The Big Bad Wolf is a Silly Symphony that was released on April 13, 1934. It is a sequel to The Three Little Pigs, that retells the story of Little Red Riding Hood with the addition of the pigs to the story.
Not taking the advice of Practical Pig ("There's danger in them woods. Be aware. The Big Bad Wolf is lurking there. Better to be safe than sorry. Short cuts are not always good. Take the long road round the forest while the Wolf is in the wood."), Little Red Riding Hood, escorted by Fiddler and Fifer, takes the short cut through the woods to Grandma's house. They end up encountering Goldilocks the Fairy Queen, who is soon revealed, thanks to a branch breaking, to be the Big Bad Wolf in disguise. Fiddler and Fifer run home, whilst Little Red Riding Hood escapes from the Wolf. The Big Bad Wolf, however, isn't giving up on getting dinner, and goes to Grandma's house, where he chases Grandma into the closet and gets in bed disguised as her. Little Red Riding Hood arrives and after the expected "what big eyes/nose/mouth you've got" spiel is terrified to see the Big Bad Wolf is posing as her grandmother. Fortunately, Fiddler and Fifer have managed to get Practical Pig and thus managed to beat the Wolf once more. As the cartoon ends, a reprise of "Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf" comes in.
