Wolf Hounded

A bandaged Loopy De Loop recounts the story of Little Red Riding Hood, in his own words… with him as the good, noble wolf who tries to get back Red’s basket of cookies from those juvenile delinquents: the three little pigs and return them to their rightful owner, namely Grandma.

I'm tempted to give this an extra half star, as it was Loopy's first appearance, but for reasons which will become apparent soon, I thought I'd best leave it at...

The first short starring Hanna-Barbera's only theatrical character Loopy De Loop: "Zee good wolf," whose attempts at good deeds were always misconstrued by others.

When UPA ended their relationship with Columbia Pictures in 1959, it left the distributor without an animation studio to make theatrical shorts. Enter Hanna-Barbera, who stepped in with their Loopy De Loop series. The series would last until 1965, totally 48 short cartoons.

These days, Loopy De Loop’s appearances both on television and elsewhere, have gone the way of many theatrical cartoons; becoming haphazard at best, but more usually non-existent.
