* LionsAndTigersAndHumansOhMy: In several versions of the fable, whenever the wolf goes off to get the flour to whiten his paw (and in some versions, chalk or another substance with which to sweeten his voice), he'll barge into a store/bakery or a mill, which are usually owned and run by humans. The only comment that's passed by the humans is that the wolf is barging into their work and strong-arming them into giving him what he wants, never once raising an eyebrow over the fact that it's a wolf doing so.

When the mother goat returns, she discovers her house is a mess and finds her youngest kid inside the clock. He tells her what happened and they decide to go look for the wolf. They soon find him, still fast asleep, and the mother goat tells her youngest child to get a pair of scissors, a needle and some thread, with which they cut open the wolf's belly. The six goat children jump out, alive and well. Then the goats fill up the wolf's belly with rocks and the mother sews it back up again. The goats hide and the wolf finally wakes up, feeling thirsty. He goes to the well (in some versions, the river), but falls in and drowns under the weight of the rocks.

"The Wolf and the Seven Young Kids" is a well-known {{fairy tale}} written down by the Creator/BrothersGrimm. The story has a few parallels with "Literature/LittleRedRidingHood" and "Literature/TheThreeLittlePigs". Indeed, given the differences between CharlesPerrault's ''Little Red Riding Hood'' and Creator/TheBrothersGrimm's, folklorist suspect it was an influence.

A mother goat leaves her seven little kids home alone before she goes out to get some food. She warns them not to open the door for anyone, especially not TheBigBadWolf. Soon enough, after she leaves, the wolf tries to get in. He pretends to be their mother, but is betrayed by his gruff voice. The wolf leaves and returns a little later, this time using a sweet, light voice to impersonate their mother. At first the seven little kids think it really is their mother, but then they ask her to stick her paw in front of the window (in some accounts they see it under a crack in the door) and notice his big, black feet. They refuse to open the door and the wolf leaves again, this time going to the bakery (in some versions, the miller) to whiten his paw in flour. He returns and fools the little kids because they see his white paw and think it's their mother. The wolf jumps into the house and gobbles up six of the seven kids- the youngest one is able to hide inside a large standing clock. The wolf's big meal has made him sleepy, so he leaves and settles down under a tree for a nice long nap. When the mother goat returns, she discovers her house is a mess and finds her youngest kid inside the clock. He tells her what happened and they decide to go look for the wolf. They find him outside, fast asleep, and the mother goat tells her youngest child to get a pair of scissors, a needle and some thread, with which they cut open the wolf's belly. The six goat children jump out, alive and well. Then the goats fill up the wolf's belly with rocks and the mother sews it back up again. The goats hide and the wolf finally wakes up, feeling thirsty.

* Bowdlerise: Some versions have the wolf [[BagOfKidnapping tie the kids up in a sack]] rather than eating them, he then falls asleep because the sack is heavy.

* ArtisticLicenseBiology: Six goats swallowed alive? The mother who is able to perform surgery without anesthetics (though to be fair the wolf already ''was'' taking a nap at the time)? Huge rocks put back into the belly? The wolf still being able to move after swallowing huge stones?
