Show Notes

This painting, “The Mermaid” by John William Waterhouse, is one reason I believe Ariel from Disney’s “The Little Mermaid” was given red hair, since Hans Christian Andersen never described the little mermaid’s hair color in his fairy tale.

03 – Sleeping Beauty

Podcast cover
Read more

“Sleeping Beauty” is one of the most popular fairy tales of all time. The story with its many varied renditions and adaptations has intrigued readers and audiences for centuries.  It has been told and retold continuously in movies, plays, novels and poetry, resonating with our ancestors as well as our own generations.

If you have any specific concerns about this podcast or our position on the fair use defense, please contact us at DSOPodcast@gmail.com so we can discuss amicably.  Thank you.

In this episode Disney’s Sleeping Beauty is compared to the two versions of the fairy tale that Disney based their film on; “La Belle au bois dormant” (“The Beauty Sleeping in the Wood”) by Charles Perrault published in his “Stories from Past Times” published in 1697, and “Dornröschen” (“The Little Briar Rose) in their “Children’s and Household Tales” (“Kinder- und Hausmärchen”), published in 1812.

Comparisons are also made to the earliest writings of the “Sleeping Beauty” tale,  the “Histoire de Troïlus et de Zellandine, (Troylus and Zellandine)” an episode contained in “Le Roman de Perceforest (Book III, chapter lii)” written between 1330 and 1344, as well as “Sun, Moon and Talia” by Giambattista Basile in his 1634 work, “The Pentamerone”.

Recommended Reading:

Sleeping Beauties: Sleeping Beauty and Snow White Tales From Around the World (Surlalune Fairy Tales Series) – If the information I used in this episode didn’t come directly from this book, the book showed me where else to go for more information. It’s a wonderful book, with pretty much every “Sleeping Beauty” and “Snow White” story there is — highly recommended for anyone who wants to dig deep into these two fairy tales.

07a – Alice In Wonderland Part 1

Podcast cover
Read more

On July 4th, 1862 ten year old Alice Liddell and her sisters Ina and Edith set out from Folly Bridge in a row boat with the 30-year-old Charles Lutwidge Dodgeson.  During their trip, Alice asked him to tell them a story, and in his vast imagination, Dodgeson conjured up a whimsical tale about a young girl, named Alice, who followed a white rabbit down a rabbit hole.

Alice loved it so much she begged him to write it down for her. His improvised yarn would become “Alice’s Adventures Under Ground”, which would then become a classic of nonsense literature “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland”.

Dive down the rabbit hole with me as I discuss the story origin of Disney’s “Alice in Wonderland”.

The story of Aladdin is one of the most familiar narratives in all of literature, a classic ‘rags to riches’ tale featuring a young hero who has to learn an important lesson; an exotic setting; a good healthy dose of magic; a beautiful heroine; and an evil villain (or two, depending on which version of the story you follow).In this episode I’ll discuss the differences between Disney’s “Aladdin” and “Aladdin or His Magical Lamp” as told by Queen Scheherazade in the original “One Thousand and One Nights”, telling each story side by side.

04a – Mulan Part 1

Podcast cover
Read more

The story of Mulan is one of the most mundane of all Chinese folktales. In Ancient China, with folklore rife with magic, Gods, Demons, Dragons and all kinds of supernatural influences, it was the plausibility of Mulan that made it such a compelling story.

Though her story has changed through the centuries, its core elements remain constant.

A young girl’s elderly and sickly father is called up in the draft. He is too old, and ill to go off to fight, but they have no alternative. The father must go to war. Mulan decides to serve in his place. To do so, she will need to disguise herself as a man.

This episode discusses the differences between Dinsey’s Mulan, and the Mulan from the varied Chinese legends.

07a – Alice In Wonderland Part 1

Podcast cover
Read more

On July 4th, 1862 ten year old Alice Liddell and her sisters Ina and Edith set out from Folly Bridge in a row boat with the 30-year-old Charles Lutwidge Dodgeson.  During their trip, Alice asked him to tell them a story, and in his vast imagination, Dodgeson conjured up a whimsical tale about a young girl, named Alice, who followed a white rabbit down a rabbit hole.

Alice loved it so much she begged him to write it down for her. His improvised yarn would become “Alice’s Adventures Under Ground”, which would then become a classic of nonsense literature “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland”.

Dive down the rabbit hole with me as I discuss the story origin of Disney’s “Alice in Wonderland”.

Supplemental #04 – The True Origin of “Alice”

Podcast cover
Read more

The origin story of “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland”, the story people tend to hear, about Lewis Carroll and Alice Liddell rowing up the river while in improvises a story to entertain her is only half the story. Like past supplemental episodes, it’s a story I want to tell, but it just wanders too far away from the purpose of the main episode, so it is now a supplemental episode, that may lend you some extra insight, when the main episode drops.

Show Notes

This painting, “The Mermaid” by John William Waterhouse, is one reason I believe Ariel from Disney’s “The Little Mermaid” was given red hair, since Hans Christian Andersen never described the little mermaid’s hair color in his fairy tale.

05b – Aladdin Part 2

Podcast cover
Read more

In our last episode, we left both Disney’s Aladdin and Shahdazad’s Aladdin sealed within a deep treasure trove. Disney called it The Cave of Wonders, and in the One Thousand and One Nights it is the Cave of Treasure.

To all appearances, that should’ve been the end of the story and there shouldn’t have been anything left to say about Aladdin. And if only the greedy and anxious villains in both Disney’s and Shahadazad’s stories, had been a little more even-tempered and patient, and helped Aladdin out of the cave, it would have been.

In this episode I’ll continue the story of “Aladdin or His Magical Lamp” as told in the “One Thousand and One Nights” compilation of Arabic folk and fairy tales, discussing the differences between Disney’s “Aladdin” and Antoine GallandQueen Scheherazade in the original “One Thousand and One Nights”, telling each story side by side.

Supplemental #02 – Djinn

Podcast cover
Read more

I tried to squeeze the whole subject of Jinn into Aladdin Part 2, but to do so would kill the momentum of the Aladdin story, so I decided this should be another supplemental. And since you all like the first supplemental about Shahadazad so much, supplemental episodes may become a regular thing.


When you do a little research about Jinn, one thing you may find interesting is that people in the Middle East, and in the west have encountered a species of intelligent beings. They can change their shapes, can fly through the air and can even render themselves invisible. They watch us, study us and react to us. Occasionally they abduct people for purposes we can only speculate about.

The story of Aladdin is one of the most familiar narratives in all of literature, a classic ‘rags to riches’ tale featuring a young hero who has to learn an important lesson; an exotic setting; a good healthy dose of magic; a beautiful heroine; and an evil villain (or two, depending on which version of the story you follow).In this episode I’ll discuss the differences between Disney’s “Aladdin” and “Aladdin or His Magical Lamp” as told by Queen Scheherazade in the original “One Thousand and One Nights”, telling each story side by side.
