MMC! was lucky enough to see Kier-La Janisse’s latest Saturday Morning All-You-Can-Eat Cartoon Party and the best of the program was Jerry Lieberman’s Huff ‘n Puff, an anti-smoking PSA for the American Cancer Society that riffs on the story of the Three Little Pigs with some strange gallows humour. We could only assume that the Big Bad Wolf died just after the short ended. The short seems to have been part of a larger campaign that included an illustrated story offered as a pamphlet. (If anyone knows the year this animated short was produced or released, I’d appreciate the info!)
PLUS! – an honourable mention to the second best item on the program, the intro credits to the 1975-1976 Saturday morning cartoon, Return to the Planet of the Apes. As a devoted Venture Bros. fan, the graphics and music to this sequence is enthralling.
