I read The Mabinogian last year before reread my Complete Grimm's Fairy Tales. On my second read through, I saw how many of the stories were reworkings of older Celtic myths, Greek myths, and even a few Bible stories. Some of them had improved through the retelling, while others became disjointed.
I had someone try to horrify me with a rather disturbed old French version of Little Red Riding Hood, but when I did my own research, it became clear that it shouldn't be thought of as the original version, just one of many.
I don't think kids need to be exposed to Little Red eating bits of her grandmother, but the cautionary tale of not all strangers being your friend are good not to lose. If the wolf apologizes and knits Little Red a sweater, the story loses it's point.
My personal favorite is variations on Cinderella.
