If you can believe it, the Brothers Grimm actually made this story a lot nicer than it was when they got their hands on it. Little Red simply strips naked, gets in bed, and then dies, eaten up by the big bad wolf, with no miraculous relief in another version, she eats her own grandmother first, her flesh cooked up and her blood poured into a wine glass by our wolfish friend.

The Grimm version is basically the same, but in an early French version, called The Lost Children, the witch is the Devil, and the Devil wants to bleed the children on a sawhorse.

Well, in the Grimm version, she does, a little too often, to a prince, and winds up pregnant, innocently remarking to her jailer witch that her clothes feel too tight.
