Trivia (3)

  • The story's (Three Little Pigs) plot is changed, and no other books of this name have the plot used here. The wolf in the real story or other books of this title does not have the wolf making friends. This also becomes a running gag throughout the other Fairy Tales and stories in the series.

  • Right before the super readers approach Humpty Dumpty, Little Red Riding Hood's skin is darker than it should. Little Red Riding Hood's skin is supposed to be pale, but in the said scene her skin his light brown. This is subverted with Princess Pea, in fact, her skin is lighter than Red's skin in the scene, but in all other scenes, her skin is brown. So basically in the scene, Red's skin is brown instead of white, and Princess Pea's skin is tan instead of brown. Whyatt and Pig's skin remain intact. This error was never seen again.

  • Immediately before jumping to get the frog out of the tree, Red stretches her quad muscles in preparation.¬†¬†Being one who the series later reveals plays soccer for fun, it makes sense from a story standpoint that she would know to do this.

Allusions (3)

  • Bionic Man Sound Effect When Red jumps on the bump to rescue the frog, the sound effect from Bionic Man plays.

  • The Beatles Some scenes in this episode have certain things that are based on the rock band, The Beatles, the 4-person walk and the 4 heads in a square-like position.
