Fractured Fairy Tales

Remember the Rocky and Bullwinkle Show and their Fractured Fairy Tales? (BTW, they also fractured children’s stories) This kind of humor is very popular, portrayed in hundreds of books.

Try a little ‘fracturing’ yourself:

Remember, there are a lot of ways to fracture a fairy tale:

* Change the main character
* Change the setting (time or place)
* Tell the story from a different character’s point of view
* Make the problem of the story different
* Change an important item in the story (for example, the glass
slipper in Cinderella)
* Change the ending of the story (maybe they don’t live “happily
ever after”)
