As with other fairy tales, we have seen Goldie and the bears get [[FracturedFairyTale fractured until they are shattered]]. We've also seen her get added to the lineup of the ''VideoGame/DarkParables'', which makes her not only an adult but also a BadassPrincess.

* KarmaHoudini: Goldilocks does manage to get away in some variants. Dahl explicitly mentioned this. Though it is just a little girl who got lost in the woods and thoughtlessly used some of their accomodations so perhaps this trope is a little harsh.

Added DiffLines:

* SleepingSingle: Implied how else could Papa Bear's bed be too hard, but Mama Bear's too soft? (Of course, nowadays there are beds with adjustable hardnesses on each side, but still.)


Added DiffLines:

* SwissCheeseSecurity: Goldilocks has no difficulty getting into the bears' house. In most tellings the bears leave the door open while they go out.

Like many FairyTales, this one has evolved over the years. [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goldilocks According to that other wiki]], the original tale was probably that of Scrapfoot the vixen (as in a fox), who was an unwelcome guest at the bears' castle (yes, you read right. ''Castle''). Robert Southey apparently heard this tale from an uncle and was the first to publish it. However, he accidentally thought it was the wrong kind of vixen who, in turn, got changed into a mean old woman who, after not being invited around to the bears' place, [[CuriosityIsACrapshoot decides to go check it out for herself]]. She falls out the window and is never seen again. Goldilocks as we know her only turns up in Joseph Cundall's version 12 years later and only to stop confusion with other old ladies in other fairy tales. Nor was she the only little girl; for a long time, she was dubbed ''Silverhair'' (and Creator/GeorgeMacDonald did a ShoutOut to the tale in ''The Golden Key'' by that title).
