    Link: 7 Classic Disney Movies Based On R-Rated Stories - We can understand watering down a story to make it child-appropriate, but Disney didn.

    Not R-rated, but... I`ve seen the original Beauty and the Beast and the Disney. There is not a single similar scene anywhere.

    Ah. I remember tracking down Fox and the Hound (the novel) a few years back. It`s out of print, but I found it at a library out of town. It was one of the best books ever in terms of getting inside the animal`s heads. I appreciate writers who makes such amazing attempts at this.

    Cracked is funny, but sometimes their article titles are just SLIGHTLY misleading. "7 Classic Stories Toned Down to be a Disney Film" would be a much more accurate - though less sensational - title.

    I`m not sure how accurate these all are. I know at least in the version of the Little Mermaid I`m familiar with, her tail isn`t ripped in two, she`s given feet but it feels like walking on knives with every step, and I have never heard the soulless mermaid bit before either.

    I read somewhere (so it MUST be reputable information!) that kids who grew up watching Looney Tunes (full of cartoon violence etc.) are psychologically healthier than those who grew up with all Disney (unrealistic happy endings for all).

    It`s better to read the original stories to your kids (well maybe not the completely screwed up versions with rape and things.. haha) because that opens up discussions about death and disappointment and stuff, better preparing them for the crappiness of real life.

    Notre Dame du Paris? Don`t get me started... I can (and without a doubt will) go on for hours. I love that book, and also the Disney movie, so I love talking about them.
    Actually, I don`t like other movie versions, because the Disney one was the only one in which Quasimodo was <i>drating annoying</i>

    What about Little Red Riding Hood? In the original, the Big Bad Wolf wasn`t a Wolf, he was a Child Molester who was trying to get Little Red Riding Hood into bed after murdering the grandma and dressing up in her clothes

    It`s funny, because as a young child, I was obsessed with the unabridged versions of fairy tales and whenever a new Disney movie came out I would complain about how the stories were wrong. I liked dark and tragic stories. I wasn`t like the other children. :P
    Oh, and they forgot Snow White and Cinderella. Talk about messed up fairy tales. |-X

    though slightly misleading, I have to say I fully enjoyed the article. the only ones I was not aware of were of were: The Jungle Book, The Fox and the Hound, and The Hunchback of Notre Dame--never read the originals...yet apparently.

    Good old Walt Disney - sanitizing the world one story at a time. I`d hate to think what they`d do to a vampire!

    Damn. I found a copy of The Jungle Book at home just yesterday and was like `Totally going to read this.` Ah well, still going to read it even though I know what`s actually going to happen now. :-/

    in the little mermaid, there`s also one other thing: she becomes mute after getting her legs, so she can`t tell the prince that she`s the one who saved him therefore she can`t convince prince to marry her

    Gotta admit, At least Disney makes decent happy endings to stories that simply end bad.

    But what really ticks me off, They are co-opting the original `Sorcerers Apprentice` with this new `Harry Potter` type crap. Then to add insult to injury, They remake the `mops and buckets` scene in live action. Egads Disney, Just tear apart my fond memories of Mickey Mouse why don`t you.
