Danish Ending

Everyone knows the abject horror of the original German fairy tales, but the Danish ones have a unique nihilistic flavor that is equally if not more distressing. Fun for the whole family!!!


  1. By way of example, "The Jungle Book". Disney has Bagheera and Baloo rescuing Mowgli from the monkeys with a jazzy musical number. Kipling had the panther and bear go in with fang and claw, getting the kid out over a mountain of monkey bodies.

    I don't know which version I prefer. One is silly happy fun. One is exciting and riveting. All depends on what day it is, I guess. Jelly beans or dark chocolate?

    1. That's a good point, there's no right or wrong answer. Sometimes you just feel one way, sometimes the other!
