He encounters a fox and a cat, who steal his money and unsuccessfully try to hang him. Luckily, after saving Geppetto from the terrible dogfish you might know it better as the gigantic, angry whale from the film , Pinocchio shapes up and eventually becomes a real boy and, you know, all that stuff about boys getting turned into donkeys and then sold to evil circuses did end up making it into the movie, surprisingly.
When no one answers, he climbs up a ladder through a window. He finds the princess, and calls to her, but as she is unconscious, she does not wake up.
Well, dear reader, he carries her to the bed and rapes her. Then he just leaves. She awakens after she gives birth because one of her twins sucks the flax from the spindle out of her finger. The king comes back, and despite him having raped her, they end up falling in love? However, another big problem: the king is still married to someone else. His wife finds out and not only tries to have the twins killed, cooked, and fed to the king, but also tries to burn the princess at the stake.
Luckily, she is unsuccessful. The king and the princess get married and live happily ever after despite the fact that he raped her. Perrault's adaptation of Basile's updated adaptation of the story a much tamer version is probably what was used for the Disney adaptation, as they are much more similar.
But still, I think it's worth mentioning. In the Brothers Grimm version, Rapunzel gets knocked up by the prince before they escape , and the evil sorceress figures it out. The sorceress cuts off Rapunzel's hair and throws her out into the wilderness. When the prince shows up to see her, the sorceress dangles Rapunzel's cut-off hair to lure him, and tells him he will never see Rapunzel again.
He jumps out the window in despair and is blinded from the thorns below. He wanders around aimlessly he is blind.
Rapunzel gives birth to twins. He is eventually guided back to her when he hears her voice. Her tears restore his sight. They return to the prince's kingdom and live happily ever after.
Some of these fairy tales actually DO have real happy endings, even when women have babies out of wedlock! Well, fancy that. A jealous brother kills the king, the son finds out about it and wants revenge. Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, I mean, Timon and Pumba, distract him. But finally, the son kills the evil jealous brother.
Well, actually, in Shakespeare's version everyone dies , not just the evil, jealous brother formerly known as "Claudius". However, in the story, she asks him to also bring her back Snow White's lungs and liver. He can't kill Snow White, so brings back a boar's lungs and liver instead.
The queen eats the lungs and liver, believing them to be Snow White's. In the book, the queen tries twice unsuccessfully to kill Snow White. The third time, when the queen gives her the apple just like in the movie , Snow White faints and can't be revived.
She is placed in a glass coffin. A prince comes and wants to take her away even though she is still asleep, which is pretty weird. The dwarves hesitantly allow it, and while she is being carried, the carriers trip, causing the poisoned apple to become dislodged from Snow White's throat. She and the prince, of course, get married. The evil queen is invited. As a punishment, she is forced to wear burning-hot iron shoes and dance until she drops dead.
