** These shorts would either focus on one story ("Little Red Walking Hood" and "Cinderella Meets Fella"), while others contained many short stories ("A Gander at Mother Goose" and "Foney Fables").
** One of Creator/ChuckJones' last WB cartoons, "I Was a Teenage Thumb", a blithely absurdist telling of "Literature/TomThumb", was light-years apart from one of his first, the maudlin, Disney-esque "Tom Thumb in Trouble".

* Some of the Advertising/{{GEICO}} fairy tales ads for the department that does stuff like renters insurance are this, such as retelling of "Ba Ba Black Sheep" in which a guy doesn't have any wool because all of his wool sweaters, as well as his flat-screen television and other stuff were stolen by some hooligan. Fortunately, he had the renters insurance, so they replaced it all and later the guy whole stole the stuff was caught selling it online and arrested.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Shrek}}'', which makes the ogre the main character, the damsel anything but in distress, and the Prince Charming the villain, even coming with a subversion of TrueLovesKiss. The beginning says it all, really, starting with a generic fairytale storybook that almost immediately gets used as toilet paper. ''WesternAnimation/{{Shrek 2}}'' ups the ante by making the Fairy Godmother a villain as well, who is bound and determined to undo Shrek and Fiona's happy ending because [[FantasticRacism "ogres don't live happily ever after."]]
