Peter and the Wolf is a 1946 animated short based on the 1936 musical composition and fairy tale by Sergei Prokofiev, produced by Walt Disney and narrated by Sterling Holloway. It was originally released theatrically as a segment in Make Mine Music. Then re-issued as a short before the film of Fantasia. And then as a stand alone video in the 1990s.

The music tells the tale of a young Peter who decides to go hunting for the wolf that’s been prowling around the village. Along the way, he is joined by his friends Sasha the bird, Sonia the duck and Ivan the cat. All the fun comes to end, however, when the wolf makes an appearance
