I just saw Tangled for the first time and while I absolutely found it to be sweet and enjoyable, I also found myself thinking that now would be a good time to tell people about the original story since Disney traditionally deviates substantially from the original tales and, sticklers for tradition that they are, Tangled was no exception.

So, I’m working out a rough script to make tomorrow’s Teaching Tuesday video and I don’t want to give everything away in print here, but, I will tell you, as a teaser, that Rapunzel was named for a breed of radish.
