Rapunzel is a 2004 comedy brickfilm by Jay Silver. It is a humorous take on the German fairy tale of the same name, and was created to test digital face animation. Multiple parodies of the film were created by other brickfilmers.
A knight approaches the base of Rapunzel's tower. He calls up to here, imploring with her to let down her hair. After a moment, Rapunzel's entire hair piece is thrown down and bounces off the ground. The knight, shocked, runs away.
