IF YOU had a happy childhood filled with fond memories of Disney movies, prepare for that to be crushed. We were lied to.

IF DISNEY movies were a huge part of your childhood then you’ll understand the palpable horror of all the times we realised Mickey Mouse LIED TO US.

That sad, moaning sound you hear is a little part of our innocence dying, like when a fairy’s light goes out because children don’t believe anymore.

An animation powerhouse, Disney took classic stories or fairytales and sanitised them for kids, making billions over decades through movie tickets, VHS tapes, toys and theme parks where you have to line up for two hours for each ride.

You could argue Disney did us a kindness by shielding sensitive young souls from broken hearts and saving parents from having to explain the decaying corpse of Esmeralda (“She’s just sleeping, honey, they’re not maggots, they’re marshmallows!”).

Not that Disney was blameless, perpetuating the idea that young women need to be rescued by a prince, or that all stepmothers are inherently evil. But for the most part, it cocooned us in a little world where good always prevailed, baddies got what they deserved and destined lovers never have to worry about bin night.

These are the heartbreaking, and sometimes grisly, truths Disney tried to hide from us.

*THE LITTLE MERMAID
*HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME
*SLEEPING BEAUTY
*THE LION KING
*CINDERELLA
*MULAN
*POCAHONTAS

They ain't the classics, except maybe sleeping beauty and cinderella...

Snow White, pretty scary Queen.

Bambi, death by Hunter.

Pinnochio, swallowed by a whale, etc.

Peter Pan, Tink gets blown up.

Cinderella, cursed.

Truth is that the Grimm's fairytales are pretty gruesome, in parts. But we are talking about animation for little kids.

I have a copy of "Grimms Marchen" which is in German so I can't read it, except for a few words here and there. It was given to me by a neighbour (who was born in Austria) with a bunch of other books when she was moving away.

Some poems we learned at school had some interesting histories.

Ring around the rosies
A pocket full of poses.
A'tissue, a'tissue, they all fall down.

The Red rings represent the circular sores of the black plague.

A pocket full of posies, they thought that the deseased was carried in the smell of rotting flesh,
So the posies were thought to fend off the deseased.

A'tissue, sneezing was one of the final symptoms, sneezing blood.

They all fall down.......dead

Most nursery rhymes that we remember from childhood are centuries old ....
