The same stories can be found all over the world, and they can date back a very very long time. In the Aarne-Thompsen index again, there is a collection of anecdotes and humorous stories found by the numbers AT1350 to AT 1874. The story of Parsifal is probably the clearest - the boy's mother lives isolated in the forest to keep him from even SEEing a knight.
It's the name of a city in Poland (sometimes Russia, depending who was winning which war) where, for some reason unknown to me, was designated in Jewish folklore as the home town of numbskulls. The Myth of Hera, Queen of the GodsThe story of Hera, Queen of the Gods is featured in the book entitled Greek Gods, Heroes and Men by Caroline H.
1) There is information in the first three books below about the Druids mistletoe and the Christian legend as well. 2) While mistletoe sounds more like a foot condition than anything that would inspire romance, you should probably count your blessings that all you're getting is a kiss. The tradition of kissing under the mistletoe probably got its start with the Druids as well.
According to one explanation, the Norse god Balder was killed with an arrow made of mistletoe.
Others point to the Druid tradition of laying down arms and exchanging greetings under the mistletoe as the origin of the kissing tradition.
Balder was the most glorious god alive, handsome and pure in spirit, the son of Odin and Frigga. The goddess Hel agreed to release Balder from her kingdom of death only if the whole creation and everything in it wept for the slain god.
This was the beginning of the end, for Loki then allied himself with the Giants and demons, who would bring ruin on the Aesir.
4) Another more recent use for mistletoe discovered in Europe is Iscador or Iscar (check it out on google) to stop cancer tumor growth.

1) I checked the web for stories on cooperation and found a website I've never seen before that you may find useful. Scroll down on this page to find this California Indian story about Coyote who enlists the help of his friends to bring fire back to the people. A local Illinois legend where the Illiniwek must come together to destroy the mighty Piasa. Response: There are some good ones in the Pentamerone - one is The Flea, and the other one is The Booby.
And the wolf did six months of community service and anger management therapy and is now a vegan who demonstrates his recipes and culinary skills at Whole Foods. I did learn one year that the ending MUST include the wolf getting eaten, at least if there are younger kids in the audience. I usually end the 'happy version' with the wolf running holding his flaming rear to HIS mummy crying over what the pigs did to him. Good gosh, if the origins of this story about 1 wolf and 3 pigs is about Christopher Columbus and native Americans, then I'll never tell that tale again. I understand it originated as a parable showing that each of us grasps just part of an issue (the nature of god in the original version), no one is wholly right, we need to listen to the conjectures of all. Response: This also sounds like and Anansi stories about the gifts his seven sons his sons possess. This just made me think of another tale, The Magic Pomegranate: A Jewish Folktale (On My Own Folklore). Response: All these contributions about the cooperation of the unique talents of others to help achieve a goal, got me to thinking. Then there are the stories where animals use their abilities to achieve a goal - Coyote Brings Fire and The Long Winter. Response: For cooperation stories I use a tale from the Slavey Nation called The Long Winter.
Another story that would work is the one about the quails who learn that they can escape the hunter's net if they all flap together. 4) Something has been gnawing at me about this cooperation theme, and maybe this message has hit on it for me. On the other hand, so much is in the angle you put on a story that I can certainly see myself using one such story in a program on cooperation. One day people come to him and say there is a stranger in the villae named Spider, he leaves webs across people's doorways, we do not like him, and we want you to tell him to leave.
Same thing happens with Rat (takes rice, meat, kola nuts from people's houses), Anteater (digs holes in people's yards and they step in them and trip), and Fly (buzzes around people's heads and bites them on the behind). Kanu Below can't get past his grief, and one day he says he wishes someone could go and talk to Kanu Above and ask for his daughter back. Spider builds a web ladder to the sky, and they all climb up and go to Kanu Above's palace to ask for KB's daughter.
KA tells them they will talk about it in the morning, and puts them in a hut and locks the door. At last they are allowed to talk with KA, and he says that if they can pick out KB's daughter, they can take her home. Of course, they have never seen KB's daughter as she was taken before they arrived in the village. When the girls parade in front of the four friends, Fly buzzes around until he finds the girl who dressed herself. Kanu Below rejoices in the return of his daughter and calls the village together to tell everyone how valuable these four are to him. So, yes, there are lists of these stories, even beyond what Storytell members managed to list here. By the way, I also see the connections between these stories and Drakestail, but the indexes put Drakestail with Tale Type 715 Half-chick (which from the description bears little resemblance to the Half chick story I'm familiarwith) but does resemble Drakestail in that the Half chick, to right a wrong, travels with companions who create such trouble for the miller who has wronged him that the miller gives back money he has taken.

