Grandpa vs. The Big Bad Wolf

vs.



 
Can you see anything in common between The Big Bad Wolf and Juan Or's paternal Grandpa?

Well, probably not, at least for us adults. But in Juan Or's eyes, both look ALIKE! Well, maybe it could be the overall longish head, gruff look and dark complexion shared by both of them! ^_^

How does this comparison come about? Well, it all started when Mommy played the "3 Pigs and a Baby" DVD cartoon for Juan Or to watch. This cartoon revolves around a team of big bad wolves trying to get hold of the 3 pigs using an improvised method (yes, no longer the fairy tale method!). The wolves leave a cub at the front of the doorstep of the piggy brother whose house is made of solid brick. At that time, the other piggy brothers already had their houses blown down by the wolves, so they have already moved in to their well-to-do big brother piggy's brick house. So the 3 piggies raised the cub like their own child and soon the cub grew into a teenager whose looks become so much like one of the big bad wolves. So one day, during recess at school, the big bad wolves tried luring the teenager wolf to join their group, but without success. Then the wolves resorted to using a giant fan to blow down the piggy's brick house and that's when the teenager wolf stepped in to defend his piggy dads. Now back to Juan Or, the first time Juan Or set his eyes on the Big Bad Wolf main character, immediately he called out "Ah Kong (Grandpa)" and when Mommy specifically asked him to point which character did he refer to as "Ah Kong", he pointed at the Big Bad Wolf! ^_^

Mery and Merryn, LOL!

Smallkucing, hahahaha, gotcha! I knew you will think of Book Xcess punya Big Bad Wolf!

Shenny's mommy, LOL, I have yet to tell his Ah Kong about this, I'm wondering too! :P

mNhL, LOL, where the 'firceness' is concerned, both of them are at opposite sides. As for looks, maybe to an innocent child, they look similar! ^_^ Btw, this is not the first time Juan Or made such comparison. He also mentioned to me that Andy's mum (in Toy Story 2) looks like his babysitter, which I agree too!

Serline said...

Sharp eyes, there is a bit of resemblance... My father-in-law is also "mean-looking". Legend has it that he struck the fear of God whenever he visited my hubby's primary school ;-P

Alice Phua said...

Serline, LOL!

Alice Law said...

I heard they are going to hold one towards the end of this year. The 3 pigs cartoon is not so new already. First released in 2008. Yes, it's about 1 1/2 hr. long.

Alice Phua said...

Hayley, I have yet to tell FIL about it, but I guess he is likely to laugh out loud! :P

Mummy Gwen said...

Thanks for dropping by. ^_^

Hehe...Ah Kong = Big Bad Wolf? Juan Or is very observant ya. :) I didn't know there is this 3 little piggies cartoon series.

Alice Phua said...

Hi Mummy Gwen, LOL, I also didn't expect he can make such comparison! Yes, there's is this 3 piggies cartoon, but it's movie type, not series.

Alice Phua said...

Cheeyee, yes, humanized wolf! :P
