Am I the only one around here who after reading the actual novel is incredibly upset at how Disney butchered this story?

That's the normal par for the course with Disney - their adaptations usually range between Pragmatic Adaptation and In-Name-Only.

The description says the film opens in the late 1880-s. Elsewhere, it is stated that most of the film takes place in the 1880-s. However, the film itself takes place roughly twenty years after the opening scene (Tarzan is a baby in the opening scene and a young adult in the rest of the movie). So either the film opens in the 1860-s, or the majority of the plot takes place in the early 1900-s.

I just read a suggestion that the film, in fact, takes place in 1910 - the comet seen in the film is not this, but this. In that case, the film might open in the late 1880s. It would match up better with the timeline of The Legend of Tarzan, which explicitly takes place in the 1910s, with Tarzan and Jane being roughly the same age as in the movie.

Is tarzan's interaction with Jane really "getting crap past the radar" - that's more for sneaking inappropriate stuff through. Tarzan was very open and obvious with what was going on (the whole point being Tarzan didn't know any social standards) - nothing really was being snuck past the radar there.

Getting crap past the radar is not about the characters sneaking inappropriate stuff through - it is the creators of the movie sneaking inappropriate stuff in it. A character peeking under another character's skirt in a children's movie definitely counts.
