"Big Bad Wolf Daddy" is the second episode of House of Mouse, originally aired on ABC on January 27, 2001.


Donald invites the Big Bad Wolf to perform at the House of Mouse.


Donald hires the Big Bad Wolf and The Three Little Pigs to perform a show at the club, which Mickey fears since the wolf destroyed the club the last time he performed. Under the advice of Ludwig Von Drake, the crew dismantle and hide all the doors so that when the Big Bad Wolf does show up, the doors won't invoke his natural instinct to huff and puff and blow the house down.

The gang prepares for the Big Bad Wolf's arrival and start showing Donald's Charmed Date in the meantime. However, things take an unexpected turn when the cartoon stops in the middle courtesy of The Censor Monkeys. As it turned out, they found the sequence that resulted in Donald ending up in a fortune teller booth too violent and order Mickey to edit the cartoon so that Donald wears a helmet while crashing through everything, and to also replace the accompanying music and sound-effects with comical audio. Mickey agrees and the cartoon resumes with the edits.

After the cartoon is finished, all the doors have been removed and hidden just as the Big Bad Wolf shows up. Things go smoothly, right up to when he performs his song, aptly-titled "Big Bad Wolf Daddy", but things almost fall apart during the Big Bad Wolf's solos, which cause many a guest to be blown away by the force of his playing, chief among them being Pocahontas with Meeko and the Colors of the Wind, Jiminy Cricket, and even Alice when her dress takes on its parachute form as she's blown away, flying right out the House of Mouse's front doors past a startled Max Goof.

After playing How to Be Groovy, Cool, and Fly, things seem like they will end well. But thanks to the Three Little Pigs when they get back in the cello case the Big Bad Wolf brought them in after revealing he has a "play or filet" contract with them, Donald ends up causing the Big Bad Wolf to blow the House of Mouse up once again, leaving Mickey to assign him the duty of cleaning the debris up since it was his fault for hiring the Big Bad Wolf in the first place, much to Donald's own annoyance at this karmic payback.

Episode introduction "Come on down to the hottest club in town: Disney's House of Mouse!"
Mickey introduction "And now, ladies and jungle men, toys and squirrels: it's Mickey Mouse!"



  • This is the first House of Mouse episode that does not end with an advertisement for the show's sponsor.
  • This is the only episode in which one of the featured cartoons (specifically, Donald's Charmed Date) is interrupted.
  • This is the first episode where the Censor Monkeys appear.
  • Big Bad Wolf Daddy's act is loosely based off a 1957 Looney Tunes cartoon short, Three Little Bops, also involving characters based on the Three Little Pigs performing jazz music and being joined by a wolf playing trumpet.
  • Big Bad Wolf Daddy's yellow zoot suit and wide-brimmed hat is a reference to the iconic outfit Jim Carrey wore in the 1994 film The Mask as the titular character. At one point in the film when going gaga over Tina Carlyle (Cameron Diaz), he whistles and howls as his green head morphs into a Tex Avery-esque wolf's head.
