Happy Birthday, Red!

Today’s Google Doodle is pretty durned awexome:

200th Anniversary of Grimm's Fairy Tales

Google’s Red Doodle

See, it’s the 200th anniversary of the publishing of the 1st edition of the Grimm brothers’ collection of Fairy tales. Which included Little Red Riding Hood.

Anyway, if you haven’t already, click here and enjoy the story of Little Red Riding Hood told entirely with pictures and no dialogue, done in an art style that I absolutely adore (does anyone know how to find the artist credits for these Google Doodles?).

One thought on “Happy Birthday, Red!”

    There are some differences in this version, of course. The Grimm version had no knitted scarf rescue. Instead the lumberjack slits open the wolf’s belly to free the undigested victims. They then all fill the wolf’s belly with stones. Upon waking the wolf tries to flee, but can’t because of the weight of the stones, and then dies.
