Some sample questions from this category:

* The name 'Cinderella' is actually a kinder version of what original 'title'?
* In the original tale of 'The Little Mermaid,' mermaids do not have souls, but they become foam upon the water. Because she took her life instead of the prince's, she is given the chance to enter heaven. What must she do in order to gain this admittance?
* In 'Aladdin and the Wonderful Lamp', Aladdin's wishes are never given a limit. Not only that, there are two objects which house wish-granting genies: a lamp and what else?
* In 'Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,' we are given the death of the Queen as her falling off a cliff. But originally Snow ordered shoes to be put on her mother as a punishment. What kind of shoes were they?
* In the original tale of Pinocchio, we see him as an ungrateful little brat from the beginning. Not shown in the film, what does Pinocchio do to Geppetto as he is being carved?
