YMMV: The Bobbsey Twins

  • Adaptation Displacement: Starting in 1960, the Syndicate began introducing new editions of the old books to update the technology and remove some of the Values Dissonance inherent to starting at the turn of the century. In some cases, entire storylines were changed.
    • Probably the most notable (and notorious) instance was The Bobbsey Twins and Baby May. The original version, dating from a time before widespread government child-protective agencies, had the family taking in an abandoned baby literally left on the doorstep. It had to be revised, to involve a circus and an abandoned baby elephant.