So, for whatever the reason Drakestail is assigned differently from these tales of amazing companions. Thanks to so many who responded to my call for cooperation stories and the truly insightful discussions that followed. I also put that call out to the Northland's Google Group (a new perk when you are a Northland's member) Lynne Clayton recommended the following story. Oh, and I'm getting ready for a spendiforous weekend basking in the glory of the Northlands. 7) Y'all, I've just come from SOS and I can't find the story several of us suggested to Marilyn a few weeks ago for cooperation--about the birds lifting the nest by flying up together.
Here are two other references for the story, which appears to have originated in the Panchatantra: The Complete Version, including a more expanded version by Rafe Martin. To retell any stories, obtain permission from the copyright holder if the material is not in the public domain.

They credit the English for taking peace one step further by puckering up, then plucking a berry from the bunch and discarding it. While all the gods hurled things at Balder, Balder's blind brother Hoder sat by himself, unable to join the fun. Messengers were sent everywhere, and all things cried over Balder's death until one messenger came upon a Giantess who refused to weep. I give myself shots in my tummy every other night of a liquid with Iscar in it, and I'm already going into my 4th year of fighting a cancer at a stage I was told that the average survival for was about 2 years.
In fact, it's the only version I've ever heard - I live in the UK and fortunately for us, Bayou Seco tour here every year, and nearly always play it, especially if you ask them.

Kids love them both, and I usually play a game with them while telling, letting them impersonate the characters with magical abilities or find objects to throw behind their backs to stop the giant, and so on. And the whole point of the story was that if you don't plan ahead and make wise investments, well trouble lurks around the corner.

Variants which end with a sighted person revealing the identity of the elephant, seem to miss the point.
Six brothers learn to excel at different skills and combine them to rescue the daughter of the King of Norway from a wicked magician.

Head has a good life, but as he meets and teams up with arms, body and then legs he discovers how much more they can do when they work together.
When I tell it I use body cut outs on the overhead projector as the visuals make the story much funnier. I second both points: that Magical Friends tales might fit better for diversity than for cooperation, and that much can depend on the angle from which they are told. Kanu Below tells them "This man, Spider, he does some things that we do not like, but there is much good in him. Fly goes to the room where all the girls are getting dressed and notices that the women help them with their beads and hair, except for one girl, who dresses herself all alone.
He bites her on the behind, and she jumps, and the friends pick her out and take her back to Kanu Below. I think of it as having these steps: Send the hero out on a journey Hero gathers companions along the way When trouble comes the companions help the hero succeed.
Interestingly enough, one of these sites is sponsored by the Fetzer Institute and looks like it has a lot of character education material on it. Lesson plans, complementary folktales, and parent resources to involve students in philanthropy and serving their communities.
Also says her 5th (and last) husband was nearly 20 years her junior, and gives some evidence that she may not have been murdered but instead moved to the El Paso area. Helen of Troy was both mortal and immortal, born of the coupling of Leda as swan and the god Zeus. I once told a Chelm story at a senior residence, and when I asked them if they actually knew anyone from Chelm, one woman raised her hand and said, Yes, her brother-in-law was a Chelmite, and he's exactly the way people describe them. The sack caught on the top of a tree and ripped open and all the foolish souls tumbled down into Chelm. The amazing story of Hera, Queen of the Gods really is easy reading for kids and children who are learning about the history, myths and legends of the Roman and Greek gods.

