“Once Upon a Time” – How do the show’s characters compare to their Disney counterparts?

If you haven’t seen “Once Upon a Time,” which is currently in its second season, then I highly recommend it. The show takes classic fairytale characters and puts them in modern-day Maine in a town called Storybrooke. The series starts off with a young boy, Henry,  leaving town to find his birth mother. He carries around a storybook full of fairytales and is convinced that everyone in the town is actually one of the characters from the book’s stories. It turns out that his birth mother, Emma Swan, is Snow White and Prince Charming’s daughter. Henry’s stepmother? The evil queen, of course!

Throughout the series, other well-known fairytale characters are introduced: Rumplestiltskin, Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, Jiminy Cricket, Pinnochio and many other fairytale favorites. The first season of the show dealt with the curse that the evil queen placed upon the land and how the curse is broken. The second season, so far, is about the aftermath, now that all of the Storybrooke residents remember their lives from the fairytale world.

The following slideshow takes a look at some of the show’s characters. “Once Upon a Time” airs on ABC (which is owned by the Disney corporation), so here’s a look at how the characters compare to their Disney counterparts.

If you haven’t seen the show then be prepared for some spoilers; the slideshow does reveal some of the characters alternate identities.
