YMMV / Revolting Rhymes

  • Acceptable Targets: Rich people and anyone from the upper classes. All are shown to be murderous sociopaths with a total disregard for anyone who isn't themselves.
  • Family-Unfriendly Aesop: Most of the tales have this. In Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Snow White steals the Queen's magic mirror and so the dwarfs, who are all gamblers with debts, can use it to accurately predict which horses will win races the following day. Because they know exactly which horses will win every time the dwarfs and Snow White end up becoming millionaires through gambling.
    Which shows that gambling's not a sin
    Provided that you always win.
    • Arguably, Cinderella has a relatively ordinary Aesop, where Cinderella decides to marry a good man who is a jam maker rather than marry someone just because he happens to be a wealthy prince.
  • Les Yay: The BBC adaptation is loaded with this between Red Riding Hood and Snow White.
  • Think of the Children!: The reaction most Moral Guardians have to the Cinderella story, because the word "slut" appears in one of the lines. This is the same story that had a picture of Prince "Charming" chopping off a woman's head.
  • Time Skip: When the Fairy Godmother saves Cindy from the Prince and transports her to Jack's jam shop some time has obviously passed as before their stories had been taking place simultaneously on a bright sunny day it's now snowing and Jack's had time to build a successful business. It makes sense when you catch onto the strong implication that Wolf made the ending up to appease the children, and Cinderella actually just died there.
  • Visual Effects of Awesome: The BBC adaptation is an All-CGI Cartoon made to look like Stop Motion.
