  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

They look really surprised to be in a movie.

Hoodwinked is an All CGI Cartoon movie released in 2005 that parodies the Little Red Riding Hood fairy tale. Possibly inspired by Shrek, the movie is an Urban Fantasy retelling, using a Rashomon-style interrogation set-up to tell the story, with Alternate Character Interpretation for all of the tale's characters.

The movie starts with the police arresting everybody at Granny's House — the Wolf, the Woodsman, Granny, and even Red Riding Hood — and interrogating them separately to find out what happened. Each then narrates events as he or she saw them happen.

A sequel titled Hoodwinked Too: Hood Versus Evil, in which the Wolf and Red Riding Hood team up to rescue Hansel and Gretel, was released in April 2011 after several years in Development Hell.


The original movie contains examples of:

  • Adaptation Expansion
  • All-Star Cast
  • Alternative Foreign Theme Song: Has its own Japanese theme song.
  • Anything But That: "Not prison! Not for a cute little bunny rabbit!"
  • Aside Glance: Wolf, after Twitchy's declaration that he doesn't drink coffee.
    • Also Red, when Jabeth denies having spoken normally at one point.
    • Also Twitchy gives the camera a pleased look when he hears his voice played back at quarter-speed on a recorder
  • Avoid the Dreaded G Rating: A writer for Focus on the Family's Plugged In magazine said the film could have squeaked by with a "G" rating. Let me reiterate that: Focus on the Family said the content rating on a movie was too strict.
  • Badass Grandma: Granny. She fights in cage matches, fer cryin' out loud.
    • And was the champion!
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Who would ever suspect little Boingo?
  • Big Eater: The Three Little Pigs, who consume a majority of the evidence.
  • Blinding Camera Flash: Happens accidentally.
  • Bound and Gagged: First Granny (She wound up tangled in her own parachute's cords) and later Red (as a prisoner of Boingo.)
  • Brick Joke: The first part of the movie, when the four protagonists tell their sides of the story, is essentially a long succession of these. Little details that seem bizarre or out-of-place are eventually shown in their full context.
  • Bring It: During the fight scene in the villain's lair, the villain does the "bring it" gesture. With his ear.
    • Of course, there's also Grandma's line at the end: "Bring it, honey."
  • Caffeine Bullet Time: used by Twitchy at one point.
  • Chekhov's Gun: Coffee.
  • Completely Missing the Point:

"I know. The song was catchy, but the choreography was terrible."

 Boingo: I'm gonna need a lot of real estate down the mountain, so I've gotta blow the competition away. Oh, and that's not a metaphor. We've literally got to blow them away. OK?

Red: Yeah, I got it.

 Red: Huh, what's this?

Granny: Oh, it says "Worlds Greatest Grandma."

Red: Grandma, I can read. It says "Battle of the Iron Cage Gladiators."

Granny: Now, dear, if there are two things I don't do, it's lie, and play extreme sports.

 Goodie Bandit: And Keith!... Darnit, change your name. Please? That's not scary, and I'm embarrassed to say it. "Boris." Try that. *Keith storms off* Keith, you know. Oh... watch out for Keith!

The sequel contains examples of:

  • Half-Dressed Cartoon Animal: Wolf gets retconned into wearing a pair of jeans, so as to make Twitchy be the source of "not wearing any pants" jokes.
  • Instant Knots: Red's belt, particularly in the opening.
  • Laser Hallway: Part of Granny's escape, complete with flour being used to reveal the beams and the acrobatic bypass of the lasers.
  • Laughably Evil: Hansel and Gretel, yes they're Complete Monsters, but they're so ridiculously over-the-top about being evil that it's NOT to laugh at them
  • Medium Awareness:

 Boingo: (deep raspy voice) Hello, Clarice.

Red: Who's Clarice?

Boingo: (normal voice) The cleaning lady. You just missed her.

 Granny: Wolf, you think you can handle a bike like this?

Wolf: Sure, l think l could if l had to. I went through my bad boy phase. Road a bike, greased my hair back, lived over Richie Cunningham's garage, water-skied over a shark tank. Those were some happy days.

 Gretel: You've been hoodwinked, too!
