Status: Partially Found

Totally Twisted Fairy Tales is a set of four short films planned by Disney/Walt Disney TV Animation and MovieToons in the late 1990s that were meant to be new takes on classic fairy tales. Out of the four planned, only "Redux Riding Hood" and "The Three Pigs" were released and have been shown at several animation festival screenings, but "Redux Riding Hood" is the only short that can be found by the general public. "Jack in the Beanstalk" and an unnamed fourth short were unreleased. It's unknown if "Jack in the Beanstalk" was even finished.

According to Steve Moore, "The Three Pigs" places the pigs in a "Real World" parody episode. They live in a loft and take in a wolf as a roommate in an attempt to be contemporary, open-minded pigs. The wolf is played by Harvey Fierstein, and he swears he's a vegan but comes out as a carnivore later. It was directed and written by Darrell Rooney and has the running time of 20 minutes. Despite calling it "hilarious", Steve Moore reportedly doesn't have a copy, though Jerry Beck has said he will look for it, albeit all the way back in 2012.[1] Storyboard artist Barbara Dourmashkin has since uploaded a clip from the cartoon on her YouTube.
