This month is really about children’s literature. So I feel a little like I’m cheating when my fact today is about a film. However, “Hansel and Gretel” is so well known, I had to do a little digging to find something obscure enough to be surprising. Of course “Hansel and Gretel” has seen a number of adaptions, but one I hadn’t seen was Tim Burton‘s 1982 television adaptation. It is even more crazy than you would imagine. Luckily you can watch it on YouTube and appreciate the insanity and delightfully creepy Tim Burton aesthetic.
