No other classic cartoon director was as visually inventive as Tex Avery, who could come up with a visual pun for just about anything. He was also able to take a joke far past the point where most other directors would’ve left it and vary it just enough to keep it hilarious. After a brief stint at Warner Bros., where he contributed greatly to the development of Bugs Bunny in A Wild Hare, he ended up at MGM directing the Droopy cartoons as well as a bunch of toons starring the nearly forgotten Screwy Squirrel. And also the trio of modernized fairy tales that perhaps stand as his finest legacy – Swing Shift Cinderella, Little Rural Riding Hood, and the one that started it all it, Red Hot Riding Hood. From breaking the fourth wall by having the characters demand a new version of the story to the sexed up Riding Hood as a burlesque dancer to the depiction of the wolf as a Hollywood womanizer to the manhunting grandma, this is the risque side of Avery turned up to eleven, and it is awesome.
