Wolves Witches and Giants, narrated by Spike Milligan, is a children's cartoon series of humorous adaptations of classic fairy tales, featuring a collection of villains including the Big Bad Wolf, a wicked witch and an enormous giant. It was written by musician Ed Welch, based on an LP, also performed by Milligan. The Directors and Producers were Simon & Sara Bor of Honeycomb Animation. There were 4 series of 13 episodes and 3 specials produced for ITV from 1995-99. CITV revived the series in 2008 where it still runs.

It included such remakes of tales such as Little Red Riding Hood, Sleeping Beauty, Hansel and Gretel, Cinderella, and The Three Billy Goats Gruff.

It was made by the same producers that made the original Grizzly Tales for Gruesome Kids, Tube Mice, Binka, Funky Valley and the new series of Grizzly Tales

Although being based in Medieval times, it has featured some modern equipment, such as the Big Bad Wolf driving a blue sports car, a tailor playing on a handheld game console, Little Red Riding Hood's bed-ridden grandmother watching an Australian soap on her TV, or the Wicked Witch using a microwave.

The series has been released on VHS; but not DVD.
