Fairy tales

  1. 1. Little Red Riding Hood<br />Little Red Riding Hood, also known as Little Red Cap, is a famous fairy tale about a young girl and a Big Bad Wolf. The story has been changed considerably in its history and subject to numerous modern adaptations and readings. The story revolves around a girl called Little Red Riding Hood, after the red hooded cape/cloak (InPerrault's fairytale) or a simple cap (In Grimm's fairytale) she wears. The girl walks through the woods to deliver food to her sick grandmother.<br />A wolf wants to eat the girl but is afraid to do so in public. He approaches Little Red Riding Hood and she naïvely tells him where she is going. He suggests the girl pick some flowers, which she does. In the meantime, he goes to the grandmother's house and gains entry by pretending to be the girl. He swallows the grandmother whole, and waits for the girl, disguised as the grandmother.<br />When the girl arrives, she notices he looks very strange to be her grandmother. Little Red Riding Hood then says, "What big hands you have!" In most retellings, this eventually culminates with Little Red Riding Hood saying, "My, what big teeth you have!", to which the wolf replies, "The better to eat you with," and swallows her whole, too.<br />A hunter, however, comes to the rescue and cuts the wolf open. Little Red Riding Hood and her grandmother emerge unharmed. They fill the wolf's body with heavy stones. The wolf awakens thirsty from his large meal and goes to the well to seek water, where he falls in and drowns. (Sanitized versions of the story have had the grandmother shut in the closet instead of eaten, and some have Little Red Riding Hood saved by the hunter as the wolf advances on her, rather than after she is eaten.)<br />The tale makes the clearest contrast between the safe world of the village and the dangers of theforest, conventional antitheses that are essentially medieval, though no written versions are as old as that.<br />CINDERELLA<br />SYNOPSIS<br />A rags-to-riches tale comes true with the touch of a wand and Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo! Poor Cinderella spends her days at the beck and call of her evil stepmother and stepsisters Drizella and Anastasia. Everything changes once her Fairy Godmother arrives. Just a dose of her magic turns this maiden's dreams into reality when a pumpkin-turned-coach carries her all the way to a royal ball ... and into the arms of Prince Charming. However, at the stroke of midnight Cinderella's ball gown returns to rags, leaving her no choice but to run away. The only thing left of her enchanted evening is a single glass slipper. With clue in hand, the love struck prince combs the land in search of his princess ? and his happily ever after!<br />Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (commonly shortened to Alice in Wonderland<br />Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (commonly shortened to Alice in Wonderland) is an 1865novel written by English author Charles Lutwidge Dodgson under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll.[1] It tells of a girl named Alice who falls down a rabbit hole into a fantasy world (Wonderland) populated by peculiar, anthropomorphic creatures. The tale plays with logic, giving the story lasting popularity with adults as well as children.[2] It is considered to be one of the best examples of the literary nonsense genre,[2][3] and its narrative course and structure have been enormously influential,[3]especially in the fantasy genre.<br />Master Cat; or, The Booted Cat"<br />Master Cat; or, The Booted Cat" (early French: Le Maistre Chat, ou Le Chat Botté), commonly known as "Puss in Boots", is a French literary fairy tale about a cat who uses trickery and deceit to gain power, wealth, and the hand of a princess in marriage for his penniless and low-born master. The tale was written at the close of the seventeenth century byCharles Perrault (1628–1703), a retired civil servant and member of the  HYPERLINK "" o "Académie française" Académie française.[1]The tale appeared in a handwritten and illustrated manuscript two years before its 1697 publication by Barbin in a collection of eight fairy tales by Perrault called  HYPERLINK "" o "Histoires ou contes du temps passé" Histoires ou contes du temps passé.[2][3] The book was an instant success and remains popular today.[1]<br />The tale's immorality has provoked some concern about its influence on young minds, but apparently Perrault composed "Le Maistre Chat" and the other tales of Histoires to reinforce standards of civilized conduct in the upper-class French society of the seventeenth century rather than to provide amusement and instruction for the young. Indeed, Puss has been described by one commentator as "the epitome of the educated bourgeois secretary who serves his master with complete devotion and diligence."[4]<br />Perrault's Histoires has had considerable impact on world culture. The frontispiece to the earliest English editions depicts an old woman telling tales to a group of children beneath a placard inscribed 'MOTHER GOOSE'S TALES' and is credited with launching the Mother Goose legend in the English-speaking world.