Synopsis (based on Wikipedia):

A mother goat leaves her seven children at home while she ventures into the forest to find food. Before she leaves, she warns her young about the Big Bad Wolf who will try to sneak into the house and gobble them up. The wolf will pretend to be their mother and convince the kids to open the door. The wolf disguises himself ans the children let him in. He swallows them all but one. The mother opens the wolf's belly with scissors and takes her children out. The wolf later drowns.
