Yet another variation on the Three Little Pigs theme, this time told as WW2 anti-German propaganda (the US had just entered the war), with the wolf as a thinly-disguised Hitler.
Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer's Leo, the Lion, doing 4 extra quick and short roars. Same background music of "Hold That Tiger" occurs as Tex Avery's Blitz Wolf (1942) and Rudolf Ising's Chips Off the Old Block (1942) start. 21 days (3 weeks) differ among their dates. Tex Avery's Blitz Wolf (1942) was first, Saturday, August 22nd, 1942 and Rudolf Ising's Chips Off the Old Block (1942), was second on Saturday, September 12th, 1942.
Open the door! Or I'll huff and I'll puff and I'll blow your house in!
First Pig: But Adolf, that would break our treaty. You're a good guy. Why, you hate war. You wouldn't go back on your word.
Adolf Wolf: Are you kidding?
Foreword: The Wolf in this photoplay is NOT fictitious. Any similarity between this Wolf and that (*!!*...%) jerk Hitler is purely intentional! P.S. The auto tires used in this photoplay are fictitious.
When this cartoon aired on TBS, the special end title card ("The End...of Adolf. If you'll buy a stamp or bond - We'll skin that skunk across the pond") was replaced by an ordinary title card used for MGM cartoons of the day.