[2] "Puss in Boots" has provided inspiration for composers, choreographers, and other artists over the centuries. The cat appears in the third act pas de caractère of Tchaikovsky's ballet The Sleeping Beauty, for example, HYPERLINK "" l "cite_note-BrownP351-4" [5] and makes appearances in other media.<br />Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs<br />Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937) is the first full-length animated feature (83 minutes in length) in color and with sound, one of Disney's greatest films, and a pioneering classic tale in film history. It was financed due in part to the success of Disney's earlier animated short, The Three Little Pigs (1933). Although dubbed "Disney's Folly" during the three-four year production of the musical animation, Disney realized that he had to expand and alter the format of cartoons.<br />It was the first commercially successful film of its kind and a technically brilliant, innovative example of Disney animation. It was the first film with an official soundtrack and the first film to release a motion picture soundtrack album. The story was adapted from the original Brothers Grimms' Fairy Tales, but in a bowdlerized or sanitized version, without overt sexual references or violent content. Disney's version of the Grimm Brothers' fairy tale was the second of its kind - the first was a five-minute Snow White (1933) starring Betty Boop (with an appearance by Cab Calloway).<br />It was the first Disney film distributed by RKO Studios (this arrangement lasted until 1953, when Disney established its own distribution company - named Buena Vista). In late 1994, Snow White was finally released on VHS home video (and laser disc) and sold 10 million copies in its first week of sale. After three weeks of availability, it sold over 17 million copies, and would soon surpass the all-time champ, Disney's Aladdin (with 24 million copies sold since its late-1993 release). It eventually sold 50 million copies worldwide, the best-selling cassette of all time. It was the last of the early Disney animated films released for home video, following Pinocchio (1940), Sleeping Beauty (1959), and Cinderella (1950).[Snow White was later released for the first time on DVD, in late 2001.]<br />The story is a familiar one: raised by a wicked and vain Queen (voice of Lucille La Verne), beautiful Snow White (voice of nineteen year-old Adriana Caselotti) is taken into the forest to be murdered. However, the Huntsman (voice of Stuart Buchanan) cannot commit the horrible deed, so she flees and finds refuge in the home of seven diamond-mine workers/dwarfs.<br />Doc (voice of Roy Atwell)<br />Happy (voice of Otis Harlan)<br />Bashful (voice of Scotty Mattraw)<br />Sneezy (voice of Billy Gilbert)<br />Sleepy (voice of Pinto Colvig)<br />Grumpy (voice of Pinto Colvig)<br />Dopey (mute) - originally a buck-toothed buffoon named Deafy<br />The Adventures of Pinocchio<br />The Adventures of Pinocchio ( /pɪˈnoʊki.oʊ/, US dict:  HYPERLINK "" o "Wikipedia:United States dictionary transcription" pĭ·nō′·kē·ō; Italian: Le avventure di Pinocchio) is a novel for children by Italian author Carlo Collodi, written in Florence. The first half was originally a serial between 1881 and 1883, and then later completed as a book for children in February 1883. It is about the mischievous adventures of Pinocchio (pronounced [piˈnɔkkjo] in Italian), an animated marionette, and his poor father, a woodcarver named  HYPERLINK "" o "Mister Geppetto" Geppetto. It is considered a classic of children's literature and has spawned many derivative works of art, such as Disney's1940 animated movie of the same name, and commonplace ideas such as a liar's long nose.<br />THE THREE LITTLE PIGS<br />The story follows three pigs sent out into the world by their mother. Each of them builds a house to protect them from the hardships of the world, but along comes a big bad wolf. One by one, the wolf blows each house down until he comes to the last pig's house, which was built on a strong foundation of brick. The wolf is unable to even scuff the brick house and attempts to sneak in through the chimney. The pigs are ready for his entrance, placing a pot of boiling water in the fireplace. When the wolf leaps into the chimney, he lands in the pot and the pigs make a stew out of him.<br />The Ugly Duckling"<br />The Ugly Duckling" (Danish: (Den grimme ælling) is a literary fairy tale by Danish poet and author Hans Christian Andersen (1805 – 1875). The story tells of a homely little bird born in a barnyard who suffers abuse from his neighbors until, much to his delight (and to the surprise of others), he matures into a beautiful swan, the most beautiful bird of all. The story is beloved around the world as a tale about personal transformation for the better.[1] “The Ugly Duckling” was first published 11 November 1843 with three other tales by Andersen in Copenhagen, Denmark to great critical acclaim. The tale has been adapted to various media including opera, musical, and animated film. The tale is completely Andersen's invention and owes no debt to fairy or folk lore.<br />
