Swing Shift Cinderella

This film starts with The Wolf chasing Red Riding Hood around (including across the titles), until they stop, read them, and realise that this is the wrong film. Wolf declares he'd like to meet this Cinderella, and shortly after abandons Red Riding Hood for the suburban home of Cinderella. She proves to be spectacular - a virtual copy of Red from 'Red Hot Riding Hood', and Wolf is instantly and constantly smitten.

Cinderella however calls on her fairy godmother, who is also a near copy of Granny in 'Red Hot'. This unattractive, elderly female takes a major shine to Wolf. He finally escapes to see Cinderella's show, but is caught and constantly restrained by the Godmother. Finally Cinderella has to escape before midnight to go back to her other job...
