** Untold Story Land seems to be a place people sort of happen into, judging from dialog, just as Snow and the gang happened into it as well. Out of universe, this is probably an excuse to see characters we haven't seen before, but in-story, its essentially just a land of the lost that people get trapped in somehow. Disney doesn't have anything to do with it (Whale being Frankenstein was planned before the series aired) and there are plenty of characters on the show Disney never created or adapted. In the original script there were references to other non-Disney characters and places in existence as well such as aliens from War of The Worlds, Dracula, Ichabod Crane, etc. So that doesn't seem to be a factor.

** Well, it's a stretch, but Frankenweenie came out just a few weeks before the episode that revealed Whale's fairytale counterpart.

* Storybrooke, as an evil curse, is meant to be a depressing place filled with all the mundanity and pointlessness of our real world. Overdue credit payments are part of that misery I guess.

** Maybe he brought someone with him who elected to stay, for whatever reason, and got amalgamated into the rest of Hammerland/Horrorworld/Ravenloft. An older gentleman, perhaps, with knowledge of magic and how to fight monsters, whose accent happens to resemble Dutch, or a tinkerer who manages to combine the Enchanted Forest magic with Hammerland's {{Magitek}} to create a [[TheTimeMachine Time Machine]]...

Shouldn't he be in either the Land Without Color or Alice's Victorian London? I mean if Dr. Frankenstein and Alice's stories have been told why not Hyde's?

** I was under the impression that Untold Stories was a somewhat meta way to refer to stories that hadn't been adapted yet by Disney, so Hyde's story is untold in the sense that until appearing in OUAT it hasn't been told by Disney.

I'm rewatching the pilot and I'm wondering something: What is the purpose of Mary Margaret or any of the other cursed people having credit cards? First of all, we later learn that the town essentially doesn't exist to the outside world, meaning that a bunch of non-entities would be making charges that will never be collected on or even noticed by whatever credit card company the people of Storybrooke use. And second, in Regina's intended version of the curse, there'd be no occasion for anyone to ever have to buy anything, what with the town being stuck in a loop and all. My point here is, that seems like a weird detail to include.
