Humpty Dumpty is a cartoon character inspired by the popular nursery rhyme of the same name.

History[]

The original nursery rhyme has been dated all the way back to late eighteenth century England, though there is no definite source as to how it was conceived or what its meaning is. The rhyme has been altered over the centuries, but the most popular one to this day is as follows:

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall
All the king's horses and all the king's men
Couldn't put Humpty together again

Appearances[]

Once Upon a Time[]

Humpty Dumpty is mentioned in the non-canon Good Morning Storybrooke news segment included as a bonus feature on the Season Two DVD release. Under the Dark Curse, he is named Hubert H. Dumpty and is described as an "aging academic". In it, news reporter Boyd Scaremonger (the Boy who Cried Wolf) reports on an unspecified incident that happened within Dumpty's wooded estate, which his neighbor describes as "it's like an omelette in there". Scaremonger claims it may be one of several wolf-related incidents.[1]

Humpty Dumpty makes a brief appearance when Alice returns to Underland via Looking Glass and upon exploring, she lands at a chessboard where a black knight chess piece frightens her, who accidentally knocking Humpty off the chessboard unaware, followed by the White King sending his white chess pieces to the rescue in a plan to put Humpty back together again (alluding to the nursery rhyme) and as Alice picks up a piece of him and apologizes to him, one of the black chess pieces grabs the piece to help put him together again while Absolem (in his butterfly form) warns Alice that the Hatter is in risk of dying, forcing her to go back to Underland and save his life.

Trivia[]

  • Interestingly, the original nursery rhyme does not actually state that Humpty Dumpty is an egg with some art depictions having him as a portly child.
  • In the video game adaptation of Alice in Wonderland, there are portraits (colored versions of John Tenniel's illustrations from the original Through the Looking-Glass book) of Humpty Dumpty in the cabin in the woods, and a broken and half-buried statue (also resembling Tenniel's illustrations) in the Red Desert.
  • John Sessions was originally set to voice Humpty Dumpty in Alice Through the Looking-Glass, but was later replaced by Wally Wingert for unknown reasons.
