Red is an American animated character, created by Tex Avery, who appears in several MGM short films and Tom and Jerry movies. She is a fictional nightclub singer and dancer who is usually making all men in the room crazy, especially a Wolf character who - in vain- tries to seduce and chase her. Red debuted in Red Hot Riding Hood (1943), where she was originally a deviation of Little Red Riding Hood.
Despite only appearing in seven animated shorts from the Golden age of American animation era and being nothing but a foil for other male characters to have funny exaggarated reactions about she proved memorable enough to be revived in many Hanna-Barbera TV cartoon series from the 1990s on.
