Little Red Riding Hood Up-to-date

Don't trust cross-dressing canines with your dirty linen says this 1945 soap powder advert.

Advert 1945 2 mins


A man in wolf's clothing attempts to get the washing done with boiling pots and a scrubbing board - until Little Red Riding Hood shows the hairy interloper that Rinso powder is the best cure for washday blues. This squeaky-clean 'updated' version of the children's fable replaces all the nasty bits with product placement - far more suitable for young and impressionable viewers.
