Welcome to Topher Goggin's totally irreverent, mega-sarcastic fairy tale recaps for grown-ups, with laugh out loud "news" stories thrown in for good measure. This is definitely not your mother's goose.
Cinderella, Goldilocks and the Three Bears, The Little Red Hen
We start with the granddaddy of all fairy tales, as we load up the pumpkin for a carriage ride with Cinderella. Then we'll bust into the bears house with Goldilocks, bake with the Little Red Hen, and listen a group of "real" people frantically try to tell Jack and the Beanstalk with no time to think through how the story goes. We'll also meet the world's premiere fairy tale personal injury lawyer (he got Humpty Dumpty $500k), and fire up Rapunzel's Jukebox for a Rick Roll.
Episode 10: Alice in Wonderland, Rip Van Winkle, and Disney Parks "News"
We'll get the ins and outs of Alice and Wonderland by checking out Alice's, uh, "Wikipedia" page, learn that the Bremen Town Musicians were actually and animal-based Neighborhood Watch that didn't make it to Bremen (who knew?), and snooze with Rip Van Winkle. Real Disney blogger Herb from "World of Walt" makes a guest appearance with some definitely not real Disney news, and NBC reboots The Golden Girls in the world of fairy tales.
Episode 9: The Three Little Pigs, The Jungle Book, The Sword in the Stone
The Big Bad Wolf returns to wreak havoc on the Three Little Pigs, Mowgli tours the animal kingdom in the Jungle Book, and we'll find England a new king via the Sword in the Stone. We'll also have some stone soup, check out Paul Bunyan's new Big and Tall Shop, and get the Little Red Hen some "Help" with Andrew Mitchell on Rapunzel's Jukebox.
Episode 8 - Rapunzel, Rumpelstiltskin, The Princess and the Pea
It's tower time - we'll climb the stairs with Rapunzel and try to spin up some gold with the miller's daughter in Rumpelstiltskin. Try to get a good snooze with the Princess and the Pea, but if you can't sleep, you'll be able to fire up your phone and scroll through Humpty Dumpty's Facebook News Feed.
Episode 7: Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Little Red Riding Hood
It's a nap-friendly episode, with both Snow White and Sleeping Beauty snoozing along. Then we'll learn about John Henry, walk to grandma's with Little Red Riding Hood, and take a crash course in how to give-a-dog-a-bone with a Masterclass in Knick Knack. Finally, Andrew Mitchell returns on Rapunzel's Jukebox, with a folksy ode to the bad guys called 'Will Villains Ever Win?"
Episode 6: Little Mermaid, Fox & the Hound, Aladdin
Join us under the sea to hear the real story about the Little Mermaid, or above ground to revisit the Fox the Hound, or in the sky to connect with the true Aladdin. Plus, hear about Little Red Riding Hood's new movie deal and other news you can't use.
