** Which is closer to being [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/February_Revolution historically correct]]. Bolsheviks were not a major power until November in 1917 (it's mostly forgotten these days that there were ''two'' Russian Revolutions in 1917, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/February_Revolution the first]] overthrowing the monarchy and [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/October_Revolution the second]] being the Bolshevik takeover). Well, except for [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soviet_(council) Soviets]], given you [[AdaptationDisplacement recall what that word originally meant]].

* The Live Action Film adaptation of ''Film/AnimalFarm'' qualifies big time. To give you a context, Napoleon and his fellow Pigs essentially get away with completely overturning Animalism in everything with the exception of its name, with the animals being unable to do a thing but watch in the original book. In the Live Action adaptation, its implied that Karma managed to bite Napoleon and his pigs in the butt when they neglected to use any money he utilized to actually help his fellow animals, and instead used it on trivial matters. Ironically, this ends up being justified because it was released after the Soviet Union collapsed... under very ''similar'' reasons to how Animal Farm collapsed.

* TheBBC adaptation of ''Discworld/TheAmazingMauriceAndHisEducatedRodents'' is pretty true to the book right up to the end, then suddenly says that Keith and Malicia got together and lived happily ever after with Maurice as their pet. The book ends with Maurice going on the lookout for [[AndTheAdventureContinues another stupid-looking kid he can work with]], and while there's ''hints'' there might one day be a Malicia/Keith relationship, that's all they are.

* ''Disney/{{Tangled}}'' skips the TeenPregnancy and [[spoiler: has Flynn get a [[BloodlessCarnage rather clean]] stab wound at the end, instead of having his eyes gouged out. Although one could argue that the two balanced out, since Flynn actually ''dies'', only to be brought back.]] The film was originally much darker until directors changed partway, thiugh it still lacked either of those aspects.

* In almost every film or television adaptation of ''TheAdventuresOfHuckleberryFinn'', the N-word is taken out. In one particularly tacky example, an CBS MadeForTVMovie made Jim ''white'' and removed any mention of slavery. Also, at least one removes all trace of barefootedness for some reason.

* ''Disney/TheBlackCauldron'' mishmashed plot elements from LloydAlexander's book of the same name with his earlier ''The Book of Three'', gave the amalgamated villain an annoying sidekick, turned the truculent dwarves into cute little pixies, and made beast-man Gurgi the very definition of TastesLikeDiabetes. No songs, though, and about 15 minutes of the film were removed for concerns about being too "dark" (said scenes were presumably more true to the book). Disney itself acknowledges the failure of this movie nowadays, and wishes they could give their fans a more book-accurate version. Why they don't, given that they still own the adaptation rights to the series, is anyone's guess.
* In T. H. White's ''Literature/TheSwordInTheStone'', young Wart's education by the wizard Merlin contains powerful moral lessons that will help the young man face his future role as [[spoiler:KingArthur]]. [[Disney/TheSwordInTheStone The Disney version]] throws away all of the moral messages and replaces them with (admittedly sometimes very good) visual gags.

* The 2003 Spanish animation [[WesternAnimation/ElCid El Cid: La Leyenda]] tells the story of real-life national hero Rodrigo Diaz de Vivar. Though it lacks elements such as animal sidekicks, magic and musical numbers, this is an historical adaptation that takes several liberties to make it lighter and softer.

* Most of the dubbings of FourKidsEntertainment tend to do this, removing all the religious/ pagan/ demonic imagery, removing violence and firearms, removing almost all the references to death and murder and removing all the fanservice...You got the idea.

* The animated adaptation of ''WesternAnimation/AnimalFarm'' is Disneyfied in a similar manner to the later live action version, although a notable difference is that while the animals in the live action adaptation express their displeasure of Napoleon's policies after a cumulation of him sending Boxer to the butcher shop and altering the entirety of the animal seven commandments, especially the seventh, by simply leaving the farm, the animals actually rebel outright against Napoleon and his pigs and successfully depose his regime.
