Tangled Up


Tangled Up is really Britannica’s Tales Around the World Rapunzel but in 2012 a company called Brightspark Productions slapped a Disney rip off cover on it. So we also have the Rapunzel like stories of Fenchelchen and when King Solomon put his daughter in a tower.

    What is up with all those witches that grow a garden and those parents that just can’t stop themselves from eating vegetables !!!

    Video Brinquedo’s The Little Cars….. Don’t ask me why, but I prefer it a million times over the thing it’s ripping off.

    Pretty questionable business tactics for a company that used to be the top respectable encyclopedia brand.

    This art makes me think of so many things…. Dilbert, Witch Hazel from Merry Melodies, The people you talk to in Broderbund’s Where in the World is Carmen SanDiego game, Minerva Mink/Mindy hybrid from Animaniacs, the fat horse wham What’s Opera Doc.

    I’m pretty sure the flying on a broomstick is way less taxing on a body than a 4 story climb on a rope of hair.

    ::Fenchelchen turns a spoon into a frog::  She latter changed her name to Girono Giovanna & ran away to Italy.

    Getting artistic whiplash from the 3rd one, going back & forth between caricature & near photo realism.

      Oh….I see that there’s a JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure fan in the comments……..

      Did Phelous manage to get a hold of some leaked footage of a couple of future episodes of the Part 5: Vento Aureo/Golden Wind adaptation from David Production? Couldn’t he be in serious trouble for that? (I know am I joking but….)

        Well, speaking of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, a part of me wants to see Phelous review the 1993-2002 OVA based on Part 3: Stardust Crusaders. It’s pretty hard to find a decent copy of it on DVD nowadays due to reasons I won’t talk about but I think you can find the whole series on YouTube and a couple of other websites though.

          I’d probably watch it on VHS. I’ve sworn not to watch any of the animes or OAVs until I’ve completely finished the manga.

    It’s another Felous Phriday with special guest Pat Morita.

    Behold!

    The circle is complete, our fate is in the stars – not in your hands, and you’ve got your chocolate in my peanut butter.

    Brightspark obviously didn’t employ many bright sparks or they would have known better then to incur the wrath of the Mouse House. Geez, they even tried to replicate the Tangled font.

    Nothing in this set that’s as interesting as Wednesday Addams-esque Beauty, but these Britannica collections are ambitious and at least offer some interesting moments. It’s way more then what Bevanfield could muster.

    Nice to see that Rather Dashing gets married to a girl who can do magic. Maybe she can help him take down Trogdor once and for all.

    The voice of Rapunzel in the 1st story sounds a bit like Serena’s/Usagi’s/Sailor Moon’s voice in Cloverway’s English dub of Sailor Moon.

    Was the “fennel” in “Fenchelchen” actually just cannabis/marijuana and was the author high on it when he/she wrote it? That would explain a lot about that story really. Also, was the animation for it originally going to be some cutscenes for a Phillips CD-I game based on the “Fenchelchen” tale itself? Because it sure feels like it.

      I read that fennel eaten in large quantities simulates estrogen. I guess a pregnant woman with a hormone deficiency would crave that sort of thing.
