Yanno the ones Disney hasn't made movies of and that are so weird they probably never will?

What are some of your favorites? Share the really weird ones!

My favorites are probably The Twelve Dancing Princesses, The Pied Piper and East of the Sun and West of the Moon. biggrin

East of the Sun and West of the Moon. biggrin


Beauty and the Beast has nothing on that story. NOTHING.

I'm also fond of Ancient Egyptian mythos, like the story of how the other gods got one of the goddesses to stop killing mortals by getting her drunk, and that's the reason ancient Egyptians had a wine festival every year. Good stuff, good stuff.

I've a soft spot for The Twa Sisters (which has so many other names it's not even funny). It's the one about the singing harp strung with hair.

I know right? Beauty had it easy.

Aw man Egyptian mythology is fun. biggrin I'm rather fond of Norse mythology too, they're both delightfully weird.

barbie did the twelve dancing princesses and i think i heard of east of the sun not sure though. i really like the original stories from Disney the ones that had to be edited for children (ex. Cinderella the step sisters actually cut off their toes and heels to try and fit the slipper.) i am also enjoying seeing our child hood stories being turned into more adult Gothic ones (ex. snow white and the huntsmen, red ridding hood)
How Sun, Moon, and Wind went out to Dinner is definitely one of my favorites (even though I tend to view the Sun as Feminine and the Moon as Masculine, it's still a lovely story).

The Twelve Months is another favorite.
I also haven't heard some of these, redface
Thank you for sharing, I'll be sure to look into them. : )

It's too complicated to summarize accurately but there are plenty of versions online.

Okay thanks, where is a good place to look online, any site suggestions?
I've read the whole Brother's Grimm anthology, and in all honesty, it's hard to pick a favorite. I loved them all.

Two of my favorite fairy tales are Tam Lin and Donkeyskin. I also like Donkey Cabbages. None of them will EVER be remade by Disney. Tam Lin involves a pregnant teenager, Donkeyskin involves incest, and Donkey Cabbages has the hero take revenge on the "heroine."
