Fairytale Origins

l. The siad -Piper
In the tale of the Pied Piper,
we have a village overrun with
rats. A man arrives dressed in
clothes of pied (a patchwork of
colors) and offers to rid the i
town of the vermin. The
villagers agree to pay a vast
sum of money if the piper can
do it- and he does. He plays music on his pipe which draws
all the rats out of the town. When he returns for payment
the villagers won' t cough up so the Pied Piper decides to
rid the town of children too! In most modern variants, t
he piper draws the children to a cave out of the town and
when the townsfolk finally agree to pay up, he sends them
back. In the darker original, the piper leads the children
to a river where they all drown (except a lame boy who couldn' t
keep up). Some modern scholars say that there are
connotations of pedophilia in this fairy tale.
b. Little Wed
The version of this tale that most of us are
familiar with ends with Riding Hood being
saved by the woodsman who kills the
wicked wolf. But in fact, the original French
version (by Charles Perrault) of the tale
was not quite so nice. In this version,
the little girl is a well bred young lady who is
given false instructions by the wolf when she
asks the way to her grandmothers. Foolishly _ -
riding hood takes the advice of the wolf and ends up being eaten.
And here the story ends.
There is no woodsman - no grandmother -just a fat wolf and
a dead Red Riding Hood. The moral to this story is to not take
advice from strangers.
In the tale of snow white that we are all
familiar with, the Queen asks a huntsman
to kill her and bring her heart back as w
proof. Instead, the huntsman can' t bring '
himself to do it and returns with the heart l,
of a boar. Now, fortunately disney hasn' t ‘C N ' S' s, _
done too much damage to this tale, but , 'a ,
they did leave out one important original 'p' . ft' _
element: in the original tale, the Queen I (
actually asks for Snow White' s liver and _ d' . C
lungs - which are to be served for dinner idgi-'' ms_
that night! Also in the original, Snow White wakes up
when she by the princes horse as he carries her
back to his castle - not from a magical kiss.
What the prince wanted to do with a dead girl' s body
I will leave to your imagination. Oh - in the Grimm version,
the tale ends with the Queen being forced to dance to death in
red hot iron shoes!
In the original sleeping beauty, _ -, "
the lovely princess is put to "f. r' ',
sleep when she pricks her finger 'ias"
on a spindle. She sleeps for one t
hundred years when a prince _i !‘
wakens her. They fall in love, . %'
marry, and (surprise surprise) live happily ever after.
But alas, the original tale is not so sweet
in fact, you have to read this to believe it.)
In the original, the young woman is put to sleep because
of a prophesy, rather than a curse. And it isn' t the kiss of a
prince which wakes her up'. the king seeing her asleep,
and rather fancying having a bit, rapes her.
After nine months she gives birth to two children
while she is still asleep). One of the children sucks her finger
which removes the piece of flax which was keeping her asleep.
She wakes up to find herself raped and the mother of two kids.

It's actually based on Hamlet, but I like your idea better.

It's actually a rip-off of an anime made in the 50s by Osamu Tezuka (who made Astro boy!) about a white lion called "Kimba" who gets tricked out of his crown and his father is murdered by his evil aunt (Scar had a gender swap!).

Disney copied almost every memorable scene from this, including Simba seeing his father in the clouds.

But yeah, Kimba was probably inspired by Hamlet, it's very similar! :P

actually in red riding hood, in that time setting, rapists were refered to as wolves. So red riding hood was not eaten as the tale suggests, but raped.

The original Little Red Riding Hood:

-Girl lives with mother
-mother moves to deep forest
-girl sent to live with her pedo-uncle
-girl says she going back to live with her mom
- uncle says," lol NOPE"
- locks her in iron corset & says she can move away when she can break out
-After much rape and many years she breaks free
- goes to forest meets wolf

The story is the same from here, except at some point before she realizes her mother is actually a cross-dressing wolf, she's fed a meal made from the flesh and blood of her mom. No woodsman. No happy ending.

In the story of Rumpelstiltskin, the girl who is supposed to give up her first born child in exchange for Rumpelstiltskin turning the straw into gold guesses his name correctly (as expected) and he flies into such a crazy rage that he drives his right foot into the ground, grabs the other foot, and rips his body in half.

That awkward moment when you say you'd rape more than one unable to be woken young men of royal birth...
