Red, Wolf, Doors

There’s an eight-second scene in Little Rural Riding Hood where the country wolf is chasing after country Red creating a series of doors in a room in the process. Director Tex Avery had done multiple-door chases before, but not this quick and elaborate.

Here are some of the frames to show you the order of the instant doorways. Scott Bradley plays a hasty version (with a key change) of “The Bear Went Over the Mountain” during this scene. The horn players probably wanted to kill him afterward.

Grant Simmons, Walt Clinton, Mike Lah and Bobe Cannon are the credited animators, with Rich Hogan and Jack Cosgriff sharing the story credit.


  1. No matter how many times he saw this cartoon, my dad always laughed at the line, "Kissed a cow."

  2. Red was not the hottie that the usual Riding Hood in the Tex Avery cartoons, etc. was.
