Red Hot Riding Hood

Inspiration, Muses, Video

Wanted to share this classic Tex Avery Cartoon. I’m sure most of you have seen it but for those who haven’t Red Hot Riding Hood is a play on the timeless Little Red Riding Hood tale, the cartoon in it’s entirety even starts as a traditional retelling with all the characters breaking the fourth wall, complaining to the narrator to give the tale a fresher take. Can we agree that what they cooked up is just plain kick ass and awesome?! I mean Red is a super mix of Hollywood’s heavy hitter babes of that era, the wolf is hysterical, and Grandmother is clearly my role model.  RHRH is definitely in my short list of what influences me and my drawing style and I am still inspired every time I watch it.


*Wish I could embed my other Avery favorite, Red as Cinderella but since I can’t feel free to clicky click to take a gander.
