This should probably mention Fables somewhere.

- The entry mentions that the Snow White and Rose Red it elaborates on are completely separate from the "mainstream" Snow White. The Vertigo comic series Fables reintroduces both of them to a contemporary audience as sisters, but furthermore incorporates the "Disneyfied" status of Snow White as part of her characterization, thus contradicting this Wiki entry's take on them being completely separate fairy tales. That would certainly rate a popular culture notation in the entry. Homoaffectional (talk) 02:13, 1 August 2011 (UTC)

The entry explains that the two Snowhite charakters should not be seen as one and the same - which is true. But even in German the two characters used to have the same name. Schneewittchen (Snowwhite); Schneeweißchen (Snowwhite & Rosered) Both German names translate as Snowwhite. In the old northern German dialekts Snowwhite was called "Sneewittchen" wich later became "Schneewittchen" in Standart-German. In South Germany Snowwhite was called "Schneeweißchen". So in German it's common to use this two different spellings to different between the two Snowwhites. But now adays that the northern dialekt (low-german) has mostly vanisched even many germans couldn't tell that "wittchen" means "weißchen". In fact for them the two Snowwhites have different names.

This says Aarne-Thompson type 426 but the http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aarne-Thompson page would suggest that this is incorrect. One or the other may be wrong? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 18:14, 3 October 2009 (UTC)
As previously stated
Second sentence "It was not written down in the seventeenth century by Charles Perrault as previously stated".
- It meant "as previously stated on an earlier version of this Wikipedia page". Per WP:SELFREF, that kind of information is not notable. The assertion that it was first written down by Charles Perrault was inserted by this 28 September 2011 edit and denied by this 19 April 2013 edit.
- I have removed the sentence and its references; a Ladybird-book factsheet is not sufficiently reliable even to be worth refuting; and refuting it with reference to a primary source is inadequate. In any case, the subsequent (cited) mention of Caroline Stahl prove it was not Perrault; I have added Stahl's dates to show she lived after Perrault. jnestorius(talk) 14:31, 27 April 2016 (UTC)
