Red is an American animated character, created by Tex Avery, who appears in several MGM short films and Tom and Jerry movies. She is a fictional nightclub singer and dancer who is usually making all men in the room crazy, especially a Wolf character who — in vain tries to seduce and chase her. Red debuted in MGM's Red Hot Riding Hood (May 8, 1943), a modern-day variant of the fairy tale "Little Red Riding Hood".[1]

She appeared in seven animated shorts in the Golden age of American animation, and was revived to appear in many Hanna-Barbera TV cartoon series from the 1990s on.
