The Three Little Pigs was a landmark animated short film released on May 27, 1933. It was produced by Walt Disney (though distributed through United Artists). Based on the fairy tale of the same name, Three Little Pigs won the 1934 Academy Award for Best Short Subject: Cartoons. In addition to critical acclaim, the cartoon was a smash hit, so much that it was still running in theaters months after its debut, and became Disney's biggest financial success. To this day, it remains the single-most successful animated short ever made.

Animator Chuck Jones said, "That was the first time that anybody ever brought characters to life [in an animated cartoon]. They were three characters who looked alike and acted differently".

The Three Little Pigs holds eleventh place on the The 50 Greatest Cartoons list. In 2007, it was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant".

Tropes Found in The Three Little Pigs

 "I'm a poor little sheep, with no place to sleep. Please open the door, and let me in!"

"Not by the hair of our chinny-chin-chin! You can't fool us with that old sheepskin!"

 Big Bad Wolf: By the hair on your chinny-chin-chin, I'll huff and I'll puff and I'll blow your house in!

  • A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing: The wolf pretends to be a orphaned sheep to get the first two pigs to open the door. It doesn't work.
