Oh, I know!! Babar is awful! I got my old copy out to read to the kids and had to make up the whole story. "Oh look! What a funny game they're playing!"

Eh - it happens! I still love the Little House books even though Ma has some disturbing thoughts about "Indians."

Oh, my most disturbing Babar moment is in the original when the king eats the bad mushroom and dies. NIGHTMARES. Still.

Ah, Values Dissonance,as the folks over at TV Tropes put it. (I highly recommend TV Tropes, by the way: crowd-sourced literary criticism with quite a bit of savvy, for all its casualness.)

Did you know that Curious George smokes? That was a bit of a shocker.
