Little Rural Riding Hood

The last of Tex Avery's three takes on the 'Litle Red Riding Hood' story, this cartoon sees the introduction of two new characters: the country yokel wolf (conspicuously voiced by Pinto Colvig in his Goofy voice), and his equally unnatractive yokel love interest - the rural equivalent of Red from 'Red Hot Riding Hood'. The one difference here is that after spurning him, it turns out that Rural Riding Hood has been playing hard to get, and is about to surrender, when a telegram arrives from the Wolf's city cousin, telling him to stop wasting his time, and to come to the city, where he'll show him something else...

Arrive the wolf from the original RHRR in a limousine, and transports country wolf to a nightclub where Red does her show, and he has to continously restrain his country cousin, and various individual parts of his anatomy, until it becomes obvious that he's not ready for the city life, and city wolf takes him back to the country. But the story doesn't quite end there...
