The story is short and lighthearted, more a folktale than a FairyTale. It was collected by Creator/TheBrothersGrimm and included in their ''Children's and Household Tales''. Although it has not achieved the prominence of some of their other stories, it remains a fairly popular and easily adaptable story for children. Adaptations include the Soviet animated musical ''Animation/TownMusiciansOfBremen'', JimHenson's ''The Muppet Musicians of Bremen'', and the German animated movie ''WesternAnimation/TheFearlessFour''.

Creator/CartoonNetwork has also produced a number of shorts called "Wedgies"; one of these is ''WesternAnimation/TheBremenAvenueExperience'', a GarageBand which includes FunnyAnimal versions of the same animals from the original folktale: a rooster, a cat, a dog, and a donkey.

Alluded to in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask'' by the Bremen's Mask, which is used to play a flute that makes animals follow Link.

There is also a manga called ''{{Bremen}}'', which is about a rock group in Japan who name themselves from this story. A small allusion to the animal motifs exist in the manga.

* DreadfulMusician: Considering that the musicians' only performance convinces the audience (of robbers) that they're DemonLordsAndArchdevils, they presumably qualify.

[[http://www.surlalunefairytales.com/brementown/index.html "The Bremen Town Musicians"]] is a German folk story about a group of animals who decide to run away and form a musical troup. Unfortunately, although they don't realize it, their singing is beyond awful, and their first "concert" scares away its audience: a group of robbers stationed in a cottage. The animals settle into the cottage, and when the robbers return by night, again repel them, mostly because of the robbers' own superstitious fears. The animals decide to remain at the cottage, and live happily ever after.
