Looney TV: Pigs in a Polka (1943, 1948)

We all know the story of the Three Little Pigs. Shoot, both Disney & Warner Bros. have adapted it. In WB's case, it's been done multiple times.

WB's most famous adaptation would be the swinging "Three Little Bops", with Stan Freberg narrating. However, some years earlier, WB's then honcho, Leon Schlesinger, decided to do a satire on both the classic tale and Disney's "Fantasia" with "Pigs in a Polka".

The Blue Ribbon reissue was released 5 years after the original release, just in case anyone's keeping score at home.

Rating: B.
