The Top Ten
I love how brutal and disgusting a lot of the early fairy tales are, I find it funny just how much Disney changed them in order to be family friendly - kempokid
When I was a kid, I was raised on these original versions. They were essentially used as cautionary tales. But yeah, they definitely are messed up, I can't deny that - kempokid
The 1955 version yes the 2014 version nope and its plain bad
Its pretty messed up when the step sisters try on the slipper and dosen't fit the step mother cuts off the first ones toe and the second ones heel so it could fit and on the end the step sisters get their eyes pecked out leaving them blinded oh and in the orginal version there is no Fairy Godmother. - egnomac
In the orginal first published version The Wolf eats both Grandma and Little Red and the story ends in latter versions a woodcutter or hunter in the grimm version flat out murders the wolf cuts him open and frees both Red and Grandma. - egnomac
Is this the story of a cannibalistic witch who lived deep in the forest and lured Hansel & Gretel with her cottage made of sweets and candy? Most disturbing indeed. - Britgirl
Not only that but both Hansel and Gretel are purposley abandoned in the woods by their parents due to their family bieng poor and are abandoned so their parents won't starve and because the kids eat too much, parenting at its worst. - egnomac
No Happy Ending. One of the Saddest Fairy tales.
In the orginal version the Queens death is much more gruesome as she's forced to wear really hot iron slippers and forced to dance until she died. - egnomac
Egnomac Yeah I'd rather get crushed by a boulder than dance in hot iron slippers!
Pinocchio in the original version was an unlikable douche who constantly caused trouble everywhere he goes and at one point is hanged. - egnomac
