Iconic fairy tales which still used as metaphor of cartoon

Iconic fairy tales and characters which still used as a metaphor for satire and political cartoons.

Even before the dawn of cartoons, fairy tales have been told and shared with children in as early as the 2nd century and unlike our current cartoon-style art renditions, their fairy tales where illustrated much differently. Here are examples of some Iconic fairy tales and characters which still used as a metaphor for satire and political cartoons. Add, if we missed any.

      #3 The Emperor’s New Clothes

      The Emperor’s New Clothes

      "The Emperor's New Clothes" (Danish: Kejserens nye klæder) is a short tale written by Danish author Hans Christian Andersen, about two weavers who promise an emperor a new suit of clothes that they say is invisible to those who are unfit for their positions, stupid, or incompetent – while in reality, they make no clothes at all, making everyone believe the clothes are invisible to them. When the emperor parades before his subjects in his new "clothes", no one dares to say that they do not see any suit of clothes on him for fear that they will be seen as stupid. Finally, a child cries out, "But he isn't wearing anything at all!"
