* A villain named Bluebeard appeared in the 1949 PorkyPig short "Bye Bye Bluebeard", where he was wolf-like and did, indeed, have a blue beard. (He was [[VileVillainSaccharineShow far more evil]] than most ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' villains, tying poor Porky up and building a guillotine to use on him. Fortunately for Porky, this version is a VillainousGlutton, and he's saved when a mouse tricks Bluebeard into eating bombs disguised as popovers.)

!! Adaptions Adaptations of the tale or appearances of the character in other works:



* A ballad ''Bridegroom'' by Creator/AlexanderPushkin is similar to "Mr.Fox" version. A merchant's daughter got lost in the woods and came back 3 days later after experiencing something horrible, which she refuses to tell. Later she is [[ArrangedMarriage forced to marry]] some man she is afraid of. At the wedding she [[AllJustADream retells a nightmare]], where she stumbles upon a strange house, hides and watches a wedding of a bandit leader that ends with the bride's murder and chopping her hand off. Then she asks her groom if he recognizes [[ThatWasNotADream the ring from that hand]]. The groom is promptly arrested, tried and executed.
* Russian folktale "The Cat with the Golden Tail" replaces Bluebeard with a ''bear'', who kidnaps girls and forces them to live in his house as his wife and housekeeper. He murders them for entering a forbidden storehouse with kegs of magic liquids (that can turn anything to gold, to silver, [[HealingSpring resurrect dead]] or [[GrimyWater heal wounds but kill the patient]]). He also ends up storing the corpses next to kegs.[[note]] The third girl resurrects her sisters, tricks the bear into carrying them all home and arranges the accident that kills him.[[/note]]

* Creator/UrsulaVernon's short story "Bluebeard's Wife" (in which Bluebeard marries a woman who grew up in a nosy family and consequently determines that if he wants his own private space she's not going to intrude) and novel ''The Seventh Bride'' (in which the Bluebeard character is a sorcerer and the price for failing his tests is not so simple as death).

* The musical being staged on the night of the 1903 Iroquois theater fire in Chicago was a loose adaptation of the folk tale. Entitled ''Mr Bluebeard'', it moved the action to a heavily exoticized version of [[ArabianNightsDays Baghdad]], not that this stopped the show including Irish charmers, a number about ''Hamlet'' and a platoon of singing Hussars, or paying a whistle-stop tour of [[InterchangeableAsianCultures India and Japan]]. The characters had [[StockForeignName stock foreign names]] like Fatima, Abulim, Beco, Zoli and, most bafflingly of all, ''[[TheyJustDidntCare Anne]]''. Even by the standards of the time it wasn't considered a very good show, and the fire is probably the only reason anyone remembers ''Mr Bluebeard'' at all.
