Synopsis by Hal Erickson
In the first of two sequels to Disney's Oscar-winning The Three Little Pigs, Little Red Riding Hood stops to visit the porcine heroes while on her way to deliver "cakes and wine" to her bedridden Grandma. Despite the dire warnings of Practical Pig, his carefree brothers Fifer and Fiddler offer to escort Red through a shortcut in the deep dark woods, where resides their old nemesis the Big Bad Wolf. Determined to make a meal of Red and the pigs, Big Bad disguises himself first as Goldilocks the Fairy Queen (with appropriate ballet slippers), and then as Grandma (who bears a marked resemblance to Jimmy Durante). Inevitably, Practical Pig must come to the rescue of both Red and his two foolish siblings. This cartoon reprises the signature tune from The Three Little Pigs, the imperishable "Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf?"
