"You've been hoodwinked, too!"

Hoodwinked Too! Hood vs. Evil is the 2011 sequel to the 2005 animated movie Hoodwinked!.

Now agents of the Happily Ever After Agency, Wolf, Granny, and Twitchy are assigned to rescue Hansel and Gretel from the evil witch, Verushka. Red has left the agency to train with the ancient Sisters of the Hood who guard the recipe of the legendary Super Truffle, said to make whoever eats it unstoppable. After learning that the truffle recipe has been stolen, Red learns that her Granny has been captured and is being forced to make the Super Truffles for Verushka. With her Granny in danger, Red rejoins the agency and must team-up with Wolf and Twitchy to rescue Granny, Hansel, and Gretel, and prevent the Super Truffles from falling into the wrong hands.

The film was originally set for a 2010 release date, but was delayed for over a year due to issues regarding the animation.


Hoodwinked Too! Hood vs. Evil provides examples of:

  • Animation Bump: A huge one from the first. Environments are bigger and less airless, movement is more fluid, and humans now have five fingers, among other things. Sadly, this causes the movie to lose the old-timey stop-motion look that gave the first movie enough charm to make up for its low quality, so it's not necessarily an improvement.
  • Anything but That!: "Not broccoli!"
  • As You Know: Verushka to Granny while explaining her Motive Rant.
    Granny: Why are you telling me all this? I was there.
  • Balloon Belly: Hansel and Gretel after the Batman Gambit.
  • Batman Gambit: Wolf tricks Hansel and Gretel into overdosing on supertruffles.
  • Berserk Button: Don't EVER call Red a little girl!
  • Bound and Gagged: Granny and Red at different and multiple parts of the movie. Later, Wolf and Twitchy after Hansel and Gretel subject them to gas that knocks them out cold in the elevator to try and get them out of the picture. Gretel was bound and gagged to fool Twitchy, Red, and Wolf. While Hansel was tied up, he was not gagged so that he could express with "words of gratitude."
  • Bring It: Outright invoked by Red to a troll.
  • Call-Back: At the end of the first movie, Wolf makes a one-off comment about cracking open The Three Little Pigs real estate scam. In the sequel, they come back for revenge in what would otherwise have been a Noodle Incident.
    Twitchy: What did you do to make them so mad?
  • Card-Carrying Villain: Hansel and Gretel. They spend the majority of the movie after their reveal telling everybody just how evil they are.
  • Consulting a Convicted Killer: More precisely a criminal mastermind, and doubles as a Parody to the Trope Codifier, Silence of the Lambs. Red and Wolf resort to take the insight of the first movie's villain Boingo in order to get a lead that'll help them find Granny.
  • Contrasting Sequel Antagonist: Hansel and Gretel are this to Boingo. While they and Boingo basically had the same evil plan, to sell goodies, they went about it in different ways. Boingo just wanted to destroy homes and businesses to expand his goodie empire while Hansel and Gretel planned to sell off the magic truffles to other villains and had world-domination plans. Another thing that sets them apart is their reveal as a Twist Villain. Boingo's reveal happened very late into the second act while Hansel and Gretel's true colors happened very early on to the point where you can hardly call them twist villains.
  • Copycat Cover: Either justified or not, the sequel's poster looks a lot like The The Goonies'
  • Demoted to Extra:
    • Kirk the Woodsman goes from one of the core four suspects of the original movie to only showing up sporadically here, though he does help Red and Wolf out a couple times.
    • Boingo, the Big Bad of the original movie, only shows up in one scene.
  • Disc-One Final Boss: Verushka turns out to only be a patsy for the real villains of the movie Hansel and Gretel.
  • Fat Bastard: Hansel and Gretel are pretty rotund. And then they overdose on supertruffles...
  • Fire-Forged Friends: Red and Wolf initially hate having to work with each other, but eventually grow to become partners and best friends as they work to solve the case.
  • For the Evulz: Hansel and Gretel. They even admit they have no other reason for doing what they do.
  • Funny Background Event: Several during the first scene of Red and Wolf walking through the city.
  • Giant Spider: One serves as a major threat during the climax.
  • Half-Dressed Cartoon Animal: From film 1, the Wolf gets retconned into wearing a pair of jeans, so as to make Twitchy be the source of "not wearing any pants" jokes. But the wolf still lacks any shoes.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Overdosing on fatty and sugary treats isn't a good idea.
  • Hope Spot:
    Japeth: I'm alive? I'm alive!!! (sings a happy song to the tune of "Dixie" and promptly falls into an open manhole)
  • Interface Spoiler: The opening credits mention every prominent character by name. This includes Boingo the bunny, the Big Bad of the original movie, spoiling his return here.
  • Knock Out Gas: When Wolf and Twitchy think they are taking Hansel and Gretel to safety, Hansel and Gretel put on gas masks while the vents in the elevator expel this type of gas, knocking out Wolf and Twitchy to get them out of the way of the evil plot.
  • Laser Hallway: Part of Granny's escape, complete with flour being used to reveal the beams and the acrobatic bypass of the lasers.
  • Laughably Evil: Hansel and Gretel are so ridiculously over-the-top about being evil that it's hard NOT to laugh at them
  • Leaning on the Fourth Wall:
    • Stating that people who blog about animated films need to get a life and Boingo saying movies are better than books especially sequels.
    • Twitchy enthuses about the visual effects when the pigs were attacking.
  • Obviously Evil: Hansel and Gretel when Granny finds them. It rears its ugly head when one says "Don't be suspicious... keep following us to the door..."
  • Oh, Crap!:
    • "Oh, schnitzel." This one carries over from the first film.
    • The headmaster of the Sisters of the Hood gets this reaction and says "muffins" as a curse word when Little Red Riding Hood asks how the Sisters of the Hood make the recipe for the Supertruffle invisible.

Did You Just Laugh At Me?

When his rhino henchman chuckled, the Giant calls the former out for merely laughing at the latter's response before smacking the poor guy like a pinball.

How well does it match the trope?
