Zeke Midas Wolf, more commonly known as the Big Bad Wolf, is a villainous anthropomorphic wolf of various Disney cartoons and comics who is the main antagonist of the Silly Symphonies short "The Three Little Pigs" and its sequels.

APPEARANCE

Zeke is a male anthropomorphic wolf with a plantigrade posture. He has black fur, a white muzzle, long arms and hind legs, white-colored hand palms and feet with claws, . He wears red wide trousers which are damaged and dirty and are held up by a pair of green suspenders; in the comics instead has a blue overalls and a red cylinder. He also wears white gloves and a blue, damaged old top hat on his head.

It's the classic "big bad wolf" fairy tale: evil and hungry is hunting unsuspecting prey like squirrels, Chip and Dale or The Three Little Pigs.

KIN

In the early stories were represented with their grandchildren, sometimes three wolf pups identical pestiferous as Huey, Dewey and Louie, but they were quickly replaced by a character featured in all: Mock, a werewolf like his father in appearance, but animated by feeling quite the opposite: friendly and polite, Mock was indeed a great friend of Pigs and in general the animals of the forest, and often helped them to take shelter from the clutches of the parent, much to the despair of the same old wolf that he wanted a fierce predator.

HISTORY

BBW2

Zeke tries to break into Practical Pig's home.

In "The Three Little Pigs", Zeke is first seen mouthwateringly observing Fifer and Fiddler Pig. He then attempts to catch the two pigs, but they both spot him in time and run off. Zeke chases down Fifer to his straw house and warns him that if he doesn't open the door, he will blow his house down. Fifer refuses and Zeke blows down his house until the house collapses, causing Fifer to run off to Fiddler's house. Zeke chases the pig down to the wooden house and pretends to give up, running off while disguising himself as a sheep. He then tries to convince the two pigs that he's merely a young sheep who wants someone to take care of him, but the pigs don't fall for his trick. Zeke throws off his disguise and blows down the wooden house. Fifer and Fiddler Pig then run off to the house of their brother, Practical Pig, while succesfully knocking Zeke in a tree and giving themselves a headstart. Once at the brick house, Practical Pig lets his brothers in and locks the door. Zeke disguises himself as a salesman and tries to enter the house of the third pig, but he also sees through the wolf's disguise and keeps him outside, while hitting him three times with the brush. Zeke, now infuriated, tries to blow down the Practical Pig's house, but the stone house remains intact. After a few more attempts to blow the house down while also causing his suspenders to break and his pants to fall down, Zeke tries to open the door but due to the lock he fails at doing so. The now naked wolf then tries to come up with a second plan and spots the chimney, jumping toward it while trying to make his way down. Meanwhile, Practical Pig sees how ashes from the chimney fall down and he fills up the boiling cauldron with turpentine. The wolf then drops down right into the cauldron and burns his lower. While screaming in pain, he jumps out of the chimney and runs off in the distance, leaving the pigs alone.

Zeke's second appearance was in the short "The Big Bad Wolf", where he tries to eat Red Riding Hood, her grandma and the Three Pigs. Unfortunately for Zeke, the pigs see through his fairy disguise and his attempt at catching them fails. When he goes to Red Riding Hood's house to eat her grandma, the old lady barely escapes from the fierce beast and locks herself into the closet. Zeke then dresses himself as the grandma, lies down in her bed and waits patiently for Red Riding Hood to arrive. Upon her arrival, she notices something different about her grandma and asks why her ears, eyes and mouth are much bigger than before. During the last question, Zeke attacks Red Riding Hood, who finds shelter with her grandma in the closet. Practical Pig and his brothers arrive just in time to stop the wolf, throwing hot pop corn down his pants. Once again, Zeke runs off with pop corn popping in his pants.

Lessons

Zeke tells his sons what the best parts of a pig are.

In "Three Little Wolves", Zeke is giving his three mischievous sons a lesson on the best parts of a pig to eat. Meanwhile, Practical Pig is building a Wolf Pacifier (patent not applied for), while Fifer and Fiddler Pig trick him by crying "Wolf" with the Wolf Alarm. Zeke Wolf dresses up as Bo Peep and tricks Fifer and Fiddler Pig into following his sons, who are dressed up as the lost sheep, and captures them. When they blow the Wolf Alarm, Practical Pig passes it off as another trick. Fifer and Fiddler trick Zeke Wolf into blowing it, which finally summons Practical, who brings along his Wolf Pacifier. He tricks Zeke into running into the Wolf Pacifier, which beats Zeke, then tars and feathers him, and finally fires him out of a cannon, while his sons rush to catch him.

In "The Practical Pig", Zeke dresses up as a mermaid to trick Fiddler and Fifer when they go swimming and captures them. He brings them back to his home, where his three sons eagerly await dinner. He tells his sons that they don't eat until they have Practical Pig too, and goes out to capture Practical Pig. While he's out, the Three Little Wolves prepare to eat Fifer and Fiddler, who are shocked that they don't obey their father. Zeke dresses up as a messenger and delivers a badly written note to Practical Pig. He is captured and put in the lie detector, which scrubs his mouth with soap, spanks him, and beats him on the head when he lies. Back at the mill, Fifer and Fiddler escape when the Three Little Wolves use pepper and run home. Zeke finally tells the truth and is dispatched with a rocket.

Origins

Born to be a comic book version of the big bad wolf of fairy tales, Zeke is just an extra in a short film titled Silly Symphonies The Three Little Pigs 1933. Here, the wolf was also an extremely fierce and imposing, a trait that would later lost in later versions, in which it will, while keeping malice, a more slender body and an attitude all the more humanoid. The short film that he was a protagonist, made by Burton Gillett, however, was a success in the US, even winning an Oscar.

After this triumph, the Walt Disney decided to exploit the notoriety of the character obtained by releasing a second film that sees him as the protagonist: The Big Bad Wolf, screened in US cinemas a year after the previous, in 1934, and too 'it warmly welcomed by audiences and critics USA. The title of the film also earned Ezekiel, until then character still without a name, the name of "Big Bad Wolf", in which it was known until the forties, when it was renamed just Zeke (Zeke in English) .

Since the late 30s, Zeke Wolf began to appear in many publications disneyane comic. In these stories, as well as hunt, again without success, to piglets in the fable, the wolf interacted with other characters of the time, which appears Bear, another Disney villain with whom Zeke form alliances often unfortunate, Br'er Rabbit or Chip and Dale, these coveted prey of wolves.

New stories of Zeke and Mock are produced mainly in the Netherlands, where the character appears regularly on local newspapers Disney.
