The three little pigs of storybook fame are transmogrified into a hopping, bopping jazz piano-drums-guitar trio in the Stan Freberg-narrated 1957 cartoon short The Three Little Bops.

The Big Bad Wolf just wants to jam with them on his trumpet, but the pigs can't stand his terrible "corny horn" playing, so they give him the boot. The angry wolf blows down the clubs they play in, that is, until the pigs play the House of Bricks. The wolf blows himself up trying to destroy the club, but his ghost comes back from Hell with new-found talent, or as one of the pigs puts it, "The Big Bad Wolf, he learned the rule! You gotta get hot to play real cool!"

He joins the band and they become the The Three Little Bops Plus One.
