SYNOPSIS: Cooter is a crazy coyote who uses every trick in the book to snatch Little Red's saddlebags full of fried chicken, collard greens and pecan pie that she's taking to her sick Granny. Along the way, he meets Mrs. Mockingbird who won't stand for any nonsense, and puts him in his place. But Cooter doesn't give up easily and continues on his way to Red's granny's house where there is a hilarious confrontation. He's outsmarted by Little Red and her granny, with the marginal help of Sheriff Matt A. Dillo. Cooter leads them on a raucous chase around Granny's house until he is stopped by a huge cactus patch. Little Red feels so sorry for poor Cooter that she ends up inviting him to their picnic. An off-beat, quirky Texas-style re-telling of the Little Red Riding Hood story, with Ms. Chukran's signature twists. Little Red is a young, feisty female (who wears red boots), the hapless villain is a crazy coyote named Cooter and then there's Granny Cat and Sheriff Matt A. Dillo. Not to mention the talking horse, Horace.
