Three smart little pigs leave home to make their fortunes. They build homes: the first of straw, the second of sticks, and the third of bricks. When the big, bad wolf comes to try to eat them, he huffs and puffs and blows down the straw house and the stick house. The brothers escape to the brick house, which the wolf cannot blow down. He climbs onto the roof and falls into a fire in the hearth.
