Blog Entry 10

            This cartoon about Rapunzel meeting her prince is a much more realistic point of view than both the story by the Brothers Grimm and the Disney movie. In the movie and story, Rapunzel is easily able to lift the prince up with her hair, while in the cartoon, Rapunzel mentions how it would physically be impossible for the prince to climb up her hair. Although in the story, Rapunzel mentions how the prince was more easily able to climb up her hair than the witch by saying that the witch was much heavier than the prince. Also, all three versions are different because in the cartoon, Rapunzel cuts off her own hair, in the movie, the prince cuts off Rapunzel’s hair, and in the story, the witch cuts of Rapunzel’s hair. Even though the comic doesn’t discuss it, it is presumed that the prince and Rapunzel will never be able to get together and live happily ever after since there is no way for the prince to get up to the tower and rescue her. Both in the movie and the story, Rapunzel and the prince were able to get married and live happily ever after. Though all three versions have the same idea in mind, a girl with long hair waiting for her prince, the actual events and the assumed outcomes that happen in the comic are completely different than the events and outcomes in the movie and story.
