In today’s episode:

  1. The Little Old Lady
  2. The Devil With the Three Golden Hairs
  3. The Louse and the Flea
  4. The Girl Without Hands
  5. Clever Hans

I’m afraid I will spoil every other tale for you. The first one is very short and it’s hard to get to the point without telling too much. The third and fifth tales were one of the WTF-just-happened tales and even though I will tell you what happened, maybe you should just read them and tell me that they actually do make sense.

In today’s episode:

  1. Poverty and Humility Lead to Heaven
  2. The Three Little Men in the Wood
  3. The Three Spinners
  4. Hansel and Gretel
  5. The Three Snake-Leaves

Check out those stories, or go on to read my thoughts about them.

I don’t know about you, but I kind of started to have enough of those nameless heroes. Young man here, a woman there, a king… there’s barely a name in all those stories. And in some of them it’s hard to actually present you guys with the story. At the beginning, there’s a nameless child and at the end we’ve got an old woman or a king.

I’ve decided I’m going to choose the names for some of those heroes, just for the review purposes. No, these names probably won’t match these characters much. Yes, they might sound ridiculous. But guess what… You can propose your own names in comments :). Continue reading “Grimm Fairy Tales episode 4”
