      Watching these just makes me miss the way Disney movies USE to be, when they were still masterfully hand drawn and painted still by still, by those unsung heroes, the Disney artists.....Now it's all CGI bullshit, done by some fat virgin on his computer. 😔

    Funny enough, Andersen's tales scared me more than Grimm's as a child - they were so dark and depressing. He had a horrible lonely and depressing life, and he brought it into his tales.
    I still thank the Universe and my mom for introducing me to the Disney versions first.

    I had the "creepy" version of The Little Mermaid in a cassette/book combo as a kid. Except mine had a so called happy ending. After she dives into the ocean and becomes foam her spirit becomes a daughter of the air. She was a guardian angel of sorts.

    The Grimm version of Sleeping Beauty has another dark element to it.

    In that version, the prince has a mother who's half ogre, and she PURPOSELY demands Sleeping Beauty and her two young sons cooked for her while he's away. (I dunno, male royalty always seem to go on long trips in these stories.) Fortunately for them, her servants have the same mindset as the one who worked for Snow White's mother, substituting two sheep for her sons and a deer for Sleeping Beauty. But she figures out she's been had, and conjures up a big pot of snakes and lizards to kill ALL of them. She's slain by her own son, who catches her in the act and shoves her into it. (And they FINALLY live happily ever after.)

    Of course, as scary as the prince's mom likely was for readers at the time, I doubt she could have matched Malificent. That woman scared the hell out of me when I was a kid...

    I don't know if it was the original one, but the one Beauty ad the Beast I read was about arranged marriages and how they're beneficial...after the Beast sleeps with Belle, of course. Basically, it told young girls who were marrying men twice or three times their age that it's good to get arranged marriages because your husband might actually be good

    9 I have to read the original novel

    8 Never knew that last part, I knew that he and his real mom weren't all that great

    7 Wow, I knew a little bit but not the thinning part

    6 Whoa...that's heavy

    5 Yeaaaah....I heard about the original tale...I wonder how it would be if we got the original stories instead of these Disneyfied watered down versions. They would read like horror films

    4 Hmmm...I like that one

    3 I had the audiobook...terribly sad....

    2 I think this is probably the widest known original tale

    1 Wow, that one is...pretty crazy and the most eff'd up

    From what I've heard about JM Barrie, he was kind of a creepy guy who had a weird attachment to his friends' kids and a strange non-intimate marriage to his wife. Anyway, these original stories sure do have some deep levels of darkness to them!

    I have the collection of the original works of the Brothers Grimm. It kinda surprised me that when talking about Snow White, the narrator failed to mention that when all of that crap went down, ( Evil queen, murder attempts, poison apple, glass coffin, prince charming, gets married, etc.) she was only 7 years old. To me that alone should have landed SW in the #2 spot at least.
