** Disney had a talent for making otherwise complex or in some scenes not always that engaging stories into mesmerizing tales that the general public could easily understand and enjoy. Unfortunately this has also led to some drastic AdaptationDisplacement where many classics of world literature have been altered, simplified, and sugarcoated so much that his version became the official version instead of the other way around. To this day you'll find people complaining about film or theatre adaptations of stories they only know from the Disney adaptations, because certain scenes are so different, despite being in the original book. This can be forgiven somewhat in the case of the fairy tales (The Three Little Pigs, Snow White, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty,etc.) because they were carried over by oral tradition and thus varied from storyteller to storyteller. With the literary classics it's a bit more controversial. ''Literature/{{Pinocchio}}'', ''Literature/AliceInWonderland'', ''Literature/TheSwordInTheStone'' and ''Literature/JungleBook'' are perhaps the Disney films that resemble the original source material the least. Even after Walt's death, the Disney Studio is still criticized for deviating and sugarcoating from great public domain literary works a lot.

** Recently, Blue Sky, Illumination Defunct studios like Van Beuren, Famous Studios and so on. Terrytoons which didn't last long. Even UbIwerks' studio tried to rival Walt.
