Francesco Spina
The repunzlel one was in the movie into the woods, but not all only the thorn parts
Moral of the story? Back in the day people didn't raise their children to be weak.
Minnie Hopo
I heard the original Snowhite before the disney version. Remember it clearly, being horrified at that she was dropped out of her casket. I don't like the Disney versions of just about any of the stories. They feel merely plagiarized . Most Hollywood stuff is.
I'm forced to say that people overanalyze Winnie the Pooh.

I read the real story of rapunzuel as well
Where is the little mermaid because the real story is by a Danish writer called Hans Christian Andersen and the story is from the late 1800. The story is so popular that Walt Disney got a copy of the real version of the little mermaid in Denmark at his grave.

OK late to the party again .
I have learned of the origins of children's fairy tales and yes almost all were never written as happily ever after .
Some were quite gruesome .
But psycho analyzing Winne the Pooh goes a little (lot) to far.
I mean hell if you look at anything in life you can psycho analyze it till your heart desire and come up with which ever conclusion you want to .

I already knew the story of Pocahontas. I learned it in Social Studies.

Oh god...
J Mac Hero
I know Pocahontas' dies when she is 22. I already learned that before I watched the Disney movie!

My mom used to tell me the real story of rapunzal when i was small... i never knew it was the real one..
Um. Actually with Snow White, the prince rapes the princess while she's asleep/dead. Then later wakes up when she gives birth.
Bobbi Blare
Wait I think I've heard of the story about Rapunzel...
John Kenny
Check Shelley Longs 1980s series tall tales and legends for a similiar version of rapunzel in a childrens story

I laik scary shit like this 0w0
the professional loser
When will you guys realize that they are kid-afiing this for kids, not adults. You make it sound like Walt Disney wanted to give kids nightmares. Tarzan, for example, is not originalally from Walt, so what's wrong with the others?

Have you guys ever noticed that when the Live action "Into The Woods" actually uses the real story of "Rapunzul" (I think thats how you spell it) and shows everything that happened in the story (Almost everything) and I told my friends/Family and they didn't believe me until I told them the real story of "Rapunzel"
