* AdultFear: The Mother goat comes home to find her house has been broken into, and all but one of her children have been (presumably) killed and eaten by a wolf. She then has to witness the wolf having a BalloonBelly with her still living children inside. Thankfully, she proves quite the MamaBear...



* AndIMustScream: Narrowly averted for the young goats, who are all swallowed whole and nearly are doomed to suffocate and digest in the wolf’s stomach.



* BalloonBelly: In most versions the wolf has a large stomach after eating the six kids.



* EatenAlive: When the mother goat finds the sleeping wolf, his stomach is jostling around, as the six children he just ate are still very much alive inside.



* JustEatHim

to:

* JustEatHim JustEatHim: The wolf actually does this and immediately devours six of the goats.


Added DiffLines:

* VillainousGlutton: The Wolf, who is delighted after eating six whole baby goats in one sitting and in most versions of the story briefly looks for more to eat before giving up.

* HeavySleeper: After eating the kids, the wolf decides to take a nap outside- and he somehow sleeps through his own stomach being cut open and sowed back up. Sure he ate six whole kids so him quickly getting tired and quickly finding a spot to nap is understandable, but come on!

"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, folklorists suspect it was an influence.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.
