Also known as The Wolf and the Seven Goats, this 16mm silent Grimm’s fairy tale is a rare clay animated version by German filmmakers Ferdinand, Hermann, and Paul Diehl (thank you Samantha Anne Scott!) in 1939. It was made for the Third Reich’s Ministry of Education and was made to stress German customs and traits. They made a series of these from 1935 to 1943, forgoing their previous forays into the kind of silhouette stop animations made famous by Lotte Reiniger. The person who found this film says it is from 1930, but I am fairly certain it is from 1939.
