No, and I am not a pedantic puritan! some of this stuff deals with child abuse and attempted murder, abduction and possible off-screen rape ( what the Beast did in Beauty and the Beast is morally wrong- he had no business abducting the girl, called Belle in the storyl._ There are some Disney tales which have added characters and concepts that tend to poke fun at religion- Mary Poppins for example.. Finally, there are some Fairy tales which have essentially dark, morbid plots not good for kids.

It's important to consider the age and maturity of the children before introducing them to unexpurgated Fairy Tales. Some stories can contain dark themes and content that may not be suitable for younger audiences. It might be beneficial to provide guidance and context when sharing these stories to help children navigate the more intense or mature elements.
