Watch two half-hour animated films based on the much-loved rhymes written by Roald Dahl and illustrated by Quentin Blake.
The Big Bad Wolf acts as the narrator for the series in which the stories of Red Riding Hood meet Snow White as well as the Three Little Pigs. This is alongside him telling a tale in which Jack and the Bean Stalk is integrated alongside Cinderella. All of which may seem like odd tales to combine but they are but inspired by their darker source material, but not taken to the point many of us have seen in cartoons.
For while Little Red Riding Hood is a bit of a sadistic murder and the 7 dwarves have a gambling problem, you find a fine balance. One which also includes heads being cut off but also bouncing about like beach balls at a music festival. It really is hard to explain how ludicrous some of the stories are but, to some surprise, they all end in a bit of a twisted, but sweet, fashion.
