I always knew that many common fairy tales were actually much scarier before they were Disney-ized, but I had no idea it was this extreme.
Pedophiles, stripteases and cannibalism, Oh my!
I never liked the song "Rock a bye, Baby" and refused to scare my daughter with tumbling children out of trees. Same with Ring around the Rosie (Smallpox, anyone?).
The Middle Ages were indeed "Grimm". No happily ever after, I guess. At least the "princesses" weren't really waiting around for a prince to come save them. Or if they did, they got eaten.
