  • Echo.


  • Fairytales are wonderful, magical stories that capture children's imaginations and delight and entertain them.


  • Well, maybe today, at least, but in some of the original versions of fairytales, recorded by guys like the Brothers Grimm, fairytales play a little more like installments from the Saw franchise.


  • Listen.


  • You know that Cinderella has a magical encounter at the ball with the prince, right?


  • And, she leaves her glass slipper behind, which he later uses to identify her.


  • Well, in the Brothers Grimm version of the story, which they recorded in 1812, it's a little darker.

    根據格林兄弟 1812 年所寫的版本,內容其實有點黑暗。

  • Cinderella's wicked stepsisters try to get in on that glass slipper action by carving off some of their feet so they can jam it in there.


  • Luckily, some pigeons that happen to be hanging out nearby point out all of the blood, and the wicked stepsisters are found out.


  • Later on, those same pigeons poke out Cinderella's wicked stepsisters' eyes at her wedding.


  • Cinderella's not the only fairytale that features step-family, brutal revenge action.


  • At Snow White's wedding, the partygoers force Snow White's wicked stepmother to put on searing hot iron shoes and dance around until she collapses and dies.


  • What?


  • In the 1940 Disney version of Pinocchio, the little wooden rascal gets into a little bit of trouble with some shallow vices like gambling and fibbing.

    1940 年迪士尼動畫版《木偶奇遇記》那個常常惹麻煩的小淘氣木偶有些陋習像是賭博和說謊。

  • But in the original version, written in 1883 by Carlo Collodi, Pinocchio turns totally Patrick Bateman.

    但在 1883 年卡洛‧柯洛迪原著中,皮諾丘完全就是殺人魔。 (註:派翠克.貝特曼為《美國殺人魔》主角)

  • He bashes his good friend, the cricket, with a hammer, killing him.


  • You're familiar with the contours of the Rapunzel story.


  • There's a girl who's trapped in a tower by a crazed witch.


  • She has freakishly long hair that a prince climbs up and hangs out with her.


  • Well, in the early version, Rapunzel's hair is climbed up upon by the prince, sure, but while he's up there, he apparently gets her pregnant.


  • After the crazed witch finds out, she goes berserk, cuts off Rapunzel's hair, banishes her to a desert and forces the prince to jump from the tower.


  • He, apparently being unaware that he's in a Grimm fairytale, fails to cover his eyes on the way down and lands in a thorn bush.


  • His eyeballs are, of course, gouged out.


  • If we're going with the 1827 Hans Christian Andersen version of the Little Mermaid, no one in their right mind would want to be Part of Your World.

    時光倒轉回 1827 年,安徒生版本的小美人魚,根本沒有人會想參與她的海底世界。

  • In this telling, the sea witch traps the Little Mermaid's voice by cutting off her tongue and putting it in a shell for safekeeping.


  • At the end, the mermaid is given a choice of turning back into a mermaid by stabbing the prince in the heart and bathing her feet in his blood after he splits on her for somebody else.
