I completely blanked this scene from my mind. That's pretty fucking creepy for a child to watch, but we used to raise tougher children. My parents would read me the original Grimm's with all the amputations and murders, and maybe that's why I love them so much.
Please stop yelling at me.
I'm one of the rare few proud owners of a Child Catcher action figure. It's staring down at me now. I have often wondered how much of Marilyn Manson's act is directly stolen from this guy.
Also, Benny Hill cameo.

That's good parenting.
"Oh no here comes that child-catcher person. Don't go there, kids! Don't! Oh no, if only I could do something more than stand and yell..."
That's not their parent. Their parent and his true-love-of-two-days are concurrently in the castle of the child-hating king, putting on a deeply disturbing song and dance number involving robot fetishization.
You don't have to be someone's actual parent to parent them.
That's right, I like to verb words.
Q: Did you hear about the Jewish pedophile?
A: He was offering to sell candy to children.
There's no ice cream in that carriage. Clearly there's no freezer.
Stupid fucking kids, serves you right.
What I like is how he dumps any pretense whatsoever and is just all, Yeah I've got a cage on my wagon and I'm carryin' children in it. What're you gonna do, local constabulary?
He IS the local constabulary! I wish this movie wasn't so fucked up, but he's a paid official of the king!
See, that is an interesting fact, one among the hundreds that I've forgotten about this movie.
I've never seen this before - but that man is my new absolute hero
Not in the book.
This scene pissed me off when I was younger because those kids are fucking idiots and you never take candy from creepy men. They deserve to be carted off in a cage.

Pederasty is so much more complicated today.
I'm glad I never saw this movie as a kid
it would be a lot easier to steal those kids if you kept the giant cage covered up. Cheaper, too.
Lollie pops! Ice cream! Rape pudding!
Kids. What a bunch of bastards. Serves them right.
Lmao me and my brother were talking about this movie a few days ago and I vaguely recalled this scene and explained it. He kept telling me I was full of shit.
