  • Adaptation Displacement: These days this particular Grimm fairy tale is relatively obscure, however fans of Baron Munchausen will recognize the Baron’s companions share some of the same extraordinary abilities. German writer Gottfried August Burger (1747-1794) reworked Baron Munchausen's narrative of his marvellous travels and campaigns in Russia for German readers around 1786, and elaborated on the original work by Rudolf Erich Raspe by adding the characters from this fairy tale. These new allies of the Baron did make it into other adaptations such as Jean Image's animated Baron films, and the 1988 Terry Gilliam film.
