The Pig Who Cried Werewolf is a Halloween short film directed by Gary Trousdale. It was released on October 4, 2011 (for a limited time) exclusively on the Nintendo Video service on Nintendo 3DS.

The Three Little Pigs find themselves in trouble when they ignore the warning signs of Big Bad Wolf, their new neighbor, moving in next door who takes on a ferocious form during a full moon.


The Three Little Pigs are named Heimlich (Sean Bishop), Dieter (Sean Bishop), and Horst (Cody Cameron) are heading home from the hospital where Heimlich got his leg hurt from spying on neighbors, like the Poor Lady and the Shoe and Jack and Jill (not to be confused with the outlaws Jack and Jill). When they arrived at home, Heimlich saw that there's a new neighbor: The Big Bad Wolf (Aron Warner). When the bag falls down, Heimlich, spying on Big Bad Wolf, saw that Big Bad Wolf has a box of knives, but Dieter and Horst didn't see it. Big Bad Wolf then buries the knives in the ground and goes into his house.

At night, the moon is full and Big Bad Wolf is turned into a lady named Chef (Sean Bishop). She is getting the knives, but when Heimlich almost drops the telescope, she can hear the noise. Heimlich was about to show Dieter and Horst that there's something going on the house. When Dieter looks at the house, he sees Big Bad Wolf saying hi to them, but Heimlich doesn't know that because when he looks, Chef played the knives and said, "Get the maniac." Dieter and Horst are going in that house and they get captured by Chef. When Chef gets in the house, a scared Heimlich is captured to her / Wolf's house. After he screams in terror, he sees Dieter and Horst having dinner. When Chef arrives in the room, she turns back into the Wolf and the Three Little Pigs don't know. He tells them to get out, but when he turns back into Chef, he gives chase and keeps changing back to Wolf and Chef as he chases the Three Little Pigs.

Voice cast


The short film was created as another Shrek-themed Halloween short film in 2011, also directed by Gary Trousdale. It was released on the short-lived Nintendo 3DS Video Service for a full year before finding a proper home video release in 2012.


The Pig Who Cried Werewolf received mostly positive reviews upon release. The reception was like this because of the small run-time and fun spooky vibes placed during the climax.
