1978 'Three Little Pigs Meet Seven Dwarfs' Read-Along Record (Roger Pierre)

In 1978, another Disneyland Record was added to the French "Read-Along" series: Regardez (Look), Ecoutez (Listen), Lisez (Read). Catalog  no. LLP - 451 F. It was titled, Les 3 Petits Cochons Rencontrent les 7 Nains (The Three Little Pigs Meet the Seven Dwarfs). Format: 45 rpm, 7" vinyl disc. Includes an attached 24-page book. A musical flute audio cue lets the reader know to turn the page.

Narrated by Roger Pierre with additional voices from with Linette Lemercier, Colette Ripert, Jane Val, Jacques Provins, and Gérard Surugue. A few sound effects are heard along with short instrumentals of Heigh-Ho and Whistle While You Work. Two vocal songs are also included: Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf, which is played about three-quarters of the way through the record, and With a Smile and a Song (taken from the 1962 Christiane Legrand recording), which Snow White sings at the conclusion of the story.

Quick synopsis: The Three Little Pigs are being harassed by the Big Bad Wolf. They flee to the forest and stumble upon the cottage of the Seven Dwarfs. No one is home so they take a nap in their beds. The dwarfs return from the mine. After their initial shock, they welcome the pigs. In the end, the dwarfs help the pigs foil the wolf. Then they head to Snow White's castle for a song.
