Soviet style retroscripting in Hollywood?

Pixar's newest kid flick good enough for adults, Finding Nemo
was proceeded by a "classic" Pixar short, KnickKnack.
The weird thing is that they felt compelled to change 2 characters (the "bathing beauty" and the mermaid) from a ridiculously geometric, cartoony bosomy shape to flat chested. What gives here?
This reminds me of the changes Spielberg made in E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial,
and of course, the regrettable Greedo shooting incident
in Lucas' Star Wars: A New Hope.
My question is: When is it right to change an existing work, for whatever reason?
