Little Red Rodent Hood

Little Red Rodent Hood is a 1951 Warner Bros. Merrie Melodies animated short directed by Friz Freleng. The short was released on May 3, 1951, and stars Sylvester the Cat in a spoof of "Little Red Riding Hood".


A grandmother mouse is telling her grandson a bedtime story, and so tells of Little Red Riding Hood (with the mouse as Riding Hood), and his visit to Grandma's House, unaware that the wolf (Sylvester) is watching him. He takes a shortcut to Grandma's, only to find four others already there, who he forces out. Red comes along, and he speaks his cue line, ("The better to eat you with") starting the chase.
