Wolf – 3 pigs

> I think this cartoon is a twisted version of the 3 Little Pigs.

characters / drawing / animated film

> It’s the poster of the animated film by Tex Avery in technicolor.

On this poster the characters are drawn. So this version is dated, a little old.

Nazi / king / soldier / dictator

> the wolf looks like a dictator . In fact / Actually he seems like Hitler because he’s wearing black leather boots, a hat, a moustache and a logo on his arm.

> I suppose this cartoon is an example of American propaganda to denounce Hitler’s politics / it’s a caricature / a satire / a parody.

> This document is aimed at entertaining the wives and kids of American soldiers. / … American soldiers’ wives and kids.

It’s supposed to make fun of the war. It’s on the Allie’s side.

  1. 201 BlitzWolf correction
    BlitzWolf correction
    Contrary to the original version, the new version is shocking.
    This version is more shocking than the old version.
    The original story takes place in the wood whereas the Tex Avery version is set during World War II.
    My funniest moment was/is when we see the wolf’s feet turn into a hot sausage.
    Fabien’s funniest moment was when the wolf dies.
    M’s favourite moment is when the pigs show the newspaper to the bombs.
    This video wants to show that Hitler is bad / ridiculous and the Americans are going to win the war. So it’s a political and propaganda message.
    This new version is more aimed at adults than at kids. The effect is funny, it makes us laugh but the subject is serious.

    It was directed in 1942 because it’s when the Americans joined the war.
