Story Summary

Little Red Riding Hood, sort of ... In a plot as skillfully orchestrated as a Marx Brothers movie, Granny rescues and befriends a wolf, but she has to hide the wolf in the closet when her granddaughter, Scarlet, comes bearing a basket of goodies, then must hide Scarlet under the table when the pesky woodcutter shows up. But when the woodcutter hears a noise in the bedroom, Granny says is her sick granddaughter ... well, you get the picture.
