Indexer Notes

Pages consist of 1-3 panels each.

The coloring of Li'l Bad Wolf's and Zeke's clothing (top hats and suspendered pants) is reversed from the Disney comics norm of red and blue, respectively. In this story Zeke wears red, and Li'l Wolf wears blue. Though Li'l Wolf is wearing his normal red threads on the cover (...to match his firefighter's hat?). Brer Bear's clothing (red hat and green jacket) are colored as usual.

The Three Little Pigs do not figure into Zeke's meal plans for this outing.
