First, I hadn't really thought lately about how many movies and TV shows have come from this story. I'm pretty sure it was not an original story for Disney, but it probably remains the definitive version.
That said, I had forgotten how much the basic story was embellished by Disney. Actual plot points, such as the fairy godmother, the transformation, etc. take up very little screen time. I'm guessing the antics of the mice take up three times the amount of screen time, …
