She's Red Hot...

First appearing in Tex Avery's 1943 Red Hot Riding Hood this Red appeared as the sultry parallel to the overdone image of Little Red Riding Hood. Red drives the now debonair big bad wolf wild with a her beauty. Her cartoon is still one of Avery's most popular and it inspired several follow ups  such as Swing Shift Cinderalla in 1945.

This beauty never appeared with the same name in any of her roles, but her image and influence is undeniably consistent.
