The internet displays loads of documents that parody various tales and "Little Red Riding Hood" is one of the most commonly studied in France  -yet, many others are also worked on.

Here is the video of the 1931 version of Betty Boop Red Riding Hood :

 

"Fractured version" is part of a late 60s Rocky & Bullwinkle show :
