    Description

    Little Rural Riding Hood (MGM, 1949). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    This classic 1949 animated short was directed by the legendary Tex Avery and is a remake of sorts of his previous cartoons, 1943's Red Hot Riding Hood and 1945's Swing Shift Cinderella. Avery, perhaps more than any other person in animation, perfected the art of the gag cartoon. This short revolves around one of Avery's greatest characters, the Wolf, and this one went to extremes to top its predecessors with explosive gag variations on the same theme. The Wolf is so aroused by the Girl's sexy performance in the nightclub scene that he distractedly eats his hands, pounds himself on the head with a sledgehammer, devours part of the table and on and on! Each step, Avery tops one gag with another. The Red Riding Hood cartoons were to become something of a sensation and MGM claimed that they were the most successful short subjects in the company's history. This cartoon was voted the 23rd greatest cartoon in a 1994 poll. This very scarce one sheet has had approximately 1/2" of border replaced around the poster affecting none of the copyright information. The professional restoration has addressed fold touchup as well. The colors on the poster are as bright as can be and the poster displays beautifully. Fine+ on Linen.
