The Bear's Tale
An early Tex Avery fairy-tale cartoon. I find this cartoon a good attempt at having most of the story's jokes based on narrative break-downs. The papa bear, of course, was my favorite. That hearty laugh (supplied by Avery himself) really knows how to make me laugh, as well as the line, "I know there's no robber! There's just a little girl asleep up there. I read this story last week in Reader's Digest!" The below gag, I heard, has been used in a lot of Benny Hill episodes.
So what does Red Riding Hood have that Goldilocks hasn't?
