Fairy Tales

I've been thinking about fairy tales a lot lately because they play such a large role in my current writing. We've all heard the common ones: Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast, etc.  But where and why did we hear them? From Disney?

Way back when, fairy tales were told as word of mouth stories. While our modern society has generally allowed television and theater to take the place of this tradition, I wanted to bring back that feel for my books so I am trying to think of fairy tales that haven't been done by Hollywood yet.

Any ideas?
