I have a love-hate relationship with Disney. Part of it is my purist tendencies toward books(and literary fairy tales, can't forget those). Another part is the incessant merchandising. But the biggest thing for me (and this relates to my first point) is that the Disney versions tend to override all other versions of the stories in the public consciousness. It's the same for almost any adaptation, but since Disney is one of the biggest names in the entertainment industry, it's influence is bigger (and thus, more irritating for me).
