    Three little pigs, fearful of the wolf, sell their houses of straw and sticks to Bugs. When the wolf blows them both down, Bugs gives him the works. Then Bugs and the wolf team up and get even with the pigs.
Best Moment:
    Bugs introduces the wolf to the Red Ridinghood story as a way to trap him. The best moment is when Granny says, "Land sakes, Wolfie, ain't ya gonna eat me?" and as he rushes her out the door she screams, "Can't a body get her shawl tied? Heavens to Betsy!"
