I was telling my son the story of King Midas last night. When I got to the part where he tries to eat the food, my son said, “Why didn’t he wear gloves?” 😉

This Disney version is really cute: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tgofmf4ivIw

And this Muppet one is a real treat: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v1hrUPVI4Os

To be honest, my son really enjoyed the first two. He ignored the last one. Its humor is, ahem, a little more mature.

It is really interesting how all three videos present the same myth in totally different ways.
