'''''The Three Little Pigs''''' was a landmark [[AnimatedFilms animated short film]] released on [[TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation May 27, 1933]]. It was produced by WaltDisney (though distributed through United Artists). Based on the [[Literature/ThreeLittlePigs fairy tale of the same name]], ''Three Little Pigs'' won the 1934 [[UsefulNotes/AcademyAward Academy Award for Best Short Subject: Cartoons]]. In addition to critical acclaim, the cartoon was a smash hit, so much that it was still running in theaters months after its debut, and became Disney's biggest financial success. To this day, it remains the single-most successful animated short ever made.

** The comics also frequently guest star [[SongOfTheSouth Br'er Bear]], usually as a foil to Zeke. In these stories, B'rer Bear is generally portrayed as [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation more of a good guy]] than he was in ''SongOfTheSouth,'' even being friendly with the pigs and Li'l Wolf -- although he's still stupid and violent, with Zeke as the most frequent target for his violent tantrums. [[note]] In fact, Br'er Bear in these comics is notable as one of the only people in a Disney comic who could shoot at someone with a shotgun ''[[ShotInTheAss and actually hit him]]''. Zeke always survived being shot, though.[[/note]] Br'er Fox and Br'er Rabbit also make sporadic appearances, with their original characterizations more or less intact.

* ShapeshiftingExcludesClothing: The Big Bad Wolf on two legs becomes enraged at not being able to enter the brick house of the third little pig. In a {{VillainousBreakdown}}, {{Animorphism}} kicks in. Gloves and his hat fly off, and desperate breaths to blow the brick house down break his suspenders. Ultimately, he steps out of his pants, completely naked, and acting fully like a wild four-legged wolf for the rest of the cartoon.

A few follow up shorts were made in the following years, but none of them ever matched the original in popularity. The characters also made appearances in other Disney media, including many comic books. Also of note is the Pigs appearing in a 1963 non-Disney feature, "Cri-Cri el Grillito Cantor" (Chi-Chi, the Singing Cricket). [[https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=bncUt6FibVk See it here.]]
