Western Animation / JJ Villard's Fairy Tales

Go To
What do you get when you take the Fractured Fairy Tale trope and combine it with the mind of the creator of King Star King? Complete insanity.

From JJ Villard comes JJ Villard's Fairy Tales. A horror/comedy anthology cartoon series on [adult swim]. Taking Grimm fables like Rapunzel, Snow White and Red Riding Hood, and injecting a healthy amount of subliminal messages, gore and total madness.

  • Freeze-Frame Bonus: Each episode has random subliminal messages that occur in a split-second.
  • Gender Flip: Rapunzel is a boy named Boypunzel.
  • Gorn: Like Villard's other show King Star King, lots of gruesome violence and deaths are in this show.
  • Grossout Show: The pilot alone has a character making statues out of bird droppings and having to drink pus for sustenance.
  • Stylistic Suck: The animation, specifically the walking, is deliberately cheap-looking.
  • Subverted Kids' Show: Family-friendly fairy tales, these are not. In fact, in spite of all the gore and weirdness, a lot of the stories are much truer in tone to the original source material.
