Yeah. You read right. This is for everything that doesn't have anything to do with Eva.

There are many, many of which disney has made. But what fairy tales are not big films and are much lesser known? I would like to know them, for the most part the darker ones. :ritsuko_mug:

Well Grimm (and those other writers who I associate with Germany) made a lot of fairy tales, but most of them were not used in popular culture. In fact, even the ones that were used were originally quite dark, such as Cinderella, and Little Red Riding Hood.
However I will warn you that a good amount of this "darkness" is best when the story is still in German, and that a lot of it is lost in translation.

If you would like to read fairy tales in their original forms I would simply look them up on Google if i were you.

Jeez, the Brothers Grimm really knew how to live up to their namesake. You have no idea...

I don't think that this is the original version of the story, but this Newgrounds movie captures the gloom pretty well: Red Riding Hood with a twist.

That was a good one! Geez, all that strength gained from beating that corset sure didn't do Red Riding Hood any good. She should've learned the Kamehameha instead and blasted that wolf.

Don't trust a prince on a white horse. He probably likes to rape dolls.

Yep, that's the one I always think of whenever this subject comes up.
Rejoice, glory is ours. Our young men have not died in vain. Their graves need no flowers. The tapes have recorded their names.

Little Red Riding Hood was fun, thanks! Wow, The Juniper Tree is really disturbed.

I'd like to see Disney do that. :chinscratch:

The Czech children's books from Monster come to mind. "Obluda, kierá nemá své jméno" anyone?

The Nameless Monster wrote:The nameless Monster
Once upon a time, there lived a nameless monster.
The monster was dying to have a name so badly.
So the monster decided to set out on a journey to find itself a name.
But the world was such a large place.
So the monster split into two and went on to two seperate journeys.
One went to the East and the other went to the west.
The monster that went to the east found a village.
There was a blacksmith at the village entrance.
"Mr.Blacksmith, please give me your name" said the monster.
"I can't give you my name" replied the blacksmith.
"If you give me your name I will jump inside you and make you stronger in return." said the monster.
"Really? I'll give you my name if you can make me stronger.", the blacksmith told the monster.
The monster jumped inside the blacksmith.
The monster became Otto the blacksmith.
Otto the blacksmith was the strongest man in the village.
But one day he said:
"Look at me! Look at me!"
"The monster inside of me has grown this big!"
*Chomp, chomp, munch, munch, gobble, gobble, gulp*
The hungry monster ate Otto from the inside out.
The monster then went back to become a monster without a name.
Even though he jumped inside Hans the shoemaker....
*Chomp, chomp, munch, munch, gobble, gobble, gulp*
He went back to being a monster without a name again.
Even though he jumped inside Thomas the hunter.....
*Chomp, chomp, munch, munch, gobble, gobble, gulp*
He still went back to being a monster without a name.
The monster then went to a castle to find a wonderful name.
Inside the castle, there was a very sick boy.
"I'll make you stronger if you give me your name" said the monster
In reply, the boy told him "I'll give you my name if you can cure my illness and make me stronger."
So the monster jumped inside the boy.
The boy became very healthy.
The King was delighted.
"The prince is well! The prince is well!" said the King.
The monster became fond of the boy's name.
He also grew fond of his life inside the castle.
That's why he endured even when he became hungry.
Every day, even when his stomach became very empty, he endured.
But then he became so hungry....
"Look at me! Look at me!" said the boy.
"The monster inside of me has grown this big!"
The boy then ate his father, servants, and everyone.
*Chomp, chomp, munch, munch, gobble, gobble, gulp*
Because everyone was gone....
The boy left on a journey
He walked and walked for days.....
One day the boy met the monster that went west
"I have a name" said the boy.
"It's a wonderful name."
And then the monster that went west said...
"I don't need a name."
"I'm happy even if I don't have a name."
"Because we're monsters without names"
The boy ate the monster that went west.
Even though he now had a name....
There was no one left to call him by his name.
Johan.
It is a wonderful name.

Johan is a decent name, I agree!
