The Elves and the Shoemaker is an 1806 fairy tale by The Brothers Grimm. The story is about a poor shoemaker who gets much-needed help from elves.


  • The Muppet Classic Theater adaption of the story featured Kermit the Frog as the Shoemaker, who makes shoes so ugly that nobody will buy them. The banker demands that he and his nephew Robin pay half of what they owe him the next day. Robin wishes for a miracle, and three elves come and make blue suede shoes that people will buy.
