| "You're not just whistling Dixie, brother!"
Fun Sylvester short directed by Friz Freleng. A little grandma mouse is reading her granddaughter mouse, Teeny, the story of Little Red Riding Hood. But since this is the mouse version of that tale, naturally the wolf is replaced by Sylvester the cat. Sylvester gets more than he bargained for, not just from Teeny, but from bulldog Hector as well. Lots of funny gags in this one. As another reviewer mentioned, these old parodies of fairy tales were usually very good. Lively music from Carl Stalling. Great voice work from Mel Blanc and Bea Benaderet. Blanc's voice for Teeny is pretty similar to his voice for Tweety. The animation is beautiful with rich colors and well-drawn characters and backgrounds. The light blue eyes on Teeny are a nice touch. I also love Teeny's bed being a matchbox. The little things like that are common in cartoons of the time involving mice (Tom & Jerry especially) but I never get tired of it. Anyway, it's not one of the best Sylvester cartoons but it is an enjoyable one.
