They really existed.
Reading a particular story, few people think how the author came up with the idea of creating his characters. But many fairytale characters were real prototypes. Who became the prototype for Pinocchio, Karabas-Barabas and other fairy-tale characters – later in the review.
Conceiving a story about a wooden man, Carlo Collodi was guided not just by their imagination. He knew a real person with the name Pinocchio. He walked on the wooden dentures that he made the Cabinet-maker Carlo.
It is known that in 1790 he was born in Florence Pinocchio Sanchez. As they grow, it became clear that the boy is a midget. Despite this, he went to serve in the army, but after many years came back crippled. The Cabinet-maker Carlo Bertoldi did for Pinocchio wooden dentures and septum of the nose. The ex-soldier began to earn his living, speaking at the amusement of the audience. Unfortunately, Pinocchio has done very badly: he fell off a rope, when balanced on top.
Karabas-Barabas Duremar and
Cartoon “the adventures of Pinocchio”, 1959.
Based on the tale by Carlo Collodi Alexei Tolstoy wrote his fairy tale “the Golden key, or adventures Buratino”. Despite the fact that the storyline of both works is similar, the fat had its prototype, the main features of the characters which he suffered on the characters.
The Director Vsevolod Meyerhold.
In the image of Karabas-Barabas contemporaries recognized the parody of the theater Director Vsevolod VA. The Director was a very hard character, and many believed that he treated actors like puppets. Vsevolod Meyerhold liked to wear a long scarf, but he put it in his pocket, so he does not drag on the floor. Fabulous Karabas-Barabas does the same with his long beard.
Vladimir Basov in the role of duremara.
In the tale Karabas-Barabas Duremar has an assistant. It is believed that Alexei Tolstoy wrote it off with the assistant Director Meyerhold Woldemar Luscinia. Obvious similarity of names, and also the appearance of the prototype of the character. As you know, Luscinus was thin and tall, wore a long coat.
Alice in Wonderland
The cartoon “Alice in Wonderland”, 1981.

The prototype of the girl trapped in Wonderland was Alice Liddell – the daughter of a close friend of Lewis Carroll (real name, Lutwidge Dodgson). The writer was a frequent guest in the house of Liddelow, so he often entertained Alice and her sisters stories. When Alice grew up, Lewis Carroll recorded at her request, all he had once composed on the go. On the manuscript, which the author gave the girl, stood a memorial inscription: “Christmas gift dear girl in memory of a summer day.”
Christopher Robin Milne – the prototype of the boy from the stories about Winnie-the-Pooh.
The prototype of the boy from the stories about the bear Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends was the son of Alexander Milne and Christopher Robin. In a family where the father was busy with work and her mother devoted time only to himself, the only other child was a Teddy bear. Christopher Robin grew up as a kind, but shy as a child. Researchers and psychologists involved in the analysis of stories about Winnie-the-Pooh, I believe that Christopher Robin was a prototype not only of the boy, but Piglet, who was afraid of everything, but was kind and helpful.
Karl Friedrich Hieronymus von münchhausen was a German Baron.
Fabulous Baron Munchausen, who told all the “real truth” about his travels, there was actually. The real Karl Friedrich Hieronymus von Munchausen at the age of 17, came to Russia and spent several years as a page of the husband of Anna Leopoldovna.
Cartoon “The Adventures Of Baron Munchausen”
When he returned home, he surprised friends with stories about distant Russia. In one of these stories, Munchausen mentioned the pate at the Imperial Banquet. The dish was allegedly such an extent that the person walking along it was time to read the ode. The audience laughed, not believing the tales of Baron, and meanwhile it is known that on the feasts of Anna Ioannovna was served pies, “filled with” clowns.
