When you think of Little Red Riding Hood, what is the first thing that comes to mind?
Other than the obvious Red cape or the wolf, what do you think of?
The first thing I think of when I hear Little Red Riding Hood is "What big eyes you have...."
Well, if you had asked that a year ago, I would have had to think about that.
Now...I'm thinking of the new Movie, "Red Riding Hood", being released in March, 2011.
The Movie supports a great cast....Amanda Seyfried, Gary Oldman, and a many other great upcoming actors.
Normally, this is not one of the movies that I would be interested in, as it looks a bit "Teenagerish" for me, but I am considering his one!
On another note, it makes me think of all the individuals in the world that prey on the weakness of others.
Whether it be Big Corporations, Internet Scammers, or even the School Bully, there are a lot of "Little Red Riding Hoods", as well as a lot of "Wolfs" (er..."Wolverines")!
Thanks for giving me something to think about and discuss! Good Question!
When I was a kid the book I read talks about the wolf eating the grandmother and then dressing up like her in hopes of eating Little Red Riding Hood. Eventually a woodsman cuts open the wolf and releases her.
Looking back there were several "children's stories" or "fairlytales" that most parents would not want to tell their children in this day and age. In the original story of The 3 Little Pigs, the first two pigs got eaten because they built their homes out of straw and sticks...etc In the new version the first two escape and end up staying with the 3rd pig in his house of brick.
This link covers the origins of some the most famous fairytales and most of them are gruesome but interesting non-the-less.

The Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs song.

The first thing is: What is a little girl doing running around the woods in a bright ass red cape!!!
What always comes to mind is the Big Bad Wolf in Grandma's clothes...
a hooded cape or shawl, not a wolf, a girl, or a grandmother or a basket...just that red cape
I don't recall if they ever said so in the story, but I wonder what exactly did Red have in that picnic basket.
Stalingrad, 1942. Winter. The Red Army being chased through Russia by invading evil forces since the summer of 1941.
Suddenly General Tchuikov and his red men give the invaders a bear hug, holding the enemy so close as to immobilize them till help in the form of a brutally cold winter and the surrounding russian forces bring the wolf to capitulation.
...and the obvious sexual overtones, and the Wolf cross dressing...? Hmm.... I guess that I still think of a hot babe, running from a potential suitor. That's what the story really is about, no? No?! Ok, let me think... I guess I think about what is really under that hood/parka thing. I give up...
That song by Sam the Sham and the Pharoahs - Hey, there, little red riding hood. You sure are looking good. etc.
The fact that little innocent couldn't recognize her grandmother.
That song from way back in the day..."Little Red Riding Hood, you sure are looking good, you're everything a big, bad wolf could want....owwwwwwwwwwwwww...."
I always think of the wolf, the best part of the story. The scary mysterous, wolf.
innocence, fragile, but intelligent. wonder how a child of her age could go all by herself into the woods. amazing!
I think of the McCoy cookie jar designed in her image.
Thinking of Red Riding hood i got image of a hopping girl.
Her innocence. Because of that she managed to venture far into the woods without the thought that some bad elements were there lurking ready to do their dirty tricks. It's amazing how children can be so innocent and full of trust.
The first question I asked when I heard the story was "Do wolfs talk?".
TRUST! I always think of this story the same way. It teaches us that there is evil out there and we should wise up or it could all be over very quickly. Not really a tale for children, I fear.
My daughter, who is 2, and how I would do anything to protect her. That big, bad wolf represents anything from sexual predators to the flu as far as this dad's concerned.
hmmmm does she have red pumps and gloves to go with that cape? I wonder where she bought it?
I think Lil Red Riding Hood is a perfect example of why your mother told you to never talk to strangers. Hood knew that she should not talk to the wolf but when he persisted she cave in and went with it. Things like this never turn out good when you gut is telling you no and you ignore it..listen to your gut! WB
I think of the movie that's coming out. I seriously can't wait to watch it!
darkness .. the darkness that is apart of the tale ;Little red riding hood.
