Saturday Morning Cartoons: “Red Hot Riding Hood” and “Technological Threat”

Red Hot Riding Hood: A film censored multiple times (the original ending is thought to be lost) this film is a classic that many people have admired. Fans of Jim Carrey’s The Mask may find the club scene familiar. (7:13 minutes)

Technological Threat: One of many films that references Avery’s wild takes and over the top humour, not to mention his wolf character. Bill Kroyer and his team combined computer animation and traditional animation in this Oscar nominated short. (4:57 minutes)

René Walling is a fan of SF, animation and comics, this has led him to co-chair Anticipation, the 2009 Worldcon, be involved with fps magazine for more than a decade, write reviews of francophone short fiction for The Portal, and start Nanopress, a Canadian small press. He looks forward to living on Mars where he would benefit from having more than 24 hours in a day.

The humanized wolf character from The Tenth Kingdom ends up wearing a pin-striped suit in what I'm pretty sure is a homage to RHRH, too.

I don't think I ever laughed at a Tex Avery cartoon.
