"Little Rural Riding Hood" (1949) — Essentially had a City Mouse/Country Mouse plot, with a hillbilly wolf and a sophisticated urban wolf.
An Indian MaidenExpy of Red also makes a cameo at the end of the Tex Avery short "Big Heel-Watha" (1944). Red is a prominent character in the 2010 direct-to-video film Tom and Jerry Meet Sherlock Holmes, while Wolfie and the two wolves from "Little Rural Riding Hood" make cameos.
Driven to Suicide: At the end, Wolfie vows never to so much as look at another woman again while at the night club. The curtains are pulled back and he sees Red on stage again. He then shoots himself in the head, and his ghost begins to do wild takes.
Grass Is Greener: Not as a song per se, but in "Little Rural Riding Hood" the hick wolf is happy to chase hick Red until he sees what he's missing in the city. And City Wolf, who seems coolly indifferent to City Red, flips for Rural Red!
Handy Feet: In "Little Rural Riding Hood" Red's country counterpart has really big feet and uses them to open and close the front door.
Hello, Nurse!: Wolfie's reaction to Red, and Granny's reaction to him.
Lady in Red: The singer/showgirl/stripper. She's even unofficially named Red, probably as much from her hair as her costume (which is white in several of the shorts). In any case her clothing certainly draws attention.
No Guy Wants to Be Chased: Once the tables are turned on Wolfie and Granny is lusting after him, he is terrified and does his best to run away, to no avail.
Not So Different: Through most of Little Rural Riding Hood, Wolfie's urbane cousin laments Wolfie's lack of self control around Red. He drives Wolfie back to the country, sees the country girl that was Wolfie's crush before Red, and... loses it exactly like Wolfie did over Red. Then Wolfie laments his cousin's lack of self control and sends him back to the city.
Pain-Powered Leap: Wolfie sticks Grandma in the butt with a needle and she jumps through the roof of her penthouse. The sticking is usually edited out when shown on television, so you just see Wolfie holding the needle and then it cuts straight to the jump.
Something Else Also Rises: The Wolf's reactions to Red. In fact, most of them (like steam erupting from out of the Wolf's collar as he tugs at it) were considered too obscene to be shown by the Hays Office censors (by today's standards, the steam thing isn't that risqué).
Take That: It wouldn't be the last time Tex took a jab at the cute and cuddly animation that was popular in the 1930s.
Wolverine Publicity: Due to Red's inherently appealing nature and popularity, her appearances on the Droopy DVD set are played up to where she is prominently displayed in much of the packaging, even though she only appears in two of the cartoons included on the set!
