Eighth Post-October 31, 2014

Find a cartoon online with “Little Red Riding Hood” as a theme and write a reflection on that cartoon.


                This cartoon covers the environmental issue of deforestation. It is both a political and social cartoon, since political issues are closely entwined with social issues. The cartoon takes place in in the part of the story where Little Red Riding Hood is journeying through the woods to her grandmother’s house to deliver cake and wine to her. Little Red Riding Hood’s journey through the woods is virtually nonexistent, because there are no woods. All of the trees have been cut down, and it is much easier for Red to find her way to her grandmother’s. This cartoon addresses a serious topic in a humorous way, which I enjoyed. By adding the element of a classic children’s tale to the cartoon, it captivates the audience and makes them think about the topic in a different light. Putting a subject such as deforestation and connecting it with a fairy tale makes people more likely to take a second glance at the cartoon and think about the issue.
