* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: It is never explained what the hell the witch did to the Sister's body after killing her. Some adaptions handwave it by having her magically turn the Sister into a ghost rather than actually killing her. Creator/PhilipPullman's version has the stepmother hide the body by sealing the room with magic and hiding it behind a tapestry.

Added DiffLines:

* BeautyEqualsGoodness: The sister is described as the most beautiful woman her husband had ever seen (and since he's a king, that's saying something), and is portrayed as kind and loving. The stepsister, on the other hand, is utterly repugnant in both appearance and personality.

After their mother has died, two young siblings, a boy and a girl, are mistreated by their WickedStepmother, so much that they decide to run away from home. But the stepmother, who is also a [[WickedWitch witch]], enchants the streams of the forest where the children are wandering, so that drinking from them would turn them into animals. The girl sees through the trap and talks her brother out of drinking from two streams that would have turned him into a tiger and a wolf, but when they come upon a stream that turns people into deer, he is so thirsty that he doesn't care any more, and turns into a fawn.

But by now, the evil stepmother has learned that the siblings are still alive, and, driven by hate and envy, plots to destroy their happiness...
