YouTube Kids last year featured a video that showed Mickey Mouse-esque characters shooting one another in the head with guns, Today reported.

Wallis Mills also contributed some illustrations. The best-known volumes of the series are the 12 Fairy Books , each of which is distinguished by its own color. The Langs did not collect any fairy tales from oral primary sources , yet only they and Madame d'Aulnoy — have collected tales from such a large variety of sources. These collections have been immensely influential; the Langs gave many of the tales their first appearance in English.
Andrew selected the tales for the first four books, while Nora took over the series thereafter. Lang's urge to gather and publish fairy tales was rooted in his own experience with the folk and fairy tales of his home territory along the Anglo-Scottish border. British fairy tale collections were rare at the time; Dinah Craik 's The Fairy Book was a lonely precedent.
According to Roger Lancelyn Green, Lang "was fighting against the critics and educationists of the day" who judged the traditional tales' "unreality, brutality, and escapism to be harmful for young readers, while holding that such stories were beneath the serious consideration of those of mature age". The series was immensely popular, helped by Lang's reputation as a folklorist and by the packaging device of the uniform books. The series proved of great influence in children's literature, increasing the popularity of fairy tales over tales of real life.

These fairies try to be funny, and fail; or they try to preach, and succeed. Real fairies never preach or talk slang. At the end, the little boy or girl wakes up and finds that he has been dreaming. Such are the new fairy stories. May we be preserved from all the sort of them! The collections were specifically intended for children and were bowdlerised , as Lang explained in his prefaces. Tolkien stated in his essay " On Fairy-Stories " that he appreciated the collections but objected to his editing the stories for children.
He also criticized Lang for including stories without magical elements in them, with " The Heart of a Monkey " given as an example, where the monkey claims that his heart is outside his body, unlike " The Giant Who Had No Heart in His Body " or other similar stories. However, many fairy tale collectors include tales with no strictly marvelous elements.
