The Wolf in this photoplay is NOT fictitious. Any similarity between this Wolf and that (*!!*%) jerk Hitler is purely intentional! noteBlitz Wolf is a 1942 MGM Cartoon, the very first directed by Tex Avery in his long tenure there. It has the distinction of being the very first direct anti-German Wartime Cartoon made during the 1940s, and it pulls no punches when it comes to satirizing deh fuehrer. The plot of the short is a parody of Walt Disney's Three Little Pigs short, altered into a World War II context.The short was nominated for an Academy Award, and was a runner-up on The 50 Greatest Cartoons list.Surprisingly, this short is also one of the few Tex Avery MGM Cartoons to have seen a DVD release, making it onto the Warner Bros. Academy Awards Animation Collection. It is also due for a Blu-Ray release as an extra, along with other Avery MGM shorts, as part of Looney Tunes Platinum Collection Vol. 2.
