Cartoon Summary:


This is the story of Goldilocks and the three black bears, who are jazz musicians, mixed with Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf. Three black bears- the king-size bear, the middle-size bear, and the wee little bear- are a hot swing trio who hold a jam session. When their instruments get too hot (Little Bear on bass, Middle Bear on piano, Big Bear on horn), they decide to take a walk to let them cool. Meanwhile, the Big Bad Wolf comes along. Red is busy working at Lockheed as a riveter, The wolf spots sexy Goldilocks entering the bears' place and starts chasing "Goldie" as the bears return. Thinking that they're jitterbugging, they pick up their instruments and "give out." Goldie gets into the swing, bouncing the Big Bad Wolf all over the dance floor and wearing him out. The wolf tries to escape from the dance-crazed Goldie, but Goldie has boarded up the doors and windows. Later, the wolf rests at Grandma's house just as Red Riding Hood shows up. Red is disappointed that the wolf isn't chasing her, but he shows her his red, burning feet. The bears show up and start "jamming." Grandma, hiding in the closet, forces the wolf to jitterbug with her.

Comments By:
Definitely one of my favorite cartoons ever. I love the musical score- especially the boogie-woogie by the narrator and bears' swing at the end. Like Coal Black, Red Hot Riding Hood and Tin Pan Alley Cats I wish I could get the soundtrack to listen to....  (read more)

Goldilocks And The Jivin' Bears

Comments By:
Unlike earlier Freleng black-oriented musicals, the censorship of this one's inexplicable. The bears may talk like blacks--but they're BEARS, for cryin' out loud!
Nifty predecessor to "The Three...  (read more)
