing great humour but being written in a way that we feel sorry for him as well. The two have good chemistry together, important in this story.

In conclusion, very enjoyable if not among the best of Looney Tunes. 8/10 Bethany Cox
