** It also mentions a WickedWitch who, rather than [[BewitchedAmphibians turning people into frogs]] and [[Literature/HanselAndGretel having a house made of gingerbread]], turned people into ''gingerbread'' and had a house made of ''frogs''.

* The trope namer is the "Fractured Fairy Tales" segment from ''WesternAnimation/RockyAndBullwinkle''. In each episode, a different fairy tale was retold with a humorous effect, changing part of the plotline.

* ''Literature/{{Melisande}}: or, Long and Short Division'' by Literature/ENesbit is a highly inventive and somewhat tongue-in-cheek retelling of "Literature/{{Rapunzel}}", or is it "Literature/SleepingBeauty"? Just to start, the king is GenreSavvy and knows better than to throw a christening party that will inevitably leave one fairy out and piss her off, but it doesn't stop the princess from being cursed to be bald. Fortunately, the king has a spare wish from his fairy godmother, but the princess's careless wish for golden hair that will grow faster the more it's cut leads to predictable problems, and it takes several attempts and the logic of a wise prince to make her hair stop growing without making ''her'' [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever grow into a giant]] (ItMakesSenseInContext; read [[http://www.surlalunefairytales.com/rapunzel/shortstories/melisande.html the online tale]] for the full story!).

* Creator/JimHenson's ''[[Film/TalesFromMuppetlandTheFrogPrince Frog Prince]]'' contains traces of this. ''Film/HeyCinderella!'' very cleanly fits the bill, between the ridiculously over-the-top [[LargeHam hamminess]] of the stepmother, the [[TheDitz dippiness]] of the Prince, the running gag of how bad the fairy godmother is at magic, and Kermit's GenreSavvy nature [[CassandraTruth being ignored]]. Oh, and there's the ball itself, which features a large number of Muppet monsters (and Santa Claus) and basically serves as a precursor to the ballroom dancing sketches from ''Series/TheMuppetShow''.



** ''Glass'' retells "Literature/{{Cinderella}}". The story gives Cinderella a secret that causes the Prince to have her executed in one ending, and even the happy ending is quite atypical in its treatment of the Prince and Cinderella's relationship. Additionally, all plot happens in one room, and you play pet parrot that is [[FunnyAnimal trying to]] [[ShipperOnDeck match up]] [[GenreSavvy classic pair]].
