Looney TV: Little Red Riding Rabbit (1944)

Bugs Bunny crosses paths with a rather obnoxious parody of a fairy tale heroine in "Little Red Riding Rabbit". This 1944 Friz Freleng entry is significant in that this is the first time Mel Blanc is credited for his work, although he's also joined by Billy Bletcher and Jack Benny Program castmate Bea Benaderet, who voices Red, depicted as a 40's bobby-soxer.

Pardon the obvious pun, but this bugged the bejabbers out of me. Satire is one thing, but this was way too mean to be that.

Rating: B--.
