Cartoon Production Information:

Generally considered to have released on January 04, 1944, new evidence developed by Thad Komorowski suggests this short began screening in theaters as early as the date indicated. For more information, see Thad's Blog.

The voice of Red Riding Hood is an impersonation of raucous radio comedienne Cass Daley.

This short marked the first time Mel Blanc receives an on-screen voice credit.

The complete lyrics to "The Five O'clock Whistle" (composed by Josef Myrow, Kim Gannon and Gene Irwin, and performed by Little Red Riding Hood):
The five o'clock whistle's on the blink,
The whistle won't blow and whadd'ya think?
My pop is still in the factory,
'Cause he don't know what time it happens to be!

The five o'clock whistle didn't blow,
The whistle is broke and whadda'ya know?
If somebody don't find out what's wrong,
Oh, my pop'll be workin' all night long!

Oh! Who's gonna fix the whistle?
Won't somebody fix the whistle?
Oh! Who's gonna fix the whistle?
So my poor old pop will know
It's time for him to stop!

Ya ought to hear what my mommy said,
When papa came home and sneaked into bed
And told her he worked till half past two
'Cause the five o'clock whistle never blew!

Traditional, Hand-drawn Animation.

There is something very strange about this story and the way it ends; I really wonder what the back-story is here...Do Mel and Chuck have an issue with a particular girl they need to work with and this is their revenge? Does Red portray an actual person or is...  (read more)

The video is NOT here - there is something in a language NOT english superimposed over the video box and when you try to play it it goes to a webpage from a non- english speaking country. Shame - I really wanted to watch...  (read more)

Old fashioned but excellent cartoon with the obnoxious teenaged girl eventually finding a negative outcome for her pestering. I can't get the song she sings ("The 5 O'clock whistle's on the blink....") out of my head. I would like to...  (read more)
