* LighterAndSofter: Russian version by AlexanderPushkin removes the most gruesome and squicky aspects of the story. The Queen doesn't want to eat her step-daughter's heart - "just" have her left in the forest to die; the prince doesn't fall in love with a corpse - he was engaged to her even before the kidnapping and when he finds her, he breaks the coffin in grief, and she's revived by the PowerOfLove; and they don't make the Queen dance in red-hot iron shoes (because people don't do such sick stuff in Russia!) and she just dies of spite and envy (or maybe kills herself) after learning that the princess is alive and recovered.

Other adaptations have varied from ''SnowWhiteAndTheThreeStooges'' to ''Manga/{{Pretear}}'', which rewrites it as a MagicalGirlWarrior show, the very loose BettyBoop adaptation entitled only as ''WesternAnimation/SnowWhite'' and then there's ''CoalBlackAndDeSebbenDwarfs'', which would be a side-splitter had not excessive UncleTomfoolery [[ValuesDissonance ruined it]].

Because of Snow White's rather [[{{Goth}} unusual]] [[EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette appearance]] and the disturbing psychological issues in the story, "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" is frequently subject to {{Grimmification}} or DarkerAndEdgier treatment. One such example is a [[Film/SnowWhiteATaleofTerror 1997 horror version]] with Creator/SigourneyWeaver as the queen. There's also a 2001 version subtitled [[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0255605/ Fairest of Them All]] with Miranda Richardson as the queen and Kristin Kreuk as Snow White, and [[RainbowMotif rainbow dwarves]], named after the days of the week. Finally, let's not forget Creator/NeilGaiman's short story "[[http://thedreaming.holycow.com/1999/10/10/snow-glass-apples/ Snow, Glass, and Apples]]", where we have a perspective flip that takes some of the more eerie parts of the story, and makes them much much worse.
