I've always known that the Disney version of many of my favorite childhood stories was highly sanitized. Here in the Netherlands, there is a theme park called "De Efteling" where there are rides that also tell a number of these familiar fairy tales, including some of their less-than-happy endings. But apparently even those were cleaned up more than I imagined.

Here is a link to some info on the origins of 10 of the more ghastly fairy tales.