What I like about it is that it has stories categorized by a lot of the more abstract themes that people on the list ask for time and time again. Another one is The Argonauts, it's long and better for older kids, but everyone there contributes to the adventure according to their own special skills. I've even seen one version in which the brick house is the undesirable one, taking so long to build that the pig doesn't have shelter in time, and the quicker options are (as for the pioneers?) more practical. I was amazed to hear that the 3 Pigs story dates only to the late 1600's, ie the period of European colonization of a world where nature (and ungrateful native people) really could blow your house in and wipe you out if you weren't very well prepared. When she falls in love with them all and cannot choose just one, the gods intervene and make them the Pleiades.
Its philosophy is healthy, it views life as a whole and escapes tragedy by seeing the comic situation in the midst of trouble.
Rat nibbles a hole and goes out and steals some food, so when the servants come back after several days expecting to find them dead, they are alive. The children keep fighting and creating a lot of chaos and unrest at home, so the parents lure them into the woods and leave them there over night.
And why do I not remember ever hearing about the Fetzer Institute before even though it started right here in Michigan - in Kalamazoo? From what I understand in her words most, if not all cultures have them, and they are interchangeable from one culture to another, only the name of the fool varies according to teller.
It is only when he spends some time in the forest in the holy sanctuary of the hermit; and faces the destruction and grief he has caused that he becomes wiser. The characters of the heroes in this type of fable demonstrated the virtues of courage, love, loyalty, strength, perseverance, leadership and self reliance.

They start work on a rug, but start arguing about whose contribution to it is most important. Helen's abduction -- whether she was willing or not -- by the son of the king of Troy set off one of history's most memorable wars. She sat beside him in the council-hall of the gods, on a throne only a little less splendid than his own.
Whereas the villains demonstrated all of the vices and were killed or punished by the gods.
The gods grieved, but Odin and Frigga sent another son as an envoy to the underworld, Niflheim, to see if Balder could be ransomed.
But the gods revenged themselves on Loki by binding him in a deep cave and causing a poisonous serpent to drip venom in his face, causing the wicked being intolerable pain.
After the parents leave, the children open the gifts separately and selfishly, but they soon discover that if they are going to get through the night and find their way home in the morning they will have to work together and share each other's gift. During Civil War, freighted cotton to Matamoros on Rio Grande, earning money to buy munitions for Confederacy.
She was the greatest of all the goddesses, and was extremely proud of her own strength and beauty.
The gods rejoiced to know that Balder was invulnerable and invented a game in which everyone threw things at him. Loki's wife caught much of this venom in a cup, but whenever she emptied the cup Loki writhed in agony, creating earthquakes.
It is through cooperation that they find their way home and a new love and respect for their siblings. So it's not just innocence that the Fool has, but access to a perspective that is blocked to the others. Got tired of supporting third husband and asked him to leave, but he demanded half her property. Why the fool, not the Knight of good deeds, or the Magician or anything else, what about the Fool shows us the human-ness of ourselves? The goddess Iris was her servant and messenger, and flew swiftly through the air upon her errands. The names of so many of the heroes and characters are known today through movies and games but the actual story about such characters are unknown. The rainbow, which seemed to join heaven and earth with its beautiful arch, was thought to be the road by which Iris traveled.
Reading a myth story such as Hera, Queen of the Gods is the easy way to learn about the stories of the classics.The Magical World of Myth and LegendThe Short Story and Myth of Hera, Queen of the GodsThe myth about Hera, Queen of the Gods is featured in the book entitled Greek Gods, Heroes and Men by Caroline H. Here was not only proud of her own beauty, but she was also very jealous of the beauty of any one else.
She would even punish women that she thought were too beautiful, as if they had done something very wrong; she often did this by changing them into animals or birds. There was one woman whom Hera changed into the form of a savage bear, and turned out to wander in the forest because she hated her beautiful face. The poor creature was terribly frightened among the fierce animals of the woods; for although she herself now had the form of a beast, her soul was still human.
Echo was a merry, beautiful girl, whose tongue was always going, and who was never satisfied unless she could have the last word. As a punishment for her deception, Hera took away her voice, leaving her only the power to repeat the last word that should be spoken to her.
Echo now no longer cared to join her companions in their merry games, and so wandered through the forests all alone. But she longed to talk, and would often hide in the woods, and repeat the words of hunters and others who passed that way. At last she learned to take delight in puzzling and mocking the people who listened to her. But he was very unkind, and would take no notice of her except to tease her for the loss of her voice.
She became very unhappy, and began to waste away from grief, until at last there was nothing left of her but her beautiful mocking voice. To punish Narcissus for his unkindness, they changed him from a strong young man to a weak, delicate flower, which is now always called by his name.
