C132. Baer (p. 129). Brother Rabbit Frightens Brother Tiger

This is Chase132.

ATU0126 sheep frightens the wolf
J2400 foolish imitation
K1715 weak animal makes large one believe he has eaten many of the large one's companions

Baer: "The tale consists of two episodes both of which occur in African tales." ... and Dundes has contended that Type 126 could be African rather than European

Baer "I would call this an Afro-American tale derived from African tradition in its overall structure, its individual elements, the characters and their relation to one another."
