Oh yeah. Agreed.
Also when Mufasa died in The Lion King. Utterly tragic.
And when Mary Poppins left the children.
I was never the kid to cry when I didn't get my way, but I sure cried for everyone else.

I guess that explains why so many fairy tales involve death, ogres, children in peril (Hansel & Gretel, anyone? That story made me paranoid about hanging around ovens until I was about twelve), etc.



I'm not a complete sucker for heartache, though. I didn't feel bad at the end of Old Yeller, mainly because I've always been terrified of dogs (damn the neighbors!).

The first time I saw that was about two months after my dad died. It really hit home.

Was anyone else attracted to depressing stuff as a kid? Cheery cartoons never did much for me.
IRON GIANT! I still love that movie... I might watch it when I get home tonight...

Charlotte's Web was kinda depressing too, now that I think about it. But still a good movie (and book).

The movie was ok, but the book's absolutely beautiful. Actually, I always found Stuart Little (the book, not the god-awful movie) to be a very sad book, maybe even more of a downer than Charlotte.

when I was little I used to get depressed after watching "The Wizard".I don't even remember the reason really, it was a film about video games...

Not really depressing, but Who Framed Rodger Rabbit scared the **** out of me as a kid.

The Fox and the Hound still makes me weep.

Other sad children's movies:

Homeward Bound, the one where Shadow get's stuck in the ditch and you don't know if he'll make it home or not. The ending when he comes staggering up the hill makes me sob.

Bambi, of course, but that's a cliche choice.

All Dog's Go To Heaven. There were mobsters in this, drug dealers, prostitutes, sad situations, heartbreak... but it's animated and told through dog's point of views. It'd make a great gangster film if like, Tarantino rewrote it and shot it with the usual suspect cast... Maybe Scorsece'd direct it. And renamed it.

I never saw The Iron Giant as depressing, since the ending was so optimistic. I just hope Disney never tries to pull another piece-of-sh*t straight to DVD sequel.
