This Mexican lobby card featuring a still from Three Little Pigs (1933) was recently offered on ebay, but I missed it. It promotes Festival de los 11 premios de Walt Disney, a compilation of Disney cartoon shorts. Originally released in the US in 1937 as Academy Award Review Of Walt Disney Cartoons and featuring five cartoons including Three Little Pigs, it was re-relased in 1966 with the inclusion of further cartoons. This Mexican lobby card obviously dates from the re-release era. Note that the illustrations on the frames include Li'l Wolf who was actually never featured in any animated cartoon.

In 1961, the Hamburg-based German publisher Blüchert Verlag began issuing a series of Disney booklets called Micky Maus Buch. The no. 3 of the series was Die 3 kleinen Schweinchen und der böse Wolf. In 1964, the series was picked up by another German publisher, Pestalozzi-Verlag who reprinted all of Blüchert's booklets (and continued the series with new titles). In this vein, Die 3 kleinen Schweinchen und der böse Wolf was first reprinted as no. 10 of Pestalozzi-Verlag's 'Micky Maus Buch' series. In 1988, the title would be reprinted for once again, this time as no. 103. Scans of pages featuring the wolf in this post are from the 1988 reprint (the cover doesn't feature the wolf):
