Shooting Adolf Full of Holes

The three little pigs (they're in the Army now) fire at Adolf Wolf, who ridicules them. "You didn't even touch me!" he yells. Wrong again, Adolf.

Tex Avery and his writers (Rich Hogan in this case) used the same sort of gag, usually involving drinking water and then the water flows out of holes in the body.

Ed Love, Preston Blair and Ray Abrams animated this cartoon. The Blitz Wolf was the first Avery cartoon released by MGM.


  1. Kind of an edgier variant on the gag involving the Edna May Oliver character from Freleng's "The Hardship of Miles Standish" from 1940, except that Edna May's rear is full of arrows when she does the "You didn't even touch me!" bit.
