I can't believe I've never heard this story before. I can't wait to tell it to my nieces and nephew, thanks!

What I like most about this tale is the interpretation of what had happened from the wolfs perspective. The man blowing into a stick and pulling out a rib. This shows a 3rd lesson about story telling from first time experiences describing actions and tools that you have never seen or handled before. It reminds me of a joke from the cowboy comedian Jeff Foxworthy about a fish explaining being caught by a fishermen to his friend as if it was an out of body experience. "So there I was, Swimming around. All of the sudden I was being drawn towards this bright light. There was God wearing a flannel shirt and a Budweiser hat. All my dead relatives all around. And God spoke to me saying 'It's not your time yet, go back' ". It kind of puts the narrative of our "mythological" stories into perspective. Our ancestors experiencing things they did not fully understand and describing them the best they can while creating all of these fantastic creatures that today no one knows how anyone could have ever believed in things like that. Thank you for sharing this story.

Classic Germanic Tale formula; knowledge, followed by lack of knowledge, followed by a lesson from not learning that knowledge.

I always enjoy the way these types of fairy tales address the recipient while still keeping them removed from the story.

Wow, I had completely forgotten this fairy tale! I only read it once, when I was about 8 years old, and I've never heard it mentioned anywhere since then... Thank you for bringing a long forgotten memory back to me! :)

Interesting, I've never heard of this fairy tale before.
I think I understand the morals of this story, but I can't help but feel sorry for the wolf, I can't stand the thought of an animal getting hurt. LOL

y'know I've always wondered why in so many of these old fairytales the wolf is the final boss?
the 3 little pigs,
little red riding hood,
the 7 little goats,
always with the wolf as the main antagonist. mebbe you can tackle that in a future video. if you want. no rush on my part.

Thanks I've heard a different version years. Thanks for the tell.

you could also add be cautious of knowledge you can receive from someone else because they might trick you into something like the fox technically did.

And the wolf said, "What's a hatchet?"
Because he had already clearly shown that he didn't understand human tools.
