Hienrich Hoffmann was a German psychiatrist and doctor. He had written poetry and sketches for his son, and was persuaded to have a collection of these printed.
The stories were not perceived as cruel or overly moral by Hoffmann's contemporaries.
This American version contains a few of the stories from the original German "Struwwelpeter" publication. (Summary by David Lawrence) (0 hr 25 min)

Cleanliness is next to the creation of a right wing religious, intolerant, ethno-state. We need to be fighting religious intolerance by encouraging our kids to be dirty. Only by living in filth can we fight intolerance. Hitler took 5 baths a day. Don't be like Hitler
