Ain't We in Da Wrong Pitcher?

Little Red Riding Hood runs past a title card in Swing Shift Cinderella (1945)—then realises something. She stops the wolf chasing her in mid-air and they go back to read the card. Tex Avery’s name has somehow vanished, but that isn’t what they notice. They’re in the wrong picture.

The wolf shoves Red out of the cartoon for good, and goes after the prey in the title card.

Preston Blair, Ed Love and Ray Abrams are the animators, while Frank Graham plays the wolf and Sara Berner does her Bette Davis and Barbara Jo Allen (as Vera Vague) voices.


  1. Tex borrowing from Tex, but doing it faster than his time at Warners, when Red and Goldilocks were commenting on the actual story's progression and Bugs was reading off the title credits.

      Moral: if you're going to borrow material from someone, borrow from the best.
