The talking, living wooden puppet with a lie-induced nose growth disorder you saw in Disney was a far milder version than the original story, which portrayed him being burned, hanged, mutilated, and eventually sentenced to death for his shenanigans.
The original Cinderella fairy tale is completely disgusting. When neither of her stepsisters can fit into Cindy’s slipper, one of them cuts off her toe and the other cuts off her heel to fool the prince.

Damn, Cinderella, you bad.
