Origin and Creation
The fairy tale "The Story of the Three Bears" is an English Fairy Tale first published in 1837. Though the character of Goldilocks is associated closely with this story she was only introduced in 1849 (previously the character was an old woman.) The story has many different versions, but generally Goldilocks comes across a house in a forest inhabited by three bears (a small, medium and large sized). She first eats their porridge then falls asleep in one of their beds. They discover her sleeping their on their return

Grimm Fairy Tales Version
A somewhat different version of the story is told in Grimm Fairy Tales
. The modern setting is established with a young woman who is married to a man only so that she can get his money. In the meanwhile she is having an affair with a man her own age and they plot to kill the old man later that night. Sela
enters and the young woman reads the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. This story more closely resembles the modern setting which was introduced and not the classic fairy tale as the character is being wooed by an old man (said to be a wizard) while being in love with a man her own age. The two decide on a plot to infiltrate his home and kill him. The bears are included in this story, except they are they are shown as statues which defend the house. She enters by finally accepting his offer and when he goes to sleep she lets the young man in who goes to the room and kills the old man. AS they try to escape they are attacked by the bear statues which have come to life. The action switches back to the modern setting where the young woman races off to stop her boyfriend from killing the old man, but finds both of them dead, her young lover with what appears to be claw marks on his back.
