Little Red Riding Hood was one of the Jatlag animations that I remember vividly from watching as a kid. And to this day I consider it one of their best. Animation-wise it is one of their best-looking, the character designs are swift and much more realistic-looking than Alice in Wonderland and the backgrounds are full of lovely colours. The music is catchy also, Made With Love is especially good but We're a Team comes very close. The story is always engaging with great positive messages of for example helping others(this was the animation also that taught me to beware of strangers, other than Disney's Snow White), and the writing doesn't give the impression that it was over-simplified. The characters right from the likable titular character, cute animals, the tender grandmother and the wolf while not really that scary is suitably mean. The voice acting is fine, far more consistent than for examples Alice in Wonderland and Sleeping Beauty. All in all, for me this is still one of Jetlag's best, cute, clever, lively and nicely animated. Not one of my absolute favourites, but definitely a standout in my re-visiting-low-budget-animation quest. 9/10 Bethany Cox
