If I remember my Classics Juniors correctly, the simpleton is carrying the goose and anyone who touches it, gets stuck to it, as if magnetized. But I don't know why.

Humpty Dumpty isn't necessarily an egg. It never specifies.
+1

Yes, but most people have seen him portrayed as an egg, and that is how he is typically portrayed, even though it doesn't really specify. So most people typically think of Humpty Dumpty as an egg.

Correct. nowhere in the rhyme does it say he's an egg. also I'm very surprised rip van winkle is so low with so many US quizzers.

Please accept frog for frog prince. I tried bullfrog, toad, princess and the frog, etc.

I agree! I tried "frog" and "princess and the frog", I didn't get it.

The question specifically says, and I quote, "Amphibian who transforms when kissed" not, "What is the name of the story when a girl kisses a frog and he becomes a prince" where the answer would be The Princess and the Frog, but it specifies it being the "amphibian who transforms when kissed" so it has to be frog prince. Sorry to be nit picky but I just can't help it.

I put "princess" for "Stock character who is the object of female fantasies" since the stereotype is little girls wanting to be a princess. Just read the clue wrong I guess.

The fairy tale never says Humpty Dumpty was an egg.

It developed into a riddle and so it wouldn't give the answer in the rhyme. My old Mother Goose book includes Humpty Dumpty as a riddle and answers "egg" after the rhyme.

You should accept "Melvin" for the little mermaid because I think she should be called Melvin.

I got stuck on Rip Van Winkle but got it at the last second when I remembered the Flintstones episode where Fred fell asleep for 40 years (he was dreaming)! Great Quiz!!

Hi - nice quiz, but why specifically Prince Charming? I tried Handsome Prince, Prince, etc., and none would work. A lot of these fairy tales don't use Prince Charming", just a prince or handsome prince.

You should accept the Princess and the Frog, after the Disney movie came out, nobody says "The Frog Prince."

But it's asking specifically for the character. The character is not "The Princess and the Frog."

I don't think it should be "Stock character who is the object of female fantasies", because who is going to get that? Maybe you should say something like "Prince who is the hero in stories such as Sleeping Beauty, and Snow White and the Seven Dwarves" I know that's kind of long, but who would get "stock character who is the object of female fantasies

"because who is going to get that?"

I'd say about 53% of people.

Which to behonest, is weirdly low, because Im pretty sure most recognize the answer. Not saying that it needs to be changed though. Sometimes having to figure stuff out a bit is not a bad thing (though not my favorite clue. Never ever has been my fantasy... ugh, I never wanted to be a princess or get a a prince charming, I'd rescue myself thank you very much, not gonna wait and sit pretty because of being to scared to brake a nail or whatever. I'd slay the dragon myself, well actually I wont I like dragons. That would be a fantasy which resonate more with me, taming the dragon and then flying away with it (Pre all the tv hype show about dragons) )

I'd never heard of Rip Van Winkle before now. Looks like a US tale. Good quiz though.
