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.


  • All Adult Animation Is South Park: Tons of violence, swearing, dark humor, and purposefully-crappy animation? All recipes of this trope is in full display in this show.
  • Black Comedy: This show's sense of humor is of a twisted nature.
  • Bloody Hilarious: Many of the jokes are about characters dying in a over-the-top fashion.
  • Deranged Animation: Downplayed, as the animation style is nowhere near as trippy and chaotic as King Star King.
  • Evil All Along: Snow White turns out to be working with the evil queen the entire episode.
  • Fractured Fairy Tale: The most concise description.

  • 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.
  • Surreal Horror: The series is this in spades.
  • Subverted Kids Show: Family-friendly fairy tales, these are not.
