Long-Lost Tim Burton Adaptation of 'Hansel and Gretel' Surfaces Online

The story behind Tim Burton’s “Hansel and Gretel” is perhaps just as fascinating as his treatment of the classic children’s story itself. On Halloween night 1983, Burton’s “Hansel and Gretel” aired on Disney Channel for what would be the first and last time. In the early ‘80s, Burton was a young animator at Disney who’s work also included shorts “Vincent” (1982) and the original “Frankenweenie” (1984). Burton was said to have been eventually fired from Disney, because, well, even then his vision was already too dark for the company. And so his “bizarre” adaptation of “Hansel and Gretel” faded into obscurity, with rumors surfacing that it was lost. A claim even went as far as saying that it never existed!

However, come 2009, “Hansel and Gretel” was once again screened to the public as part of the Museum of Modern Art’s Tim Burton retrospective. And today, “Hansel and Gretel” is finally available online for everyone to see!

And so, for your viewing pleasure, below is the full 34-minute long Burton-esque “Hansel and Gretel”!

    Mr. Tim Burton's adaptation of " Hansel and Gretel " in this 34-minute video, may actually be made for adults and not for children. Back in school, we study the life of a person in order to understand, why the works of the person is that way. I read in an article that, the roots of some of the famous children's stories were actually made by adult persons for adults also. That was a very long time ago. Now, back to Mr. Tim Burton's adaptation of " Hansel and Gretel " video: The back ground music amplifies the strangeness of this piece of work. The piano artist interprets the musical piece strangely also.
