Cartoon Production Information:

The wolf introduces the Three Little Pigs story very much like Deems Taylor in "Fantasia."

In September of 1943, beginning with A Feud There Was, Warner Bros. began re-releasing select color cartoons in their Blue Ribbon program. Typically the Blue Ribbon reissues received new opening sequences with Blue Ribbon title cards and standardized music. Cartoon production credits were also removed. Between ten and fifteen cartoons were released in any given year, with cartoons coming from as far back as 1935. The reissues continued until the close of the studio in the 1960's.

All Blue Ribbon cartoons were released as "Merrie Melodie" cartoons regardless of the original series. The first "Looney Tunes" short to be included in the Blue Ribbon series was The Hep Cat, which was added in 1949. The only current prints of many of these cartoons are the Blue Ribbon releases, although restoration of these cartoons with original elements and titles is always ongoing.

Traditional, Hand-drawn Animation.

The body of this cartoon has no dialog. But the music is captivating. All the action is choreographed to Brahm's pieces, and very well done. This cartoon motivated me to research the Hungarian Dances. Turns out my parents had some old 10"...  (read more)

One of Friz's best musicals. It's an outrage that it lost the Oscar to Disney's "The Fuhrer's Face".
