There is a certain version of "Little Red Riding Hood" that some authors claim to be "the original" version. For example in the Sandman comic:


Or from the movie Jin Roh.

A quick search on Wikipedia seems to dispell those claims, but I still wish to ask: Is there such a thing as the original version of "Little Red Riding Hood", that later becomes the modern version of red riding hood (assuming we could agree on what the modern version is).

    While the author is correct, it's from 1695, so seventeenth century. It's the oldest written account, but not necessarily the original version.
