A traditional Japanese fairy tale (similar to type 480), as translated or retold by: Treasure Finders Murder One Another. The most common form of ostention, what Carl Lindahl calls "ostensive play" (Lindahl 2005, 164), is "legend-tripping": visiting a local site reputed to be haunted or otherwise supernaturally unusual (such as "gravity hills," where cars roll uphill), in hopes of a spooky thrill ( note 11 ). The film’s trademark song is “Someday My Prince Will Come.” The prince – and, Zipes asserts by Freudian extension, Disney himself – “takes all the credit as champion of the disenfranchised.” That sexism was already manifest in the Grimms’ version is something Zipes is now evidently very willing to ignore.

Through her careful examination of these tales, Knapp shows that people in past eras suffered from such supposedly “modern” problems as alienation and identity crises and went through harrowing ordeals before experiencing some sort of fulfillment. Shutika goes into detail about the memorials they set up, in their village of origin, to themselves and their families by preserving for decades their pre-migration houses, called casas vacias (vacant houses) which in reality are full of their life stories and dreams.

In Mike Artell’s Petite Rouge (Puffin, 2003), set in the Louisiana bayou, Little Red Riding Hood (Petite Rouge) is a duck, sent to bring her sick Grandma a basket of gumbo and boudin (sausage), but warned to steer clear of the nasty gator, Claude. Folklore is compacted wisdom literature that yields more information with each reading. Koven expands these definitions further, in a way obviously relevant to Supernatural: "any legend text dramatized through popular culture…is also a kind of ostension, particularly when we are shown the narrative through actions rather than having the story retold to us through narration"; he calls this phenomenon "mass-mediated ostension" (2008, 139).
