The Kolobok Is From An East Slavic National Fairy Tale, And Its Cartoon Is Horrifying

Sara Heddleston

Sara has been operative and essay online for so many years, she’s uncertain if she is still in fleshly form. She considers herself a jack of all trades, yet would cite it if we would stop job her “Jack.”

Most angel tales have a dim and aroused origin.

Take, for example, a Children’s and Household Tales, a collection of German angel tales initial published in 1812 by Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm. Most people know a collection as Grimms’ Fairy Tales and they were notoriously morbid.

The Kolobok is tiny fritter of bread that comes to life and escapes a home of an aged male and woman. The Kolobok meets several animals that try to eat it, yet it escapes. The bread is famous to sing, “I got divided from Grandmother, we got divided from Grandfather, and we will positively get divided from you”.

For being a furious and untroubled fritter of bread, though, this animation chronicle of a story from 1990 is surprisingly horrifying.

This can’t be for kids…right?

Fairy tales — apparently, they’re not meant for children.
