The film follows the adventures of Little Red Riding Hood (Maria Gracia) and Tom Thumb (Cesáreo Quezadas) and their friends, fighting against the wicked Queen Witch (Ofelia Guilmáin) and her band of monsters. The film starts at the meeting of the evil monsters in the castle in the Haunted Forest, heart of the Devil's dominion, during which the Vampire (Quintín Bulnes) accuses the big bad wolf (Manuel Valdés) and the ogre (José Elías Moreno) of betraying the Queen Witch (La Reina Bruja, renamed the Queen of Badness in the English dub[1]), who orders them to be executed. Their friend Stinky the Skunk (Santanón) escapes, however, and informs Little Red Riding Hood and Tom Thumb, who promise to help. Meanwhile, the Queen and her sister the Old Witch cast a terrible curse, turning villagers into monkeys and mice for trying to defy her magic. The rest of the story details the heroes' quest to conquer evil.[2][3]
