A spoof of the classic Little Red Riding Hood theme, this tale features a fearless young girl Emily, who is perhaps a little too preoccupied with table manners. She is happily skipping through the forest when a fierce tiger demands a piece of her seven-layer chocolate cake with triple fudge icing. But instead of saying please, he bares his teeth and waves his claws. Emily is outraged and, armed with her good witch wand and the magic word "Ooo-cha!, " she turns him into a tiger lily. Other rude, wild animals that approach her fare no better.

On the other side of the Wild, Wild Forest is Great Granny Fanny's house. Arriving with an entire bouquet of wildflowers, all acquired in the above-mentioned fashion, Emily discovers the Three Little Pigs have captured and tied up her Granny, for they too are out to capture Emily's basket of goodies. Have no fear, for resourceful Emily sends them packing, pursued by the newly released (Aaachoo!) gaggle of wild, hungry beasts.
