* In ''Loopy De Loop'', the wolf is a kind and helpful character who takes it on himself to give wolves a better name, and was [[NotEvilJustMisunderstood only trying to help Red Riding Hood and the three pigs]]. Unfortunately, his intentions are often misunderstood and he is constantly the victim of AmusingInjuries.

Added DiffLines:

* The Big Bad Wolf in ''The Big Bad Wolf and Me'' has fallen on hard times - no one believes in him anymore, and a little boy helps him get his confidence back.
* In ''Little Red Riding Hood Was Rotten!'', the Wolf is a vegetarian...most of the time. He claims to have mistaken Red and her grandmother, both self-absorbed {{Jerkass}}es, for apples.
* The Wolf decides to pull a HeelFaceTurn in ''Big Bad Wolf is Good'', only to be [[ReformedButRejected ostracized and distrusted by the other animals]]. He finally earns their trust when he rescues a missing duckling and returns it to its mother.


Added DiffLines:

* The Wolf in the Russian film ''Gray Wolf & Red Riding Hood'' is portrayed as a VillainousGlutton who devours numerous characters (including a doctor [[TheFarmerAndTheViper who fixed his teeth]]) over the course of the story until the people he ate revolt.

* [[Creator/DisneyChannel Disney Junior]]'s ''[[WesternAnimation/GoldieAndBear Goldie & Bear]]'' has the Big Bad Wolf, or "Big Bad," as a somewhat comic and goofy, bumbling villain who's trouble for the Three Little Pigs, Little Red Riding Hood and the two title characters. This may or may not be the same Disney Big Bad Wolf mentioned above.

* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Hoodwinked}}'', the Big Bad Wolf turns out to be an intelligent but bumbling IntrepidReporter and a MasterOfDisguise, modeled on [[{{Fletch}} Irwin Fletcher]]. As it turns out, he is neither trying to attack Red Puckett (who he thinks was the villain due to an eavesdropped conversation that has a poor reception) nor responsible for the goody thefts that cause the story's main conflict. He is actually a good guy who ends up helping Red catch the real villain in the end.

** Avery also pitted a BBW against a baby pig (modeled after Red Skelton's "Mean Widdle Kid" character) in ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K50DVM1tgrQ One Ham's Family]]''. The cartoon was set at Christmas, so the Wolf disguised himself as SantaClaus. The piglet eventually deals with the wolf himself and presents him as a fur coat to his parents.

When the Big Bad Wolf appears in works of fiction, there are usually some common themes included, such as his predation on [[WouldHurtAChild children]], pigs and innocent young women, his [[MasterOfDisguise knack for disguising himself]] (used to fool Little Red Riding Hood), and his [[BlowYouAway powerful lungs]] (used to destroy the two of the Three Little Pigs' houses). Adult-oriented fairytale retellings since the seventies or so have developed a tradition in which he is often either a werewolf or a reverse werewolf (a wolf who turns into a human). He's also been known to appear [[AWolfInSheepsClothing in sheep's clothing]].

** Tex Avery's first MGM cartoon ''[[WartimeCartoon Blitz Wolf]]'' cast the Big Bad Wolf in the role of Hitler. He also pitted a BBW against a baby pig (modeled after Red Skelton's "Mean Widdle Kid" character) in ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K50DVM1tgrQ One Ham's Family]]''.
