Thumbelina's life is already difficult. She lives in early modern Denmark and is no bigger than her mom's thumb. Oh, and also, everyone wants to marry her. And by everyone, I mean everyone. Frog moms want her to marry their sons and, somehow, the story gets stranger from there. In true Hans Christian Andersen fashion, this fairy tale for children about a girl being born from a flower and trying to find love contains kidnapping, death threats, crushing nihilism, and sleazy moles. Childhood was different back in the 1800s.
The creature are shrimp fries! But you have to act now or they'll be gone...oh, wait...no. My bad. They died 200 years ago.

i watched thumbelina the other day after not watching it for years since my childhood and i remember the movie always made me feel anxious ? or just unsettled me in a certain way but after rewatching it recently i’m like i get why now………… i felt soo uncomfortable because thumbelinas character is so child like, i mean obviously it’s a child’s movie but the way she acted was you know clearly very young and all the characters that tried to marry her/kidnap her their characters are clearly like older men minus the prince i guess but still suspicious on his part 🤨and idk it just made me so uncomfy realizing that they gave of p*sophie vibes
Where can I learn more about these shrimps that taste like French fries? Googling leads me to recipes for fried shrimp but nothing on this episode’s creature of the week.

If I was Thumbelina, I would take everything and be all ” yea..umm..I gotta take everything and build..umm..something. .and then it’s on..so come back in like..10 years” nasty ass wanna be husbands.
