'''''Totally Twisted Fairy Tales''''' was a set of four short/featurettes planned by Disney and MovieToons (although the first short "Redux Riding Hood" was a product of Walt Disney Television Animation) that were meant to be "Fractured Fairy Tale" takes on classic fairy tales. The idea behind it was that they would be making more adult shorts by combining Disney artists and high-quality writers and their takes on classic fairy tales. The shorts were as follows: "Redux Riding Hood" (based off of Red Riding Hood), "Three Little Pigs", "Jack in the Beanstalk" and a fourth cartoon that was never finalised.

The project ended up being a bit too weird for Disney, so only "Redux Riding Hood" and "Three Little Pigs" were ever released, as they were both shown to several animation festival showings but only  "Redux Riding Hood" later resurfaced online, being put up by Steve Moore on his blog. It's unknown if "Jack In the Beanstalk" was even finished, as very little info on the short has been made public.

Totally Twisted Fairy Tales is a set of four short films planned by Disney/Walt Disney TV Animation and MovieToons in the late 1990's 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.[1]
