YMMV / Red Hot Riding Hood

  • Accidental Aesop: Sexual harassment isn't any more fun for men than it is for women. See Values Resonance below.
  • Best Known for the Fanservice: It's a very funny cartoon for sure, but we all know the real reason why it's such a popular short.
  • Crowning Moment of Funny: Red yelling "NOOO!" after pretending to be flattered by Wolfie's promises comes to mind though.
  • Fan Nickname: Red for the eponymous showgirl, both for her hairstyle and her red dress in this short. Many years later, the Tom and Jerry direct to video films that she stars in officially named her Red.
  • Memetic Mutation: The Wolf's exaggerated reaction to seeing Red Hot Riding Hood has been referenced constantly, from The Mask to The Critic.
  • Values Resonance: Rare for an Avery cartoon. Red, while obviously drawn to be a sex symbol, is shown to be capable of holding her own and gets away from the wolf on her own, and the wolf, while relatable to the kind of horndog men who enjoyed these cartoons in the 40s, ends up being the butt of the overall joke.
