Storyline

Three hip, Little Pigs are travelling entertainers, moving from straw to wood, to brick nightclubs, playing swinging tunes for high-class, "with it" crowds, but an uncool Big Bad Wolf keeps intruding on their act with his "corny horn" and uses it to blow down their nightclubs when they throw him out - until they are playing in their brick club and the Wolf tries a more drastic, explosive method for destroying the "House of Bricks".

Pigs are pretty lame, too
22 June 2006 | by killersaxSee all my reviews

The pigs play better than the wolf, but no more hip. They're mostly just vamping on a simple boogie that sounds a lot like "Rock Around the Clock" (And Stan Freberg's inability to find the right pitch is downright painful--way worse than the wolf.)Considering this was made the year Miles released "Kind of Blue," (a year after Bird died.) and considering the really adventurous stuff Shorty Rogers was doing for Stan Kenton around this time, I have to think Warner Bros. dumbed it down musically to what they thought the Lawrence-Welk/Liberace-listening public would like.

For a cartoon that really does something with music, how about "The Rabbit of Seville"?
