The Gingerbread Man from "Shrek": the Story of a Supporting Character

Today we are going to talk about a cute character from a famous cartoon. The Gingerbread Man is the hero of the popular cartoon, and 1 Oz silver coin

"Shrek" is a feature-length animated film from Dreamworks Pictures directed by Andrew Adamson and Vicki Jenson. The story is based on William Steig's children's book "Shrek!".

This movie brings together the characters of well-known and beloved fairy tales in European culture, whose traditional storylines are skillfully and comically woven into a completely different story. The comic effect is created by the unexpected connection of entirely different stories into one and the fairy tale characters themselves, who have read the tales and know what is supposed to be in them and what is not. The cartoon is also funny because the characters live in a conventional Middle Ages. Still, their speech combines a high poetic style, modern phrasing, colloquialisms, and random references to modern technology. There is also frequent parodic discussion of celebrity life and the movie industry in the dialogues.
