The Big Bad Wolf (1930s) - Classic Cartoon
Early 1930s cartoon from Ub Iwerks. Iwerks worked with Disney in the silent era, and was influential in the early design of Mickey Mouse. In the late 1920s, Iwerks struck out on his own, creating a Mickey-like character, Oswald The Lucky Rabbit and Flip The Frog.

By the time Castle got ahold of this film in the 1940s or 1950s, these shorts were already cheaply available, since they did not have the backing of a major Hollywood studio. Which is a shame, since the shorts, like this one, are certainly on the par with Disney or Warner shorts of the era.

This one, featuring Iwerks' elongated body style, is a pastiche of nursery rhymes; Little Boy Blue, Little Bo Peep, and The Big Bad Wolf. The short opens with a scarecrow prompting Little Boy Blue to blow his horn, causing a black sheep of Bo Peep to do the Charleston. The mischievious black sheep then gets a wolf mask to scare the white sheep, but runs across a real wolf. The BB Wolf then catches one of the sheep, and Bo Peep, Boy Blue, and the scarecrow run off to save it. Interestingly, the scarecrow does most of the work in this short.
