Reading Grimms Fairy Tales

Doc reads Grimm's Fairy Tales to his sons.

Grimm's Fairy Tales (also referred to Grimms' Fairy Tales) is the common English title of Children's and Household Tales (in German: Kinder- und Hausmärchen), a collection of German fairy tales first published in 1812 by the Grimm brothers, Jacob and Wilhelm.

In the 1890s, Dr. Emmett Brown read Grimm's Fairy Tales to his sons, Jules and Verne.

Behind the scenes[]

  • Although the collection is called Grimms' Fairy Tales (possessive plural form) on Wikipedia, the title of the copy read by Doc in Back to the Future: Untold Tales and Alternate Timelines 5 is clearly shown to be Grimm's Fairy Tales (possessive singular form) — which has therefore been adopted here.
