Red Riding Hood and her sisters run away from home to escape the Bad Baron

On their way to Grandma's cottage they meet Lupe - a hungry wolf!

They are rescued by Basil, the Baron's steward (who has become tired of being a villain and wants to be a hero instead)

Lupe escapes and reaches Grandma's cottage ahead of time, where he finds that Grandma shares his interest in food, and so they settle down to cooking together

When Red Riding Hood arrives, Lupe dresses in Grandma's clothes to try to trap her

But Basil comes to the rescue again and Lupe surrenders and promises to help dispose of the wicked Baron
